Battery Disconnect Switch

2013 Forrest River Flagstaff 831FLSS
Does someone know what the 12 volt disconnect disconnects? It is a push / pull knob above the control panel. I find some things that it disconnects but some things still have power. It appears that the front jack, slide outs still have power. Is this correct?

I'd imagine anything between the battery and the disconnect still has power. I wish they would install these a little closer to the battery.

I'll move this thread to Flagstaff for better coverage.

Thanks! I am new, dumb, and stupid with regard to forums. RVing for 30 years. Have not had any experience with this type disconnect. Remember the old manual disconnect that 80's Airstreams had and I used. It shut down everything except jack in front.

A year or two ago I couldn't even spell RV. Now we own one...

No such thing as a dumb question here. Learned everything I need to know right here on this forum. Now I'm what you call an expert!

I have a 2010 Flagstaff 27BHSS and would like to install a battery disconnect switch. It would be great not to have to fumble with the bottery box, strap, and terminals every time. Is there an aftermarket product out there that anyone would recommend?
