Battery disconnect for 2007 rockwood 2501SS

Hi,my wife & I just purchased a used 2007 rockwood 2501SS. Everything works when it is hooked up to our truck or when it is plugged into our home. Nothing works if it is un-plugged. Does anyone know if there is a battery disconnect switch and if so...where it would be located?

factory battery disconnect switches were not around back in '07.
only way is that the previous owner installed one. if so, it's usually around the battery/tongue.

or you've got a bad battery or it's getting drained by the parasitic power draws, when not hooked.
without being hooked up to shore power, a battery can be dead in just a few days, without a disconnect switch.

There may be a fuse or circuit breaker by the battery in the positive lead that has blown or tripped. Follow the wire to see if there is one.

one of the most common causes, is that the resettable breaker/fuse has tripped.
it's located, along the A-frame, between the battery and the front of the trailer. it's silver with a black button to reset it.

this usually happens when the battery is reinstalled and the wires get crossed when it hooked back up.

Battery disconnect for 2007 rockwood 2501SS

I have been checking & re-checking the breakers & the fuses along with looking for a battery disconnect switch for the last day and a half to no avail. Then I sent out this SOS and you saved the day. The problem was the reset button on the box that was on the a-frame. It was all dirty...cleaned it off-found the teeny-tiny black button & pressed it & it re-set. Thank yo so much, you guys are amazingDoogerdee
