Battery disconnect (Cruiser 5th wheel)

Hi
I have a 2016 CrossRoads Cruiser 5 th wheel with a battery disconnect knob. Which way does it go for on. Now it is in a vertical position, and connected to power. Is this correct.? The horizontal position says on. Do you leave it in this position (on) at a seasonal site. Unit is plugged in all the time.

All three trailers I’ve had (including my current toy hauler with generator) require the battery to be connected for use of all 12 volt equipment.

If it's continuously plugged in you should never need to use the disconnect. If it's turned to off & plugged in the batteries will not charge.
The best way to totally disconnect the batteries is disconnect the negative cable. The factory disconnect does not totally disconnect all items such as LP/CO detector, electric slide motors & possibly other items that will drain the batteries in just a few days.
