My trailer is parked in front of my house. Because of that I have a chaing wrapped around the battery and the propane tank as a theft deterrent. Anything I can do to minimize opening the box is welcome. So I mounted a switch on the box itself.

I was under the impression that batteries can create "explosive" gases. Was always told never to lay a metal tool on the battery because accidentally shorting terminals could create a spark and explosion. If for no other reason, would not be in favor of putting any type of switch that might spark inside of the battery box. I also notice that when jump starting a car they tell you to hook one jumper cable to battery, and the other to a ground somewhere in the engine compartment but not on the battery.

Battery boxes are designed to let any gases vent.

If you are talking about pulling the fuse to disconnect the battery, it's inline on the positive side close to the battery.

Ok, I knew about that fuse. I thought he was pulling a fuse from the control panel in the camper itself. Makes sense now....thanks for clarifying.

That's the one I was talking about. Simple, no extra cost.
