Battery Cutoff Switch Installation - Cherokee TT

I installed a Marinco 701 Battery Master Switch on the battery box of my Cherokee Travel Trailer.

Any pics of the install? I just bought the same battery switch and am looking for ideas on placement.

Thanks

Mostly just video, I would have to capture screenshots. If you can't watch the video, let me know and I will put some pictures up tonight. Perhaps it isn't clear that this is a link to a you tube video of the installation.

Sorry, I didn't realize you had attached a video. Great job on the video and it gave me some great idea on installing mine. I really appreciate it.

Not to be difficult but I have to ask, Why not just take the cables off the battery, unhook them? Unless of course theft is the biggest reason.

I did the same thing a couple weeks ago, I ended up with a different brand but almost identical battery switch.

I took out all 4 knockouts and then dremel'd off the remaining plastic "feet" at the corners to make it shorter to fit under the lid of my smaller battery box.

Didn't think there was any point in putting the bottom plate on the switch as there is nothing exposed that wouldn't normally be anyways.

I didn't have a hole saw the right size and ended up with a hole that was sligthly too large, so I used the extra gap to actually JB Weld the battery switch in place. The dark grey color matched fairly well.


The underside of the switch rests almost perfectly on the battery so there is no movement, and the JB Weld epoxy has made it all one nice uniform piece molded into the cover.
