Breakaway Battery

Obviously our walk-thru was not as thorough as one would have hoped. After reading the "general" owners manual, seems like we have a breakaway battery located somewhere that needs to be brought indoors for the winter.

So, now that it's below freezing and we have to find it, any idea where we should look?

A separate battery? Usually the breakaway is powered by the main battery, but things do change.

The "breakaway" switch is powered by the camper's main battery.

Thanks for the info. We keep finding items that we didn't know existed, and the "General Owner's Manual" raised questions.

There is lots more here. If you find you need a manual or a question answered; just ask via a new thread.

Better yet; do a search using the search function and I would bet my last hot dog you will find what you need.
