Battery disconnect

We have a new 2014 shasta breeze/flyte 255rs. I cannot find the battery disconnect? Does it have one? If it's left to simply sit with batteries in it, won't they slowly drain? How do i mitigate this, short of disconnecting the batteries all the time.

You may not have one, many models don't. You can add one in. Short of that you can plug into shore power if its accessible, that will keep system charged, or disconnect at the battery terminal.

Our Shasta Oasis didn't come with one. I had one installed.

don't think any of the Shastas come with a factory battery disconnect switch.

maybe some of their 5th wheels do.
