Keeping the fridge on between trips is not an option for us since we keep our TT at a storage facility......

But one thing I can tell you is I keep the coffee in it!!

With our old TT we kept it well stocked most of the year. We use our units all year long (less frequently in the winter). The refrigerator is left on and we sometimes use it to store frozen food that we don't have room to store in the house. I also keep a disaster supply of sealed food in the RV in case the worst happens.

Naw, I just am not sleeping on the ground ever again! lol

Got that "no sleeping on the ground anymore" comment by Namusmc65. No more of that for me either.

If it's closed it stays in the unit, i.e. cereal, chips and sides or canned items. If it's opened out it comes when we get home.

All the spices, oils and basic ingredients stay in my unit. All sugars, flours and oils are in sealed containers like rubber maid or such. If the trips are close, 2 weeks or less then the fridge is on with condiments and other basics in it.

We replenish the basics as needed and keep them stocked until the winter when it all comes out.

The first trip we re-stock everything in the bath, kitchen and bedrooms. I used to leave the fridge running with some things in there, but the past couple of years, I've been removing all the food and turning off the fridge to save electricity.

Since your trailer is in a storage facility, and used a couple of weekends a month, I'd be inclined to clean out all the food . . . even canned goods. The inside of a trailer can get well above 120 degrees if it's in the sun. That could (potentially) pop cans wide open. Especially pop cans.

I'm pretty much in your shoes (for the time being), and I remove all food between trips. I try to do the laundry as soon as I get home, so I can restock the towels, bedding, etc. right to the trailer before I return it to storage. I leave dishes, flatware, paper plates, glasses, paper towels, napkins, cleaning supplies, tools & TP. I also drain my water tanks, but refill them just before I leave for the next outing. If it's convenient, I'd have the propane tank(S) topped off on your way to the storage facility. It will be one less thing to forget to do before your next outing.

Hope this helps. Happy camping!

Only perishable foods and dirty clothes leave the trailer. Everything else stays.
