I could have just left it without fear?
If you want to know for sure, with your TV parked, not running and nothing plugged into the connector, measure between pin 2 and pin1 if you read 12VDC, then you need to disconnect the TT, if it reads 0VDC, the TT can remain connected without fear of killing the TV battery.

I have always lived under the principle, "When In Doubt, Don't ". Things change and systems fail. I always disconnected my Trailer from the truck when I was going to RON. My truck was a daily driver, I knew it would start and get me on the road again. My RV often was in storage for several months and who really knows what has changed within it until a few days down the trail. Just my 2 cents worth.
