Battery Shut Off Switch

Just picked up our new Signature 8328BS TT, anyone know where my battery shut off switch might be?
Iíve read over the ďgenericĒ owners manual (lol) not much help!
My previous unit Ď14 8289WS had it up front in the centre compartment, but no such luck on this one.

Look around the battery compartment. Maybe on the ceiling.

Might not have one. My 5th wheel came without one. I just simply pull the negative off my battery when I don't want parasitic draw.

Mine is mounted on the frame, underneath the left propane tank.

Why didn't the dealer show it to you on your PDI?

Not sure why they didnít. I just call them (the dealer) I I got bounced from sales to service, they had no idea!
They didnít even remember who I was from just yesterday.

Classic. Apparently a large optional/recreational purchase doesn't get you far these days.

Use common sense. Trace the positive (RED) battery wire from the battery post and it "should" connect to the switch, but nothing is done correctly in the rv trade. On my previous TT, it went to a switch that was located inside the "V" portion of the A frame well behind the hitch head under the propane tanks.

If you have a kill switch in your trailer it is possible the manufacturer moved it to a different location, who knows - keep looking.

It looks like your dealer is "some piece of work" and you may run into some frustrating issues if you ever need (warranty) service, we ran into this with a dealership near Edmonton a few years ago and thanks to FR were directed to a different service center that took care of us, be prepared.

Mine is attached to the frame that holds the propane tanks. It is well hidden by the cover over the tanks.
