If you're plugged into shore power it will charge you're batteries. You don't have to worry about draining them.

Brian thank you for your reply so as long as I'm plugged into shore power the battery that powers my engine will be charged.
Thanks

I am not so sure about that. It depends on the model year (Newer the better chance) The stereo is powered by the Engine starting Battery on some Model years (Not charged via converter as I understand it) Newer model years, The dash stereo is powered by the house batteries that are charged by the converter (Via shore power). Mr. Brian Clemens can confirm

There is an Emergency start switch on the driver's seat base that connects the house batteries to the start battery should you find yourself "Drained"

On my 2012, FR added a small circuit behind the radio. When engine (key) is on, power is from chassis battery. When engine is off, power is from house battery. However, like others have said, when on shore power, both house and chassis batteries are charged, so there is no chance of running battery down with radio.

If it's plugged in you are good to go do whatever you want you are being charged
