Battery Disconnect Devices

I have been having problems with an unknown battery drain so am thinking about getting several Battery Disconnects. Has anyone else used these devices?

My battery isolation relay on the house batteries doesn't work, previous owner installed knife switches on the battery terminals. They work great for storage, no reduction in battery power after 4 month winter sleep.

I used two knife switches, similar to the one in the lower right corner of the picture above. One for the house and one for the chassis. No issues thus far.

Switches

I have used the two on the left on previous coaches.. Green one on the engine battery terminal and the red one to isolate my inverter from its direct connect to the house battery. Both worked just fine.
