Lock em up or bring em home?

Picking up my new 26BH at the end of this month. Very excited but apprehensive as well. Especially since the first 40 miles of only way to get it home is I81. But I digress....

I'll be storing it at a fenced storage facility a few miles down the road. Very rural area. I thought I'd seek opinions on whether it'd be best to leave the battery (particularly) and the LP tanks in place chained up, or take it (them) off and store at home.

Slowly ac***ulating the hoses, fitting and other stuff.

If your storage place is fenced and supposedly secure Id leave it there, disconnect the battery. If I were gonna pay someone to store my stuff, and it is a secure place, Id make sure the STORE er gaurantees against theft and replacement.

When we had to store our trailer away form home I always brought my batteries home. That way I could keep them charged on the three stage.

If you leave them there, you can also keep them charged with a solar panel....

For me, it would depend on how often I was using the trailer. If I was pulling it out every weekend, I wouldn't want to have to remove and re-install batteries and tanks that often. If I were putting it up for the winter or something, I'd probably remove everything I could for safer storage (and charging, etc).
