Good luck!
Drill a hole through the top of the battery box close to the negative side, take the lead off of the negative post , move it to one side of the switch.Get a piece of 10-12ga. Wire about 8 long crimp an eyelet for 10-12ga wire on each end. Connect one end to the other terminal on the cutoff switch and the other end to the neg post on the battery.use some rubber silicone/sealant between the top of the battery box( where you drilled the hole and the cutoff switch... done.

Installed a lockable aluminum battery box to the A frame and attached the disconnect switch to it.

Switch is on the + side. I don't want any current going into the travel trailer.

I have a 2019 JayFlight. There is no disconnect. I take the negative wire off the battery and haven't had any more drained battery issues.

I installed one similar to the one listed below on my 28BHBE just outside the box on the passenger/door side. I also replaced the box and battery with a larger size. Works great and my battery is always ready to go.

Harbor Freight has a good one for $7. I attached mine on top of the batter box.
