I will be placing my new to me 2016 Spirit 24RB in a fully enclosed storage unit at a storage facility which has available electricity which I can plug into by using a 15amp adapterr cord. I want to keep my two AGM house batteries charged while in storage (3 to 4 months) by using shore power. Two questions:

1) Should both the inverter battery disconnect located between the generator and battery tray, and the battery disconnect switch located at the entrance stepwell be left on or???

2) Does the Outback power inverter/charger in this situation act as a trickle charger which will not overcharge my two AGM house batteries during the storage period and also not damage the Outback for this 3 to 4 month usage?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

I leave my coach plugged in all the time in storage. The outback inverter charger will float charge when fully charged.

Thank you John S. for your reply.
Do you leave both switches turned on?

Yes both switches must be left ON. You can't expect the batteries to be charged if the connect switches to them are left OFF.

Thank you Whemme.
Still trying to learn about this coach and its electrical switches.
