Another dumb question from a newbie!

Sorry about this to all you knowledgeable folks out there, but I need to know about the battery disconnect switch on my new 2015 Crusader. It is a simple Chrome push/pull switch, but I cannot find anywhere that tells me which is connected/disconnected? (In or Out???)
You'd think they'd put a label next to it to tell you - everything else in that control panel is labeled!!!

Yeah, it sucks, I just turn the light on above the switch then push/pull till light goes out then I know it's off, haven't labeled it yet tho.

In/Out That is the question - LOL

Yeh I figured that would be the easy way to find out and then make sure you remembered.
Only trouble is my battery is flat as a pancake, so I won't know until I've got a charge back in it to find out!

If it is dead flat, you may need to connect a dedicated battery charger.

The converter's have a "shorted battery" protection circuit that will prevent it from working (charging battery) if the battery voltage is below 10.5 - 11 volts.

If your battery is "toast," the converter may not power up.

You should also have them load checked.
Many auto stores will do a load test for free.
