Storing

I’m going to be gone for a month and leaving my 13’ Scamp. Should I un plug it ie the frig etc. What about battery? Thunderstorms do occur here occasionally.

I'd disconnect the battery to prevent discharge, and open the refrigerator door to prevent mold. You should be OK if it stays above freezing. If not you will need to winterize.

yeah, any time the fridge is off, it should be emptied and cleaned out, and the door should be held open with a spacer block or something. the big RMD8555 fridge/freezer in my E21 came with a plastic spacer that will hold both doors open an inch for air.

I just place an oven mitt in the door to prevent it from closing.

the tiny fridge in our Casita 16, if you put the latch in closed position before closing the door, it left a 1/2" gap to ventilate...

I would put a container or 2 of damp rid in a plastic tub in the middle of the trailer since you cant leave anything open for ventilation because of thunderstorms.
