Main breaker

Should I shut off the main breaker if I am not using the trailer for a few weeks.

Even with the breaker off there will still be drains on the battery. The better solution is to disconnect the battery.

Are you connected to 120 volt AC shore power?

If not, then it's irrelevant.

You may want to disconnect the battery however, as it can run down from the small 12 volt DC draws on it from the LP detector and such.
