Battery disconnect in Palamino Solaire EP

Does any one know if there is a battery disconnect in the 317 BHSK

Ours does not have one. I would love to install one though. Please let me know if you find a good solution.

Very simple:

Amazon.com: Marinco 701 Battery Disconnect Switch: Automotive


I used one in my last camper. Attach it to the outside of your battery box with screws or double-sided tape.

This may be a dumb question, but I just got a solaire (our 1st TT), so what would be the reason for one of these?

To turn off power when storing.

all RV's have parasitic power drains that, without a disconnect switch, they will drain the battery in a few days.

Like the previous poster stated, your battery will drain due to parasitic draw. In a matter of a couple weeks (if not sooner), it will be dead.

While we're on the topic, one addition I would also suggest is a battery theft protection device.
