Mine stays plugged in 24/7 as well when I`m at home. My unit will be 7 yrs old in September and it still has the original group 24 Interstate battery so that is a testament to the battery tending capability of these new smart chargers.

I disconnect my battery and never have mine plugged in because I don't have a plug in where I store it

I usually let mine sit for a week or two unplugged, then plug in for a week and let it charge/desulfate, etc. I have twin 6V with an upgraded smart charger that treats the batteries very well. I wouldn't hesitate to leave mine plugged in all the time if I had to. In the winter, the batteries come off the trailer and get maintained by a Battery Tender.

I remove the battery and take it home for 2 reasons. I have had propane tanks swapped ie a full one removed and an empty put in it's place... not imagining because they were different colors... And I use the battery for my winch that launches the large model gliders I fly. When not in use the battery is in the garage floor on a smart tender.

I leave mine plugged in at home. The fridge give me somewhere to store excess drinks bought in bulk.
My dealer / long time sales guy said keeping the fridge running would make it last longer. Don't know if that's true but like I said, I've got extra cold storage for things that don't need to be deep freezed.
