We are full-timers and have a 2008 GT 350ts. We are in Arizona for the winter and my question is, can I put the battery disconnect in the disconnect position while we are here. I am afraid that the charger will over charge the house batteries while we're here. When I put the switch in disconnect, all the 12 volt stuff still works. Also will the charger back off to a trickle once the batteries are charged if I put it back to connect?
With the battery disconnect off you are getting 12 volt DC to lights, refrigerator control, Propane Detector from the charger.
Your batteries will not charge at all and will slowly drain.
Now if you leave the battery disconnect on it will charge the batteries and depending on the model charger you have it may drop to a trickle charge when full.
I have a multi stage charger that charges and drops to trickle over time. It also exercises batteries so they do not build up calcification on plates.
Here is a picture of my charger.
