It does not turn off everything. Trying to remember what ours turned off when we have the Flagstaff 25KS. Either way I thought it was dumb and jumpered the switch out so it did not cut off anything.

I always install a true battery cut off switch at the battery kills everything.

You have to install another cutoff at the battery(s).

My new one kills everything, but the last trailer didn't. They've moved the location of the cutoff in the last year or two to right behind the battery. Before, it was a pull switch inside. My tongue jack and stabilizers were wired in front of the switch and were live all the time.
