Chinook, battery cutoff switch

Coach Battery cutoff switch!
I cannot find the battery cutoff switch on my (new to me) 1996 Chinook Premier Club, on a 350 Ford Diesel. The manual says " left of the front drivers seat, but it has a fully electric seat adjustment and I can't find any cut off switch anywhere. There is a panel on the headliner that has a green charging light on all the time. I can't turn it off.
Can anyone help?

It sounds like your rig has the same kind of setup as my Dodge. While the chassis or motor battery has a cutoff switch. The house battery has no cutoff. Probably ran directly through the inverter so shutting off the power and unplugging AC power is the only way to remove the house battery safely. This has been a problem with Ford and Dodge in present and older motorhomes.
