Should be fine for 2 days, small draw from the sensors and fridge. If you don't need the fridge on then you can turn off the 12 volt.

Why unplug it? No need to do that. Ours is plugged in24/7 when not on the road.

A Traveler has a good point, there is no need to disconnect the power unless you think someone might steal your power cord while you are away.

I agree. Why unplug it? Mine is stored here at my house and is always plugged in even if we leave for a few days.
