Country Coach battery cutoff switches?

The 2005 Country coach Allure has a chassis battery cutoff switch but I can't find a cutoff switch anywhere to isolate the house batteries. After 6 weeks in storage the 6 batteries were dead.
If anyone has an idea please let me know.

That's where there's one switch that's marked chassis. If one switch cuts off both sets of batteries then I'll have to check if current is still being drawn. The 6 batteries are out getting a good charge at the shop. I'll check after they get reinstalled.

there are two disconnect switches in the same compartment, one for chassis, another for house. however, it is known that even though you turn off the house switch, there is a significant load on it. this thread may be worth reading Parasitic/unknown loads on house batteries?

Our rig has the electric locks, if you turn off or disconnect the batteries you can't unlock anything! Made the mistake when changing batteries and let the battery bay door latch. Only way I could open it was to use the only key I happened to have that unlocked the bays. (Have since made spares) Couldn't even let the power cord out since the power cord retract wouldn't work with no power. If I have to do it again I'll make sure shore power is connected and wedge doors open!
