30 amp breaker, turn off?

Who out there turns off their 30 Amp breaker prior to plugging into shore power?

I do. Figure it can't hurt. Also turn it off before un-plugging..

We've only used our TT 7 times but never have. Part of my checklist is to make sure everything is turned off before we break camp or setup anyway. About the only thing I can think of that is automatic is the microwave, radio (both or off of course) and inverter..

I turn it off before plugging in, but not when I unplug.

I always turn it off before inserting or removing the plug. I don't believe that it's GFI protected, so it's a simple safety measure to help protect you, I've been told that there's no reason to turn it off, but the same principal applies, there's no reason not to (as far as I know)

I turn it off while both plugging and unplugging.

You know, I wonder if he means the breaker in the coach. I turn off the one on the pedestal when plugging in or out, but not in the coach.
