New to the group. Been lurking for a while and learning a lot from you all, and now I've got a few questions.

We recently sold our pop-up this past fall and just picked up our new Zinger 26BH over the weekend and brought her home and stored in our barn. Can't wait to get it out in the spring. I noticed 2 things and couldn't find any information in the manual so hopefully somebody here can help.

First question:there is a switch that we can't figure out what it does and don't remember what we were told during pdi. It is the switch directly to the left of the "porch light". Does anybody have a 26bh that might be able to answer this?

2nd question has to do with the battery. When we unhitched and was getting ready to go in the house, I noticed a red light was lit on the radio. Can I cut all power 12V power to the unit w/o disconnecting the battery? In this case, since it's put up for the winter I was planning on taking the battery inside to the basement anyway,but just wondering about once we get her out next season. Is the 12V battery always "on" when not connected to shore power?

Look forward to responses.

Go out side of the unit look in the upper left hand corner of the canopy. If there is a electrical socket there that switch controls it for your canopy lights. Ypu plug in your lights there and can turn them off and on with that switch

First, congratulations on your new unit. Secondly, I second fhenn on the switch usage. Your 12V battery system will always have a draw on it unless you have a battery disconnect and throw it to the off position. Your propane gas detector will be one of the culprits always drawing 12V power, along with anything else that's 12V that doesn't have an on/off switch.

I just picked up the 26BHL and that second switch on my trailer turns on all the center interior lights, turn them all individually on and that master light switch can then turn them off and on. The radio does stay on on the far right is a button you can push that ejects the whole radio face plate for removal and that kills the light.

Thanks for the helpful answers. The manual wasn't as helpful as I had hoped it would be. Just general info that covers all of the Crossroads, but nothing "zinger" specific.
