We pull our batteries when the trailer is in storage and keep them on a battery tendor in the garage at home. I think this helps maximize the batteries life and this way I know the are always ready to go. Takes 10 min to remove and place on tendor, little bit of a PIA, but worth it to me.

I dump after each trip, adding water to the black tank if it's not at least 2/3 full after using it on the trip. Occasionally I'll use a bucket to move some grey to the black if my fresh water tanks are getting low.

Hitches are noisy. A little concerning at first, but then you get used to the "expected" noise your particular hitch makes -- especially while turning.

I used to pull the fuse and leave the battery in its box. After several batteries went on a "walkabout" I started removing it. There is some parasitic drain when in storage (stereo, smoke / CO detector).
