Ot sure about shore power if I would leave on or not.

If flying debris takes out a window, you can get a lot of water in the boat. But if you have enough house capacity for 24 hours pumping (not steady pumping but normal cycling), probably no big deal securing power. Still undecided for me though.

If in greater than 60 knot wind area, then I would take the cover off the bridge and bag and secure the ends. Tie them somehow so they don't flog the dash.

For every place you have a line that contacts something other than directly to a cleat.....CHAFE PROTECTION. Remember plastic tubing is thought to generate enough heat to weaken nylon. I think that is if the line can slide inside the tube instead of the tube sliding, so keep that in mind if using that style protection. If you think you have enough, think more.
