I don't understand the Battery Disconnect

Just bought a 2014 Georgetown MH. It has a battery disconnect switch. What I don't understand is how to tell if it's on or off? It doesn't say on or off and when you push on it, it doesn't stay in one position or another, it just toggles.

There is an orange light on this switch and it doesn't go off at all. So what am I supposed to do?

I was told to turn the Battery Disconnect on when storing MH for a long time. It is currently off I'm assuming because I can power things even when not plugged into shore power and just running generator.

Can someone explain this? Thanks!!

Unplug from shore power and leave gennie off.

Then move battery disconnect to one position and see if lights work.
If they do then switch the disconnect the other way and they should go off.

If not using camper for more than a few days disconnect should be disengaged if not plugged in.
