Our 2015 28.5 RLTS Eagle fifth wheel had the same problem that the OP has. We (service tech) took the switch off the wall it was mounted to, and connected the wires as it said to on the back of the switch. Jumper on the power center had been removed already. Works as its supposed to now. Can't help but wonder why it was not caught before we bought it. The switch looks like the one pictured, red and a 90 degree throw.
Happy Trails

I am glad to hear that the switch has a wiring diagram on the back.

Ours has two posts on the back. One marked battery, the other one I really don't remember, but we hooked both wires coming from the couch to it and everything seems to be working right.

An update on this thread:

I got into the Barn this weekend (temps in the 40s up here in Michigan). I pulled the switch off the bulkhead and figured it out. The main bus wire and the power converter wire (i.e the two large-diameter black wires) were installed in reverse on the two posts. Turning the switch off disconnected the power converter (i.e. 12v shore power) from the trailer.

Swapped the two wires. All good. Turning the switch off disconnects power to the trailer.

Because of this post I checked my battery switch, had to jumper wires fall off in my hand. The crimps were not adequate, I slide the wire back in and crimped the hell out of them, good and tight now. Next time I am out will check to see it the switch is in fact wired correctly to shut off power.
