I know we used to do that with mobile phones and the like back in the day.
I've been told by a solar guy, that going down to 50% (no lower) is actually GOOD for the batteries once in awhile.

Also, your batts should be using at least SOME water here and there. If no water ever need be added, the batts are not working hard enough and will fail prematurely.

Boowho??

I never turn the switch off. Residential fridge runs on it and microwave as well ( the Magnum 2000 watt model) This thread forced me to read the manual, and sure enough, the MS2012 has an auto standby mode. So the inverter is on, it will go into standby mode automatically when you run the generator or shore power. Ditto the charger. Mostly brainless operation, which is a good fit.
