Avenger battery switch?

Just picked up the avenger after two months and I could just legitimately have a dead battery but Imbwondeting if there is a battery switch I am not aware of? It is deader than a door nail. Had to plug it in to use even a light after a long drive. I've owned it less than a year and I'm not aware of one. It is a 2014 Primetime Avenger 28 bhsThanks!

Check in the docking center for a battery disconnect knob

By docking center, do you mean the septic pump out and flush compartment? If so, I don't have one.

Where your water hookup is, your cable outlet, outside shower etc is located - all in one spot on some models...

If you don't find a battery switch (& I doubt you have one), the fact that lights worked once you plugged it in leaves me to believe there is none. If left unplugged for any length of time (3 or 4 weeks and longer), the battery will go dead due to parasitic draws (ie; carbon monoxide detector, digital thermostat etc.).

When I stored our TT I used to disconnect the positive battery terminal and if winter storage, I removed the battery and kept it in the garage on a trickle charger.

I put one of these on the battery terminal. I disconnect the battery whenever i am not using the camper, otherwise it will drain within the week.
