Winter Storage

Hello all!
I have my 2020 Ventana 4369 in a heated storage for the season. My question is I have a 30amp plug also. So when i plug it in after changing my shore power to 30amp do i need to set the inverter on charge for the batteries or will it automatically do this? I also assume i need to turn on both battery disconnects outside and inside. I guess i just treat as if I’m plugged into a campground long term? Thanks !

Yes- turn on your battery disconnects & it will charge fine on 30 amp shore power. Check your screen after connecting to ensure it's showing a charging level (Bulk, maintaining or floating) going to the house batteries.

Most battery systems I have known needed thre battery cut off on showing the battery charging level may have changed for newer coach's, this link has battery charging systems for coach's and it comes from this link.
Your Owners Guide should help you also.
Its like your camping in storage.

Charger on, inverter off, both battery disconnects on is how I set mine. Kept the refrigerator on and closed with ice maker arm up (water pump off).

Will the refrigerator stay on with inverter off? I have a new storage arraignment this winter in Florida.

I only have 30 Amp service, so can I leave one air, charger and refrigerator on without a problem ?

This is exactly how we do it. The refrigerator will continue to run. The refrigerator will not run if the power goes out in your storage facility, which is a good thing. For longer term storage we wash out the fridge, turn off the fridge power and secure the door so it is open about an inch.

We have a 15 amp outlet in our storage place.
