Location of 12vdc disconnect?

Just purchased a 2013 16UL Work & Play. Anybody happen to know where the 12vdc system disconnect (on/off switch) is located? Thanks!

I have noticed that some trailers do not have a cut off switch. I bought a new 32 foot fifth wheel and was surprised that there was not a cut off switch. I ended up buying one from West Marine and installed it next to the battery. It is nice to have to cut the battery power when the trailer is in storage it will keep the detectors from draining your battery. I would guess that if you can not find it, it does not have one. They are usually in an obvious place. People on this forum recommend installing the cut off switch on the negative side of the battery. Good Luck

Congratulations on your new camper. We just purchased and took delivery of a 2013 Work and Play 25 UDT and there is no battery disconnect installed. You will have to purchase and install one yourself or just disconnect the negative battery cable when storing the unit for extended time periods to prevent parasitic battery drains as mentioned in a previous reply.

Thanks everyone! Now that we've confirmed there isn't one---guess I can cross "find disconnect" off my to-do list

We just purchased a '13 18EC for our Street Glide and plan to remove the battery before storage and keep the battery on a tender in the garage through the winter.
