Battery Disconnect Switch location

Can someone who owns a Rockwood Ultralight 2703ws (or similar) please tell us where a battery-disconnect switch might be located? Thanks.

8315BSS Signature Ultra Lite - I mounted the battery disconnect switch to the outside of one of the (2) exterior battery boxes.

In the bathroom bottom cupboard to left of the shower as you face it.

Installing Battery Disconnect

Our first trip with our 'new' 2010 2304 ultralite kicks off tomorrow. The TT came with a new Interstate RV/marine battery - not a true deep cycle. I don't know how much boondocking we will be doing but I will probably be getting a second battery.

The TT will be stored away from our house. It will be sitting unused for 3 - 4 weeks at a time so I'm thinking of installing a battery disconnect switch.

Option 1 is to install a knife type switch directly on a battery terminal (I assume the switch will fit inside the battery box). The advantage of this arrangement is that I'm sure all parasitic loads will be killed.

Option 2 is to tie into the main 12 v cable that is exposed under the rear bench seat adjacent to the shower. The advantage of this arrangement is that I don't have to access the battery terminal each trip. However, I don't know if having the switch at this location will isolate all of the devices.

Any suggestions or comments?

I installed one of these easy to do and shuts the battery down completely. Install it inline on the positive side of the battery to the TT.
