Battery Disconnect

When disconnecting the batteries in my DX3 for storage:

I flip the disconnect by the drivers seat (which I assume takes care of the chassis batteries)

Then when I flip the switch in the battery compartment, nothing seems to turn off. I usually end up hitting the coach switch by the door also, but even then the fridge seems to hum along for another couple (10-15?) minutes. I noticed this weekend the stairs still worked after a good couple of hours.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there supposed to be a delay? Is there yet another switch hidden somewhere?

I knew I had seen something similar! Hence the resurrection of the other thread.

Thanks for linking...

Ahhh ok so I was still plugged in when I flipped the disconnects. That's probably what did it?

Sorry, I thought you were talking about things still working even after you hit the disconnect. I guess if you were still plugged in, that would do it too.

I was gonna say ... seemed pretty applicable to me Aside from the double alternator I guess.

I'll definitely have to do some more investigating when I get time. But that's a good start for sure.
