I have a hunch that the disconnect switch only turns off the inverter. Turn off the disconnect and see if the fridge light goes out.

Turn off the disconnect and check the fridge light. If the fridge light is not on then the disconnect is just for the inverter and not the whole trailer.

Should the fridge light be on? I'm not plugged in.

Yes it's running on the battery.

Ok, I'll check it out.
Thanks for the quick response.

If I determine the disconnect switch is for the inverter only, is this normal? I was under the impression that the disconnect switch turns off all 12 volt applications.

If it is I'd add another for other battery.

I discovered it goes to the inverter, just as you mentioned. Thanks. i'm definitely going to install a disconnect switch to the other battery. Thanks again.
