Does anyone know who the manufacture of the 2012 Eagle Battery Disconnect. I would like to buy this for my 2011, but don't want to buy it from the stealership.

Keystone uses a switch made by Blue Sea. I use Blue Sea and Marinco exclusively for all of my marine work. You can get one through West marine or shop around on line.

Bob, Thank you. I have found a picture of it on a dealer's website, but could not make out band name from picture. After you suggesting Blue Sea I found it. I was having trouble finding a battery disconnect that was surface mountable. I found it.

You can buy them on Amazon for around $23-24

Boy, I wish they were that cheap up here! Been casually looking for a good battery disconnect for a while and I can't seem to find a decent one for under $100! Funny, tried to buy x-chocks from amazon and they wouldn't deliver to Canada...ah, well...

Go to a hot rod shop you can get a "keyed" disconnect very cheap (more or less) http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HLA-002843011/

I just installed a battery cutoff today. Marinco "Park Power 701" which retailed for $25. It's a fully self-contained keyed switch. So it can be installed on the outside of the battery box with no chance of sparking.

My X23b battery would be dead after 2 weeks of sitting. My guess is the antenna booster and other "small" items over that period of time was just too much. I installed it such that the emergency brakes and tow vehicle are NOT cutoff. Only the camper is interrupted.



That said, I'd like to ask a follow-up question: Is it safe to run the camper off of the internal power supply/charger provided by Jayco alone (ie without a battery)? Or is a battery required in the circuit?

McMonk, I bought mine from Texpro Marine in Ontario. They have an ebay store and are very good to deal with. Cost me 40 bucks.
