youtubeMany coaches have battery disconnect switches installed in them. However, these switches sometimes go unused or unnoticed by owners. In fact, when I was working as an RV Technician a few years ago, I was passed a phone call from a service customer. They had recently purchased a trailer and were unable to get any of the electrical systems in the trailer working after pulling into a campground. The lady mentioned she had checked the battery connections, the fuses, and everything else she could think of. I asked if she had a battery disconnect. She asked what that was, so I explained it to her. She put me on hold for a few minutes, came back to the phone, and told me that’s what the problem was. Battery disconnect switches are a great way to conserve your batteries while your RV is in storage, even for a short time.
