Hello All - Question

Hello Everyone,

I just got my Vegas 2019 25.1 a few months ago. I live in Pensacola (Pace) and have used it only a couple of times. I did have to get some warranty work done on the fridge....air block or so they told me. I love this thing and hope to get more traveling soon. I have a couple of questions to all of the experts as I am a bit confused.
1) Do I need to get a disconnect to open the negative when I store it - And if I do this do I leave shore power disconnected?
Any other things I need to do if I am letting this thing sit for a few months...Getting shoulder replacement so will be awhile.

Thank you all in advance.

Brett Imlah

If shore power is available, it is best to leave it plugged in with the power on. I leave my vent fan on low all year long to avoid condensation. If there is no shore power then, yes, disconnect the batteries, but remember this will clear all the "learning" in the radios and driver line computers.

If you keep it plugged into shore power: just keep an eye on your battery water levels.
(And keep the Use/Store switch set in the "Use" position.)
By the way: Welcome to the forum!

Hi Brett. Others have provided the answers to your electrical questions. I can add that I had my right shoulder done on May 6 2017 and took the family on a long weekend trip over the Memorial Day weekend. Follow the Physical Therapy exercises as directed at home and you may be surprised at how fast you can get back into a normal routine.
