Hello, I just purchased a 2016 Rockwood 2905ws. We had a 2014 Vibe 308bhs before the Rockwood. I really like the Rockwood and can see how much better built it is compared to our old Vibe (my opinion of course and you know what they say about opinions!). My question is when I have the unit parked here at the house. I had a 30amp plug put on the side of my detached garage where the trailer is parked and plan on keeping it plugged in at all times. The Rockwood has an outdoor kitchen and the fridge is always on when I'm plugged in. There isn't a switch on the inside of the fridge to turn it off and since its bolted down I cant unplug it from behind. The fridge on the inside I can shut off of course, but I'm concerned with the outside fridge running all the time especially in a closed up area and with our Texas heat!
Options on fridge...
Don't leave trailer plugged in all the time
Unbolt and unplug fridge
Unbolt and add a strap of some sort for going down the road instead of having it bolted down
Don't worry about it and move on
I also have questions about the battery. Ive read keeping a unit plugged in all the time will cook the battery. Rockwoods come with a battery disconnect (Vibe... um no) and I was planning on just letting the battery charge for a day or two and then disconnecting the battery. Then a day or two before we head out camping reconnect the battery so it can charge. We only go camping one to two weekends a month. So I guess this could be managed as long as I remember.

Waiting on gravel... this is where it will be parked.
