Battery disconnect switch

I just purchased a new 2016 rockwood 2703ws and for the life of me I cannot locate the battery disconnect switch. It use to be in the bathroom closet but was either relocated or wasn't installed at the factory. Any ideas where they could have moved it?

Didn't they show you where it was, during the PDI?
Should have been something that should have covered during it.
Or it's another example of a poor PDI by a dealer.

Do you for sure have one? On many RV's this is an added option or a customer DYI project?

My fault for not asking during the PDI, I assumed it was in the bathroom. The docs said it was standard equipment but that was for the 2015 model not the 2016 that I ended up with. Worst case I install one myself.

You shouldn't have to ask about that, the dealer should have made sure you were shown it.
That's a basic feature of the trailer that should have been gone over.

Our 2015 Rockwood has it behind the coupler in front of and under the lp tanks. It's a plastic key.

Is this a fifth wheel? If so, it's probably located against the wall next to or just above the battery.

Checked under the propane tanks and found it mounted to the a-frame. Wish they would have told me during the PDI. All is well now!

My 2014 model battery switch is located in our bathroom behind the door about 8" above the floor.
