X2. Like fonzie suggested I do check the battery water every month. Top off when necessary with distilled water. Never had a problem.

I leave mine plugged into the 30 AMP, sure is nice to retreat into the camper for peace and quiet.


I have my A/C off and the roof vents open, even setting the thermostat at 85 the A/C runs more than I would like it to.

Being I am no expert in this field, I can only give you my experience. I have 4 Lifeline GPL6ct batteries coupled with 800 watts of solar power with a Zantrex 2000 watt inverter on my Georgetown 351 DS. I leave mine plugged in while in home port. I usually about once per month throw the breaker and run on battery power alone until the batteries fall to about 70-75%. This sometimes takes several days, depending on the sunshine on those particular days. I have experienced no ill effects on any of the systems. I have did this since buying the MH in 2014.

Only time mine is unplugged is when we are on the road or someone comes visit the D&D Campground and I let them use the outlet.

With that much solar...

Why plug in at all?
Just curious.
