We store the TT in a storage lot. I keep the roof vents open and have aluminum bubble wrap on the windows to help keep the heat out. No power and the batteries turned off. I prop the inside fridge open so that air can get into it. No cover in the summer time since we use it often.

Thanks everyone. I was just worried that I would hurt something leaving it hot boxed like that. Lucille is parked behind the house and about 75' from power. I plug it into the 20A circuit in the garage with the 25' regular cord and then another 50' 12gauge extension cord. I am ok running the fridge but I don't want to ruin the AC by running it on to low of amps. It is the smaller AC but still don't want to chance it.

Thanks for all the input👍🏻

We are seasonal down by the beach, but I pull it home each fall (back in the spring). We use it like a spare room for he holidays. I chock, block and level the camper, hook up the power, winterize the water and leave the electric plugged in for the duration. I turn off the fridge and unplug anything that draws amps even when turned off. We run the propane or electric heat only when someone is in the trailer. We pull the bump outs in if there's any snow in the forecast, and leave them in/trailer closed up as long as there's snow pack.

No room at home. Keep our Puma at a storage facility. #1 on list for the next covered spot. Right now we have ours in the yard. Nothing is on but we keep the battery connected during camping season. In the fall we remove the battery and take it home and put it on a trickle charger. The day before we plan to camp we bring her home and park on the street. Plug her into 120VAC. Start up the fridge. After a couple hours we start to bring our groceries in. Keep her plugged in overnight. Next day we disconnect shore power and the fridge switches over to LP til we get to the campsite and we hook back up to 120.

Outside next to the garage.

Winter time: Damp rid, winterized so no heat battery disconnected with a Battery Tender hooked to it.

Between Memorial Day and Labor day plugged in and ready to roll.

We keep ours plugged in at home parked on a recycled asphalt pad. I leave food and drinks onboard during camping season, restocking items used when we get home from a trip. Always ready to roll. Just have to add the last few things from the fridge and breadbox from the house. We've done it this way for years and never had any problems. I can always be ready to roll on a half hours notice.

Vent covers are a great thing,,, they allow you to leave vents open !!!

We do the exact same thing.
