Electrical Shut off? Ramp weight? Octane 28ft

Hi all! I recently purchased an 08 OCTANE ZX 28ft Toy Hauler and cannot find the shut off switch for the LIFE of me. I have shut off the main circuit breaker under the fridge but it does nothing for me. Lights still work and batt still drains. Do I need to install an external power cutoff?

Also, I see the rear ramp holds 1200 lbs when used as a sitting area. How much can it hold while just driving something up? I am moving cross country and want to put a 2900lb car in the back.

Please and thank you for all the help and assistance!

Welcome to JOF !

According to the 2008 Octane ZX owners manual it states: "The cargo ramp has a maximum weight capacity of 2500# in the vehicle loading mode,       which is not necessarily the capacity of the cargo bay. Do not exceed this maximum weight rating at any time. The cargo ramp door is spring assisted to aid in opening and closing the ramp door."
