Unhappy Location of battery disconnect

I just purchased the 2012 crusader 290 RLT. Does anyone know where I can find the battery and battery disconnect. The radio in the bedroom stay lit all the time. I want to disconnect the 12 volt power. Thanks.

If it is setup similar to the 320,you will find the battery in the very front compartment,the basement I believe they call it,facing the front of trailer,right hand side.Hope that helps. As far as a battery disconnect goes there is not one.I installed my own.Not that hard.

As already said, doubt you have one. I installed my disconnect on the front of battery box where it hangs down.... easy access.

The Crusader does not have a factory installed Battery Disconnect. It's not unusual for the dealer to install one, so I can't say for sure on your unit.

Generally, your batteries are dealer installed in the front storage compartment where we run all of the wiring along with a battery box, vent hose, and vent.

Hope this helps.

Amazon.

A simple on/off disconnect.





another for switching batteries or battery banks..



There are other models, too, that are not as weather proof but are fine for indoor placement. A little cheaper, too, but those above are under $30.

Bought mine at NAPA, but any auto parts store will have them for 20-25 bucks. I installed mine where you open the driver side door where my propane tank is. Just reach in flip the switch. Super easy to install, I can post pics if you want or need any help just hollar.
