I haven't bothered running an always +12V line yet.

But I have been leaving my trailer on in the "Use" position. And it's working out just fine.

Solar is such a game changer in regards to parasitic draw. At least for someone that stores their AS out in the open.

Here's my latest plan. "Use" mode will boil off the batteries if you leave it plugged in. "Store" will save the batteries, but the parasitic draws will eventually drain the batteries.
I'm leaving mine in "store", but placing a NoCo Genius 3.5 amp charger on the batteries, run to the 120v. AC.
Eventually, I'll put a battery disconnect on the battery box (which seems to have plenty of room to route cables.)

Great, but that doesn't answer the issue at hand here which is the head unit standby power.

With a 3.5amp charger, it might just be sufficient to leave the trailer in use, keeping the headunit powered with other parasitic loads, and batts topped off.
