I have mine in a carport type cover that is level so I just back her in, level fore to aft and shut off the frige.
Sometimes I go out and watch TV or take a nap so its nice to have it level and powered up.

I built a 45'X45' shop/boat shed and rv shed. Rv goes in the middle with boat on one side and shop on the other. I keep mine plugged in at all times. If company comes over to spend the night, they can stay in the camper if they wish to. I keep an eye on the battery's water level. Just added some Friday. Refrigerator is off most of the time when parked in the shed. Had a 12 year old wildcat that I did the same thing to with no problems.

I store mine 15 minutes from my house on a farm...but before trips, the preceding week...I park it in the driveway or on the street and run power to it. Over the winter I pull the battery and put it on a minder.

Yep, all the time. 12ga extension cord to my garage. Keeps the battery topped off and can plug in a fan in there on hot days for some circulation. Just make sure your converter/charger is the smart type so as not to boil off the batteries.

Keep mine plugged in to a 20 amp circuit in the garage. I run my mini fridge all the time for adult beverage. Main fridge is off. Microwave is on a surge protector and is off. Maybe some day I'll put in a 30 amp circuit.

Been plugged in since 08 by a RV connection I installed next to the pad at the S&B. Tilted low in the front for drainage and 1" side to side.

I keep ours plugged i with the fridge running, because we go out at least once or twice a month and I find it easier to keep the fridge stocked with condiments and drinks to make prepping for each trip easier.

We keep our 5th wheeler plugged into a 20 amp outlet in our garage with our surge protector inline anytime its plugged in!!! It is leveled when we come home so if we want to turn the fridge on its ready but keep the doors cracked open while off. We can run everything but the AC if need be but with the snow we receive in Utah, we cover it with an ADCO triple layer cover that is vented to help keep moisture out and protect the full body graphics from the harmful UV rays as wheel as keep the tires covered also for UV protection. The tires are filled to 98 lbs. which is what the tire manufacture states is safe while storing to inflate to 20% over max inflation of 80 lbs. and when were ready to go just close fridge doors and turn on electric fridge to pre-cool after removing the ADCO cover and tire covers!!! *** (remember to check battery water levels as not evaporate it dry!!!)

We're waiting on our new WH 28bhks, reading and learning. What is the reasoning behind over inflating the tires while in storage? Thanks!
