This question has been asked 100 times

But I can't seem to find a good answer.

I just purchased a 2015 Coachmen Apex Nano 193BH. It comes with a WFCO WF-8735P inverter (I think it's called an inverter).

Anyway, I am storing the trailer at my house and have shore power (115V) available. My plan is to take the trailer out about once a month for weekend trips.

In what electrical configuration should I have the trailer during the 30 days it's not being used?

A) Connected to shore power, batteries connected.
B) Disconnect from shore power, battery negative terminals removed.
C) Other??

During winter months I plan to run a dehumidifier and small electric heater (Pacific NW so winters not too cold). Obviously during these times I will need to go with option A.

Thanks! Sorry for the long and tangled question!

C. Plugged in to shore power and battery/ies disconnected.

Reconnect and run a recharge cycle once a month.. a couple of days before a trip.. or place your battery/ies on a battery tender.

It's a CONVERTER, not an inverter.
An inverter would be an aftermarket install.
