...Even a battery stays by itself alone still has a minor internal current which will drain battery(drop it's voltage) if sitting too long without use/recharge. This is cause by INTERNAL RESISTANCE of battery itself. The phenomenom is insignificant but it exists and shows the effect versus time...

In the fall, when you are putting the trailer away, take the battery out of the break away controller and put it on a multi stage charger. Put it back in spring. Problem solved.

Only if the circuit is completed through something... not an open (off) switch.

Battery self-discharge is a separate issue, addressed above.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
