I just disconnect the positive cable at the battery. I have easy access the batteries on my TT, some do not & a switch would be much simpler once it is installed.

I have found it easier (and safer) to disconnect the negative. That way you only have to worry about your tools touching the positive terminal when working on the battery. If you are working on the positive terminal every bit of metal is the enemy if the ground is hooked up.

When removing the battery (for service or replacement) I always go negative first to remove and last to install for that reason.

Battery disconnect switch is on my to do list this year. Some good threads on here talking about it.

How low is low? Is the alarm connected to the coach batteries (I have 2 on my Sunseeker 2300) or the main battery?

I bought this simple battery disconnect switch at Wal-Mart and a larger battery box. I put the switch on the negative side of the battery.

You are so right! I can't believe I said positive terminal. Sparks will fly.
