Hope you mounted the switch to also disconnect the parasitics IE: propane, CO2, carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. Also, some units have the outside stereo system "hard-wired" and draw constant power.
These detectors will draw down your batteries much faster than you think.
Sorry but not familiar with the Vlite unit.
That is an awfully small gauge wire coming off your switch. Sure hope that will NOT be the primary power input to your unit.

The cable "looks" actually heavier than the OEM cable that came on the TT. The little black and red wires you see going to the little white box to the right are the wires that power the booster to my Tire Minder. And yes, this is the very reason I am using the disconnect, to stop the parasitic draws.
