I installed a cheap toggle switch from Radio Shack beside the bedroom radio so the light goes out.

Thank you Jtad. Could you post pics on the location of where you installed your disconnect switch to the batteries?

We were pleasantly surprised to find a battery disconnect in our new 2604. It's right below the refrigerator, although the battery is in the front. BL

after thinking about it I dont think I would want to buy from your dealer ! If he/they didnt even show you where your battery and or disconnect is Im affraid of the bad information if any you did get ! Not to mention if they failed to show you something as simple as the battery what else didnt you get info on !

Switch pics

Hey Joe here a couple of pics. You will need a switch and a batt cable. Just messure how far from the batt to where you are going to mount the switch and thats how long a cable you will need. Maybe get it just a little longer, better to be safe than sorry. Most auto parts stores will have these cables already pre made in differnt leanths. Just disconnect the ground side of the batt, run it to one side of the switch. Run your new cable from the other side of the switch to the ground side of the batt. Keep in mind I mounted my switch where I did because the original ground side batt cable would reach it without having to extend it. Hope that makes sense.

Thanks for the great pics jtad. I assume the multi wire cable on the left is the original negative battery lead and the single cable on the right is the new negative lead to the battery.

PS. what local are you with?

So are you saying you put the switch on the neg wire? Why is that, I would have thought you would want to put the switch on the positive side. Just curious
