That will certainly do the trick. I put a battery disconnect switch on mine. It's very helpful when dry camping to be assured that every 12V draw off when amp hours are at a premium.

Because the sales people don't know it either. Or if they do its like TV salespeople, they feel like the details of the tow package just get in the way of showing you the living room features like the cup holders and entertainment center.

I've had more than one salesman (RV and auto) who told me things that were flat wrong or insisted on correcting me when the right answer was apparent on sight to someone who knew the vehicle. The sales guys get better commissions from selling bigger rigs, so the blame for the lack of interest in popups is as much on the dealer.

The PDI guy probably does know it but is on a time clock so sticks to the basics not the details.

Thankfully we have each other, here.
