I have a mobile system that is intermittently used. I am using the exercise function of the outback to keep the genset happy during storage. I also have the AC bypass installed, so I can pull grid when it is available. My generator is an Onan 5500.
I can store the setup with the genset just loaded by the outback or I can turn the bypass on and provide an additional outlet-added load.
Is one of these a better practice than the other?

Keep the OutBack in the loop -- you can always connect a load to the OutBack's outputs if you need more.
