So wait, when does someone actually use this feature?
When in storage, my camper will deplete its battery in less than a week's time with the parasitic draws.
Remember, "When docked at home I'm on shore power.
" - that's not a luxury that we all have.
BUT- I've also kept the camper in a campground's storage for a week while we sandwiched 2 beach trips around a week at a beach house. By the end of that week, the camper battery was dead before I installed the battery disconnect.
And, before you think- "just disconnect the battery", depending on the camper, this may not be an easy task. My battery is in a box *under* my storage hatch's floor. That means moving stuff to get to it, unscrewing the box cover (awkward to get to), and then using tools to disconnect one of the wires.
