Battery disconnect switch?

New to my newer 98 Four Winds, my old RV didnt have a battery disconnect switch, What is it?
when Im plugged in everything works fine and there is a green light on the switch, (a rocker switch at the entry door) it only rocks one way? I have no interior 12v lights while disconnected from power.

The disconnect switch comes in handy for storing your RV with the battery disconnected. Basically works as if the battery cable is being disconnected near the battery. The switch activates a remote disconnect solenoid.

My disconnect switch rocks both ways. When I'm on shore power the green light is always on, even when the disconnect switch is engaged.

When I'm disconnected from shore power, green light on means I'm on coach battery power. Green light off means disconnect is engaged and all coach 12 volt systems are non-operational.

Maybe 4 Winds uses a different type of switch or the rocker switch is bad.

Push once to turn on, push it again to turn on, Turn it off when storing.
