Is it ok to leave my 32BH plugged in to an extension cord at home? I only ask so I can open the slides and keep the battery charged, but I have heard that this can damage the battery if the tt isn't equipped with some type of a smart charging system. Not sure if mine has that or not.
I leave mine plugged in but not with an extension cord. I installed a battery disconnect and use that to keep the batteries from discharging. My concern was depleting the acid in the battery from too much charging all the time. If you do use an ext cord, use a good quality rated for at least 20 amps.

Most all newer converters have an automatic switch to lower the charge when your battery is full so it's fine to leave it plugged in all the time. You just want to check the water in your battery once a month or so. The only issue would be if your converter malfunctioned then it could damage the battery. Mine is plugged in all the time, although I had a 30amp plug installed at home.Edited by: Beamer5

I have the same model and per the manual of the inverter it is fine to plug in and does charge your battery, hope that helps. But using an extension cord is iffy, if you don't have the right gauge. Not an electrician just a home owner. I do leave my plugged in a few days before to get fridge cold.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

I also have a 30 amp plug that I installed on the side of the house to plug into. If you are going to plug in to a standard 15/20 amp outlet make sure you have a 12 gauge extension cord. This will safely handle the full load current of the outlet.
