Can I keep my travel trailer plugged in all the time?

ANSWER Greetings Coy thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

Yes, you can keep your Travel Trailer plugged in all of the time. One of the things you need to monitor is the house batteries for the trailer. Since the house batteries will be receiving a constant charge, you need to monitor the electrolyte levels in the house batteries. You should check the electrolyte levels on your batteries at least once a month to make sure that they are not low or have gone dry.

If the electrolytes on the batteries are low you need to top them off with distilled water. If you do not monitor and top off your batteries, there is a chance that they can get damaged.

Our motorhome is always plugged into electric even when we are not using it. Another thing you should check is to make sure that none of your 120 volt appliances are on, such as fridge, water heater, etc.

Please read the answers I gave to the questions below to learn more about keeping your RV plugged in all of the time.
