2001 Rialta in Reno

My late husband & I had a 1984 LeSharo in SoCal years ago. Now I'm parternering with my daughter & son-in-law. We just took delivery yesterday.

We had a thunder storm last night. When I went out to be sure the windows were closed, I noticed that the TV, VCR, and a little grn light were on. I'm sure this will drain the coach battery given time. I checked the Operator Manual and didn't find an easy way to turn off the 12v power except throwing the circuit breaker. I've heard in the past that unnecessary flipping of circuit breakers can weaken them.

Does anyone know the best way to turn off the power in a Winnebago Rialta?

Pleased to meet you all and thanks for any help you can give.

Welcome to the forum I think there should be a battery disconnect switch..And I think that takes the house batteries off line...If I am wrong I am positive someone will correct me . Where are you storing the MH. Can you leave it plugged in? Best of luck and again...Welcome

Welcome to the forum. There should be a battery disconnect switch, find it and throw it, this will keep your house batteries from draining as fast, they will still drain down after time if the coach is not used.
