Is there a reason why you want to have the battery disconnect to off?

As dalebra stated, it's not a problem.

But I would have the battery disconnect to on when connected to shore power for charging / maintaining battery.
What are you connecting to - 15A / 20A / 30A / 50A shore power.
What you're connected to will determine what your company can use while staying in the trailer. For example, if they can use the Air Conditioner or not.

Good Luck.

I guess it depends on if you want your company to see or not...

The battery provides power for the lights. If you don't have the battery connected, the converter is going to run all the time...and that could get annoying if it has a fan. Also, if they're using the refrigerator, it requires a constant 12 volt connection to run the electronics.

I see no downside to not leaving the battery connected. Am I missing something ?

The lights won't work if 12VDC is disconnected. TV will but not lights as they are 12VDC.

Having the battery connected or not will not change what can be turned on or off. If you are plugged in to shore power as you have said, it goes directly to the Power Center that has the 120Vac breakers and 12Vdc fuses. The power center powers the converter applying 12Vdc to the 12 volt bus (All of the 12v fuses). It makes no difference if you have a battery connected or not. Everything will work in your 317RLOK. Only the A/C would be questionable. Should have a 30A connection to run 1 A/C unit.

Don,

This is an Eagle 5er and it has a power center. It does not need a battery to run lights when plugged in to shore power.

I was thinking the 5er worked the same as my MH. If I set the battery disconnect switch to OFF, it secures 12VDC to almost everything except the levelers. If I took the battery out and was plugged into shore power, everything 12VDC would work providing I had my battery disconnect switch ON.
