Shore Power Effect on Aux Batteries

My Sunseeker 2300 came with a WFCO Ultra III WF-8900 series three-stage switching converter that includes a "float mode" 13.2v trickle charge. Is it ok to leave the coach on shore power for extended periods (I have a 30 amp outlet)? How often should I check the aux batteries?

MIne stays plugged in all the time. You should check them about once a month and top them up if needed. Mine only needs water about twice a year.

With a 3 stage converter you can safely leave it plugged in all the time. That will keep tha batteries warm and fully charged so they don't freeze.

X2 check monthly for water level.
