keeping battery charged after winterizing

Hey all, forgive me if I missed this covered elsewhere.
I currently have our 22' Surveyor Sport winterized in the driveway. I have all the breakers turned off, but keep the battery connected in case I need to turn on lights inside and whatnot. I have the adapter on the power cable to plug it into a standard 110 outlet. Ive been simply plugging it in for a day or two every few weeks. Heres my question...
Do I need to turn any breakers on to use the built-in battery charger on the converter, or can I leave all the breakers off? I havent been using any lights or anything lately, but I did use the tongue jack to relevel and motorized awning to clean, and dont want a dead battery this spring! Thanks ya'll!

Just leave it plugged in leave but leave converter breaker on.
On board charger will keep battery charged
