Battery disconnect fuse?

I'm trying to find a easy way to stop my battery from use when not using the camper for long periods. I know pulling off the negative side would work but was thinking a fuse in the panel would do the same. I have a ZT31SB. I was always under the impression that draining the battery completely would shorten the life. Thx in advance.

You are correct on hurting your battery by continuing to drain it.
Ever thought about a battery disconnect?

I just ordered one of these for $8.45 shipped from Amazon. Seems like a cheap fix. Still need to open the battery box but no longer need tools to disconnect power.
