We keep ours turned off but then ours is an after market install (by us) and everything that will work with the inverter will also work when connected to shore power so no need to have the inverter on when we are on shore power.

I keep mine on all the time. Have a residential refer running too. If I'm not plugged in the 600 watts of solar will keep the batteries charged and if not the AGS will fire up the generator and that will keep batteries charged.

Not 100% sure this is the right procedure but it seems to work for me.

Limited battery and limited solar.
Dry camp most of the time.
Need to conserve DC power.
Inverter in B+ only for TV.
Always off unless watching TV.
