Battery stuff

I am living in my 5th wheel full time and my battery backup will be needing replaced. However, I do not intend to use the unit for any travel and have a generator for backup and would like to circumvent the battery circuit without having to replace the batteries. The unit has the usual converter to switch to battery upon lose of power from hookup. Has anyone tried or experienced this alteration?

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks

It depends on the converter. Some require a battery in the circuit and some do not. For example the Manetek/Parallax 6300 series do require a battery while the 7300 series does not.
