I grew up there in the Carson City, and Dayton area. My father still lives in Dayton. He keeps a solar panel connected to his trailer during storage to keep the batteries topped off. He and I both keep a few newspapers rolled up in the refer and freezer but keep the doors closed. The newspapers keep the mildew and smell down and keeping the doors closed keeps any mice who might find their way in during the winter out.
I used to keep my trailer plugged in at home all the time since I did not have a solar panel. Now that I live in Alaska; once its winterized, I remove the batteries and store them inside the garage on a shelf (we have heated garages).
If you want a really good RV specialist who is down to earth and wont mess you around, go to Ed's RV repair in Moundhouse. (he may seem a bit standoffish at first, but just keep being frank with him) He will tell you like it is and he will help you with absolutely anything. Also he will beat any of the dealerships around. He can be very busy at times, but both my father and I have taken out trailers in to him to have work done and since he was really busy, he took us around out rigs and showed/told us how to maintenance and/or repair whatever it was. Back when I lived there in Carson City, I had a mishap with my fifth wheel and tore a big hole in my black water tank, and tore off my back stabilizer jacks. He told/showed me how to repair the tank myself and save $$ as well as how to put on better stabilizers and how to give my 5er a suspension lift. I know I rambled a bit long but I hope it helps.
