Battery Switch

We just bought a new 30' 2017 FR3. There's a Battery Control Switch ( for connecting and disconnecting the coach batteries?) What position should the switch be in and when ?

It depends on if you want the battery connected or disconnected.

Connected means all the loads on house house battery will be live. Lights,furnace,fridge etc.

Disconnected isolates the battery. Use this for storage or long periods of non use so the house battery will not discharge as quickly.

I have my coach plugged in over the winter with an electric heater going to help keep the interior warm. Since it is plugged in it charges the house battery when it is cold outside. Not sure how much it helps but if the battery gets discharged when stored it could freeze. It was -4 f here two weeks ago.
