Plugging in during off season?

Hi everyone. My question is should I plug the trailer in during the off season? Or is it not necessary? Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Werty

I keep mine pluged in and it keeps the battery up and I also have a dehumidifier running 24/7 and it takes out 1 quart of water every 10 days.

I actually take the batteries out during the winter. Store them in my basement. As far as humidity we basically have none here in the mountains. Very dry climate. Thanks for your response.

X2 on Tunce's leaving it plugged in. TT sits in the driveway at the house plugged in all winter. Stays completely charged.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Should I leave it plugged in even though I remove the batteries?

I use a Christmas light timer to turn power cord on 1 hour per day, seems to work, and could be adjusted for more or less.

I pulled my Battery but remain plugged into shore power. Flipped off all the unused breakers but leave the one for the GFI outlet on so I can run a electronic mouse deterrent. Every now and then when I open it up to check on things, I flip on another breaker so I can turn on the lights and do my inspections. It doesn't seem to be hurting anything by leaving it hooked up.

I keep mine plugged in during the off and on season. Still using the 5+ year old original group 24 interstate battery.

Ours is plugged in, slides open and heated. We watch a few movies or just go out and hang out.

This is the real reason to keep it pluged in, Terrific spot to " hang out" and in my case, have a beer.
