Shore Power

Does it hurt anything to leave your trailer on shore power while parked at the house?

Most converters, including my WCCO brand, have 3 different charge levels. High, medium, and maintainer.
If the batteries are fully charged, the converter will only "top off" the batteries. Still a good idea to check the water level periodically.

A few years back, there was instances reported of fire starting in the fridge area of campers that were plugged in and unattended. In fact I seen a video of one being consumed in flames.

Myself, the unit isn't plugged in unless we plan to stock, and use it.

I am in Lloyds camp. We use a battery tender which also controls sulfation. Have also installed battery disconnect to eliminate 12 volt power draw. I check water levels often.
