2013 Solera

The dial just inside the door by the steps for electrical power. It has on and off on the dial you can turn it to. Could someone explain how and when to use it correctly. Someone said it was to be able to remove the batteries? Help Please

It's a battery disconnect that allows you to isolate the batteries from any parasitic loads (LP detector, smoke detectors, radio, etc.). If you don't "disconnect" the batteries, your Solera will likely run your battery down in a matter of a week or two if not plugged into shore power.

So are you saying anytime I'm not using the unit and not plugged in it should be in the off position?

Yes. If the unit isn't plugged into a power source and you aren't using it- that switch should be off.

A word of caution about having your 12 volt cut off. If you are running your refrigerator on gas, it won't work with the 12volt turned off because the controls for the fridge work off 12 volts...

Good call and point.
