Owner Manual Forester 3051S

Please bear with us. We have a 2013 Forester 3051S and it has been in storage since last November. We checked it every month to make sure it started, but when we went to pick it up, all batteries were dead. We are trying to figure out what we may have left on to cause all batteries to drain, but can't figure out what some of the switches are. Is there an owner's manual specific to this model so we can at least label them or a schematic of the dials and switches?

no such thing, only the generic manual. very few RV manufacturers provide a model-specific owner's manual. they don't even provide one that specific to the type of RV, let alone one that's specific to a certain model.

Do you turn off the battery disconnect switch located in the stairwell? That removes power from things like the CO/Propane detector that would otherwise kill a battery. During the winter, I started mine (engine and generator) and ran until warmed up. I had no trouble come spring with getting things going.
