Battery Disconnect Switch on Sanibel

We have a 2015 Sanibel model 3551. What is the proper position for the battery disconnect pull switch to be in when hooked up to park power? There is no marking in the control panel where the switch is located as to on or off positions.

Look at the tv/radio area. In my unit the radio will not operate if the disconnect switch is turned off. Also the 12 volt lights won't work.

In mine, the Lippert hydraulic system (levelers & slides) will still work but, all other 12v systems are shut off.
