Battery Disconnect

I just purchased a 1995 Bounder in excellent condition and have a question Does anyone have any idea what the Battery Disconnect Switches ( Aux & Main) do in a 1995 Bounder, and when they should be used? The information is lacking in the manual. Thanks

Battery disconnect does just that. It disconnects the battery, like "removing the cable from the post This prevents battery "drain". Usually used when unit is to be stored for a few weeks.

It is specifically for the house batteries in my unit. Mine does not disconnect the chassis battery.

The battery disconnect switches are for long time storage, but be aware there are probably things wired around the disconnect that might still drain the batteries. One should be for the house batteries and one for the chassis batteries. To check, you could turn switches off, then disconnect one battery cable and put a test light or multimeter in the circuit. Any draw should light the bulb or register on the meter.
