Battery cut off while charging?

I have a 2017 Forester 3171DS and have just placed it in a storage lot which provides 10 Amp electric to keep batteries charged. My question is this, do I need to keep the battery cut off switch in the "on" position to keep the batteries charged? Thanks.

With my previous MH the battery disconnect switch had to be switched on for the batteries to charge. Not sure if yours is the same - does your user manual give any specifics on this?

I am sure other owners of the MH will chip in soon.
