Nice touch when they do this.

At the very least, a battery is required for the TT. As already stated, the travel trailers electric brakes need it to operate if it becomes disconnected from the tow vehicle. Any TT that has electric brakes cannot be 'legally' operated on public roads without its own battery.

I don't know of any TT dealership that sell new TT's without providing a battery. The chances are strong that a buyer would not bring their own when they pick it up (TT) to take it home. Not sure what the law is if this were to happen. Can the dealer refuse the owner to leave the site without a battery? If so, could they be held liable if an accident occured on the way home?

Congrats on the 16XRB! I have had mine for a year now and I love it!.

So far, the only "problems" I have had with it are that the bathroom faucet cold knob broke - the clear plastic knob portion only (cheap to replace) and then ast summer I found water pooling under the fridge, in the storage cabinet there. It turns out that it was due to running the AC one very hot camping trip and the drain pan needed to be caulked (at the AC unit). Dealer took care of that under warranty of course.

Another alternative to the cut off switch o battery removal is install a cheap solar charger. Mine was $14 at Harbor Freight. If you get one that is less than 5 amp then you don't need a controller. The parasitic drain (probably you CO detector) and the small charger will keep a healthy cycle on your battery.

Regarding the battery during storage/non-use: I simply remove the fuse from the battery wiring thingy (technical term, "thingy")and keep the battery locked on the tongue.

By the way, our 16XRB's Norcold regrigerator only has two modes of operation; AC (120 VAC) and LP gas. We do not have the DC (12 volt) operation for the refrigerator.
