Breaker panel

2019 Rockwood 1980, do you secure all your breakers when you close up your pop up?

Does securing the breakers prevent you from charging your battery when plugged in?

By securing, do you mean turning them off? I've never turned the breakers off on any RV I've owned and I owned two Popups.
The roof/sink cabinet kill switch will cut 12v power to the interior.
By turning off the breakers, you will prevent the converter from keeping the battery charged if plugged into shore power.

i don't do anything to the breakers on my previous popup or my current hybrid. I do turn off or disconnect the battery when the camper is stored and not plugged into shore power.
