Batteries

I live in my 5th wheel full time. I am connected to 50amp. Should I disengage my batteries so they aren't always receiving a charge? Brand new unit and I don't want to destroy the life of the batteries.

No, it's a multiple stage charger. Just check the fluid levels if they aren't sealed a couple times a year.

X2, only add distilled water if you need to top them off.

Or get some AGM deep cycles and forever forget needing distilled water and corroded terminals.
