Battery disconnect

Hi all, I just bought a 2013 8528 IKWS and am wondering about the battery disconnect switch. While hooked to shore power should the push/pull switch be out or in? When driving down the hiway should it be out or in? The sales lady kind of touched on it however it didn't take me long to forget!

Battery should always be on unless your storing trailer for a period of time...

Bowmab,
If this is the disconnect on newer Rockwoods and Flagstaffs than push in to disconnect and pull out for power. I don't have one of the factory disconnects, but that's what I understand.

When hooked to shore power, you leave it connected so the converter can charge the battery.

Also leave it connected on the road.
