That's why I rewired my trailer so that it would be off in store and on in use. I only have the switch in store when the trailer is in storage and then I turn the propane off.

Great Advice

Thanks again. I can see where it would be easy to overlook a propane detector cut-off switch when using the trailer. One option is to not install a cut-off switch and use my new 100W solar panel to charge the AS batteries at it's storage site when needed. Then when I take the batteries out for winter storage, I keep them on my float charger at home.

I solved the problem several years ago with solar on both trailers. Batteries stay up, don't need water often. With two trailers, one or the other may be in storage for extended periods. Never a worry or a problem.
I think that, in the end, solar is by far the best way to keep your batteries up in outdoor storage.
