Plugged in. It's where I go when I need a "Personal Vacation" from the hectic pace of having 5 kiddos!

Mine is not plugged in because I do not yet have a 30 amp receptacle for it.
I will plug it in today because it is sinking into the water logged ground so I need to raise it up before it gets to low.
I could run a 120 cord and leave it plugged in but I do not want the plug and adapter to get wet laying on the ground.

Plug it in until I winterize. Then, remove the battery, keep the fridge propped, and unplug it for the winter.

Mine is in the yard and has a cover on it. I keep it plugged in and run a small squirrel type fan to keep air moving through the camper.

plugged in 90% of the time. Like others have said, always some type of project to do in there. Can run the AC to work and clean in there comfortably. Turn both fridges on day or two before we go camping to load.

Ours is in storage so disconnect for me. When I had a smaller unit and stored it at home I did keep it plugged in. It did have an adverse effect on the battery but it sure was nice to have such a big "man cave" available when desired. At least the newer RV in storage is close to my work. I frequently visit, and weather permitting, eat lunch a take and quick power nap.
