This is my first travel trailer and we are having some issues with our trailer. It seems the batteries are draining in about a week when stored. The lights and water pump might work but the slide does not. Do you install a battery disconnect or just pull the batteries.
I am thinking of making a bike rack to go in between the bunks. Anyone tried that?

Thanks Jason

Carbon Monoxide sensor uses juice and can slowly kill it. You can disconnect the battery. We keep ours hooked up to shore power when it's in the driveway.

I put in a battery disconnect. My battery would drain in about two month when stored in the back 40. would here a beeping noise meaning low battery so that is why I did that.

If you can get the adaptors for your shore power cord so you can plug it into an extension and wall outlet, the battery will stay charged.

I installed an RV 30 AMP circuit and plug my unit in, it is so nice to be in it in the summer and run the A/C.
