    With solar panels shouldnít the batteries charge regardless of use/store?
    Is the use /store switch the button on the lower left as you walk in the unit?

    Really, you’re best off installing a master disconnect switch right after the batteries to make sure everything is truly off when in storage. The Use/Store Switch Airstream installs still leaves things like the propane detector on which will happily drain your batteries in a few weeks. Have a switch for the solar as well or else those panels will try to power things in the trailer even with no battery,

    The Use/Store switch is often a button by the door but don’t trust for long term storage.
