The original question, as asked relates to storage. Not sure how the battery will be discharged to 50% while on shore-power, unless there is an extended power failure for about a week or so. I believe we have addressed the question, without trying to confuse the OP.

If you would like to continue the discussion regarding charging, discharging.. loads, quality of TT chargers, you may want to create a new thread to carry on the discussion.

Just my thoughts,

On the other hand, RVs tend to use power on a steady basis for long periods of time. Charging a cold or hot battery in these conditions that has been pulled down to 50% or below can damage them and why some of the better battery chargers monitor battery temperatures.
