Battery Disconnect

Does anyone know if our 2008 3400RL has a main battery(2) disconnect and if so where. Thanks - Larry

My 2008 3400RL had one in the "convenience center" where the water/cable/satellite hookups are. Had a red "key".

....be aware that this switch does not totally disconnect everything from the battery. There are several things that are direct wired to the battery. The break-away brake switch and carbon monoxide alarm are two that I think are direct wired, not sure if there are others.

Do you know if there are enough things still connected that it would drain the battery in a month? We just bought a new 2014 3625RE, left it parked for a month and returned to a stone dead battery. I did shut off the battery disconnect.
Thanks

Yes, it is certainly possible, particularly if the battery was damaged over the winter.
