I live in San Diego. Temperature is always moderate. When I store my coach for more than a couple of weeks, can I, or should I leave my shore power hooked up. My batteries go dead even though I switch them to "store" when I leave. Thanks

If you have access to AC, I would leave the MH plugged in and make sure that the battery water level is up and that this is checked on a regular basis. I would also recommend one of these Trik L Start in that it makes sure your stating battery is also kept charged.

If you do plan to leave the coach hooked to shore power for an extended period, you may want to be sure the block heater is unplugged (provided one has been installed). Not doing so could burn out the block heater.

IMO, the best way to keep the batteries charged is via solar panels. If you are going to use the shore power to keep the batteries charged, then you might consider replacing the OE charger/controller with a more sophisticated controller that won't over charge the batteries.
