Power Question

I have a 2014 5th wheel. Do I have a quick disconnect to cut off all the power while not in use? All the appliances etc. are running clocks, led lights and so forth so my battery is dead when I go to use it again. Or are there other recommendations? Should I just disconnect the batter to preserve its? Thanks .

It would help if you posted year, make,model of 5th wheel.
If it's listed in your sig line, the FR app won't show it.
Some brands come with disconnect switch, some don't.

Most don't. We had to install one in our last RV, but our Dynamax Trilogy came with one.

Both my older Fleetwood Toy Hauler and my new Stealth Toy Hauler had/have built in disconnects. As others have mentioned, if you don't have one built in they are pretty simple to install but it is nice to have them from the factory.
