When I'm traveling, it's on. When I'm connected to shore power, it is off. In storage, it is off.

Battery Isolation Switch

I also installed a disconnect switch to use in storage. I made sure the break away switch bypassed the disconnect in case I forgot to turn the switch on when traveling ( or someone turned it off). Could be really dangerous.

Still Have Most Of It Left!

In is disconnect. Ours is in the same location about 10" off the floor. It kills 12v power to everything even when connected to TV power. On one occassion while traveling a box slid across the floor and pushed it in, and when we got to the campsite our fridge was warm. We have since started using a wireless thermometer so we can monitor fridge temps while travelling. I plan on cutting and slitting a short piece of rubber tubing to slip over the shaft of the disconnect switch to prevent that from happening again.

I am not familiar with your set up but some of those type push/pull switches have terminals for normally open and normally closed (depending on actuator position). Have you pulled the switch to check for a set of terminals for the opposite actuation? Just a thought.

No I have not, but that's not a bad idea. I'll check into it. Thanks.
