Battery disconnect on a 2014 Roo 183

Hey-ooo

I have a 2014 Roo 183. I was happy to see that it had an easily accessible interior battery cutoff. But, does it cut off EVERYTHING? Has anyone used a DMM or traced the wiring to see if it cuts off 100%. Maybe it leaves on the CO detector?

Thanks!!

All of them that I'm aware of would cut off everything. The CO detector is one of several things that will draw down the battery while you're not using the camper. Usually things that you can't cut off any other way.

It cuts off the CO detector, lights, fridge, anything with a nuissance draw so your battery won't die. Power tongue jack will still work (at least on ours - assume they are all the same) and I believe the break-away switch that would activate the brakes of the trailer detached while towing is independent of this switch. And with out 23IKSS, they put the switch in front of the rear bunk. With both sides retracted you have to climb over the kitchen island to access it. So, one of our slide motors bypasses the switch, the other, and the awning do not.

Basically, if you hit the switch, nothing will drain your battery in storage, but there are a few critical items that still have power when you activate them.
