We're on shore power 24/7 when not on the road. For winter storage, I remove the battery and keep it inside the house where I check the water and run a slow charge monthly.

I keep ours plugged in 24/7 also and have done so for the past 30 years with no problems.

The only time we are not plugged in is when we are on the road. We do check the batteries on a regular basis.

Pluged in 24/7 unless we are the road. Check the batteries every 3 weeks or so. No problems.

We also keep ours plugged in all the time while at home. It keeps the batt charged, and no problems have occurred to date. As for the batt quick disconnect, we use one that mounts on one of the batt posts between cable and post, with a thumbscrew to disconnect. This is the same one that many antique car owners use while their baby is is storage for the winter months.
