No, it won't hurt a thing. But I would turn the battery disconnect to OFF just the same as there is no reason not do, and turn the Tripplite to OFF as well. I ran two wires to the battery posts-one positive and negative, to the rear bumper, spliced in to one of the battery tender's push-together connectors, and simply plugged them in, and then plugged the battery tender into AC. I kept it this way 24/7 when stored.
No more worry. I just unplugged it when I was ready to roll. I used the same connector to plug in a portable solar as well on occasion to boost the solar charge while boon-docking.
