Help! Marinco 701b battery disconnect switch

Hello
looking for anyone familiar with the Marinco 701b battery switch
I would like to know what if any hardware comes with the switch
I have read some threads and it is mixed as to whether you need your own copper and nuts /bolts or not
I have ordered one through our local RV dealer only to find it grossly over priced compared to Amazon.
If everything is included it might explain the difference in price if not
Im accepting the order and will have to work something else out
In the same spirit anyone install a Marinco 701b on their trailer and how well does it work, easy to put on etc
Thanks

Help me understand this...

You made a special order with your RV dealer, then decided to comparison shop after the fact, found out your dealer might be higher than Amazon so you are contemplating sticking him with the part.

That seems very wrong to me.

What did they do to deserve that?

Presumably you asked about the part, they told you they could special order it for you at $X, which you agreed to.

I guess this is a case of "different strokes ..."

I hear what you are saying and DO feel obligated to follow through. However my question remains what comes stocked in the box
we are talking a difference of 38.00 and 120.00
I am a newby to trailering and am relying on my RV dealer to direct me in the correct course of action. Thanks to you folks and other research I am learning what is require to stock our new trailer.
Im just trying to understand what the possible differences could be as to justify such a huge pricing gap

Is $120 installed?

That would be pretty reasonable diffence then.

I don't know the specific model numbers, but each disconnect switch I have installed included only the switch. No cables or fuses.

Not installed and Im thinking you are right about the hardware.
Ill have to talk to them and show them a comparison price. Maybe since we are new customers we can work the install into the fee
IM just hoping to be armed with more information before I do

$120??? Way overpriced. I bought one from my dealer for about $30. Regarding what is included, the nuts for the connector posts are included. There were no cables with it. I did have to buy 4 stainless steel screws and nuts to mount it. I mounted mine on the side of my battery box.

If it is a new trailer and you purchased it from the dealer, maybe they will give you a discount if you ask. I get discounts on all my purchases from my dealer. But then again, I am on my third unit purchased there over the years.

Is this the one you are talking about? If so, even $38 seems high.

how did you hook yours up all the the negative side?
I like the appeal of disabling the power jack as a theft deterrent ans was thinking of mounting inside the storage compartment
what did you use for wire?
