By "fabric"? Are you talking about Coroplastģ

If so, that's the way they're built.

Some have a thick woven fabric and some have corrugated plastic screwed underneath the trailer. My 29vt has the corrugated plastic. It’s similar to what a political yard sign is made out of but thicker and heavier.

According to the FR website, your trailer should have accessible underbelly panels. I didnít see any mention of a battery switch.

If one exists it will be under the left front corner of the rig on the inside of the frame rail next to the J-Box (Junction Box). Follow your positive (+) battery cable(s) from the battery to find it. Not all towables have a battery switch.

Moved to Wildwood sub-forum since OP is asking for model-specific information.

Not 100% sure, but if the OP's model is from the Northwest region it might not have the AccessiBelly Enclosed Underbelly Panels.

The OP is from Alabama so unless they bought it used, a Northwest region would not be sold east of the Rockies.
