Battery disconnect switch?

2021 FR Salem FSX...

IF my trailer had a batter disconnect switch where exactly would/should it be? I've traced the wires from my battery on the tongue to underneath the trailer where they go inside and don't see anything. I'm fairly certain this trailer does not have a disconnect but want to make sure I'm not missing anything obvious.

Also, would you all suggest I install one?

If you don’t have one, I absolutely recommend one unless you’re going to be plugged in 24/7. Anytime you put your RV into storage, you should disconnect the batteries otherwise parasitic draws will run it down until it’s deader than dead.
