2015 Kitty Kat Battery Disconnect ?

Trying to figure out the Battery Disconnect on my 2015 Wildcat 317RL.

My question is the hitch lights, blue front lights and landing gear still work with the battery disconnected....and yes the AC power...aka converter is off...Besides going check everything else, anyone know if other items stay powered?

The items you mentioned won't pull any power unless you turn them on. However, the propane detector, etc., may also be powered on and they will draw down the battery. I installed a disconnect switch directly on the battery. When its off, everything is off.

What John said but I'll add-- my LP detector has a little (blue?) led to show
it has power. If your LP det has a power indicator you can tell if your
battery switch shuts it off. If the battery switch does not shut it off
you'll need to install a disconnect closer to the battery(s).

I just installed a Blue Sea battery switch on mine. It's rated water proof
with direct spray. Comes in single or dual battery type as
well as "keyed" or key-less. Ebay ~ $25 range.

Happy Trails!
