Dead coach batteries

We recently purchased a class C Greyhawk. I went inside it tonight only to find that the lights wouldn't come on. It has been a couple of weeks since it was plugged into ac. Is it necessary to turn the main breaker off to the coach when you are not using it? I plugged it in to the ac outlet and all worked fine so I am assuming that something has drawn the batteries down. Learning as we go.

Welcome to JOF

In most RV's there are items (LP alarm, radio, TV amplifier, etc.) that can draw down the battery(s) if the RV isn't plugged into shore power during storage allowing the converter/charger to do it's job.
