We have a 2013 JayFeather 228 and the battery dies after 2 weeks.

Hey herbjayco I also have a 228. I installed a cutoff switch on my battery box. Works great and also cuts the power to my power tongue jack so nobody can play around with it when parked on my driveway. Pretty easy to install and cheap.

I use one as well. Highly recommend marine grade switch is you mount to the outside of the battery box.

Jeff, I received mine in today and it has a positive and ground terminal. The positive going to the battery positive and then do I hook up the common and ground it to the frame? Will this switch also bypass the 30 amp fuse on the battery?

I thought battery disconnects just had 2 terminals,
1 = Positive from battery
2 = Positive to TT

I thought the switch just breaks the positive circuit like a light switch?

Herbjayco it has been awhile since i did the install. If I remember correctly I just ran the positive and negative from the trailer to the switch and then positive and negative to the battery. Trailer is out in storage so maybe some else can chime in?
