My first question is "Does your TT have Electric Brakes", and are you towing it. If it has Electric Brakes, and you are towing it, the answer is you need to have a battery. I believe most states require this in case the TT disconnects from the TV the break away switch will activate the TT brakes.
If you are just leaving it on a site and have shore power (24/7), not really necessary. Just pull the main 30 amp fuse by the battery location (to protect from the positive cable from shorting against the frame). Most of the TT's that are seasonal at the site we go to do not have batteries, but they do not move them at all. A battery will also absorb any 12VC surges that the TT's battery charge controller may produce.
