Logan, you have an pop-up type trailer. I have a 5th wheel trailer. Mine did not come with a disconnect; I had to install it. It is the red dial switch in the picture.

Having said that, you may not have a disconnect as standard equipment.

They are not only a good idea; they are also easy to install.
If you search the forum for battery disconnects you will find many different ways to implement this simple, but in my opinion important mod.

So am I understanding it right that with a disconnect mod, all you have to do is flip a switch to disconnect battery power to the camper...in lieu of removing the (+) and (-) connectors?
