We run as little as possible while stored in the pole barn - only the battery converter to keep the batts. toped off. 1-2 amps of 120vac. 2 days before we go we turn on the fridge.

Just the Fridge and the Converter to keep the batteries topped off.

I am just plugged in to a 15 am circuit.

Hi fxdave,
Basically, nothing. The charger is on to keep the batteries topped off. That is about it. The shore connection is there, if we need it. When the time comes to get on the road, HVAC, water heater, fridge and all other needed components are turned on about 3 days before we leave.

Keep plugged in 24/7 in a 30a outlet in the pole barn. Only use the converter/charger with BDS off while stored......keeps all the batteries real happy.

We also have a 30a outlet at the house/garage/driveway for when we are invaded by all the kids and grandkids for additional room. Also prepare it there when getting ready to head out on a trip.

My MH stays under cover and hooked up to 50 amp. Only keep the chargers on for the house and chassis batteries. It is parked out back of my sister's house and we use it for a bedroom when we go there to visit, then we run whatever is necessary to be comfortable.

Rig stays plugged into 50 amp service next to my house. AC set to 80, fridge on and batt charger on.

We keep the fridge stocked with condiments, beer and wine. We use the coach every other weekend.

We have the converter charging the batteries and the dehumidifier keeping the moisture out of the coach (hi humidity here). Nothing else on unless we're working in or using the coach.

I connect my 50amp unit to 30amp home outlet with 50/30 adapter and keep one a/c set at about 90 so trailer don't bake in this Louisiana heat and to keep humidity down some inside. Everything else is off. Alternate a/c s every few days.
