Location of Battery Disconnect 2017 Forester

I recently bought a 2017 Forest River Forester 2401R on a Mercedes chassis. During the orientation walk-through, the technician failed to show me where the house battery disconnect is located. He also failed to show me where the automatic generator transfer switch is located and how to use it. Any info would be appreciated.....

On my 2015 2401R the battery disconnect is located on the cabinet panel left side as you enter the coach. It's a rotary switch. Important to remember that it does not disconnect all 12v devices - CO/propane sensor, slides (maybe), jacks (maybe). Don't remember for sure, over a year ago that I tested. Suggest that you "disconnect" and try everything 12v and see what works. The transfer switch is automatic, nothing for you to do. It monitors incoming Ac, and if not present, cuts thru the generator Ac output if the Genny is running.

Yep, it is right there under my nose. Thanks for that. I thought I read somewhere that you can program the automatic transfer switch to not turn the genny on during quiet hours....
