Battery question on dry storing a 2015 xlite.

When I picked up my TT last week I forgot to ask my tech about dry storing (un plugged) my TT. Anyways, I used it last weekend and last night I was showing it to a friend and the battery is now dead. I guess I need to install a main battery disconnect. I am kind of surprised it didn't come with one, but oh well. I would put a trickle charger on it, but where I park it I would have to run a long extension chord.

I had the same issue when I first got my TT. After having a disconnect switch installed the battery stays charged.

I called the dealer and they said if I am going to store it for more than one or two days un plugged that I can flip the main breaker to off, and it will supposedly do the same as a main battery disconnect. I don't really trust that so I will be installing a battery disconnect on the battery. However for now it's plugged in to maintain the battery.

Rightfully so. Your dealer should stick to selling shoes.

Whenever I park my 21RBS in the storage yard, I just disconnect the battery. No problems as of yet...
