Quick question from a new owner of a flagstaff 27 rlws.
The battery disconnect in the bathroom wall. Is the battery disconnected with the switch pulled out or pushed in? There is no mention in the owners manual.
When I picked up the camper it was pulled out.
Between trips I keep it plugged into 110 volt power so I think I should disconnect during the long periods between trips. Is this the right thing to do?
I appreciate any advice or knowledge from the forum.

I think pushed in is disconnected. But hopefully someone else comes along and can verify.

IMO, your converter's charger is usually smart enough to not overcharge the battery. I'd leave it connected and periodically check the water levels in it.

Unplug from shore power, then turn a light on.
If it goes out when you pull or push disconnect I think then you'll know the answer.

I leave my camper plugged in 24/7 365

Actually, I could be wrong, Weezer said this in a different thread:
