When sitting idle, there are small drains on the battery (radio power, CO detectors, propane detectors, etc) that will leach away at your battery until it dies. For instance, my Sabre will deplete my battery within a week without disconnecting it.
Deep cycle batteries lives get shortened the more they're fully discharged.
So, the battery disconnect switch does just that - it disconnects it so that the system doesn't draw it down when you're not using the camper.
