Storing Bambi 22FB

Hey all. Storing our beloved new Bambi 22FB for the winter tomorrow. It will be inside but without shore power. I will therefore remove the batteries. Questions:

-If I remove the batteries before leaving home for the storage facility, will the trailer exterior lights and power jack function when hooked up to the TV? Or should I just remove them when parked for the winter at the facility?

-Aside from putting the battery disconnect to store, is there anything I need to do prior to disconnecting? Can I leave the solar panels plugged into the controller?

Thanks in advance for the info.

You cannot legally tow without the battery installed, as it disconnects the break away brakes...those require onboard batteries. Your jack will also not work.

I’d just disconnect one lead on the battery and leave it in. Then reconnect to tow.

Thanks. I ended up leaving the batteries in until I stored the AS at the facility. There, I took five minutes to detach them and replace the cover. The batteries are now in my garage elevated and plugged in to a Noco battery charger/maintainer.
