Hello, I just purchased a 2016 crossroads longhorn reserve 5th wheel. It has dual batteries. It is not hooked up to electricity yet. I cannot locate a battery disconnect switch. I don't think there is one. There is a white (ground wire?) coming out from the rv and also a black one that are not hooked to the batteries. I was wondering if this is why nothing is working. Any thoughts?
Before you hook the battery up , trace the white wire to make sure it actually is connected to the frame. Factory might have screwed up colours of wire...
you can buy a disconnect that connects to one of the terminals of the battery.
It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.

Also, without a disconnect, you Must leave the safety brake pin in place while the connection is made. If not, you'll energize the brakes which will usually end up frying the pin switch, overheating it.
You can hook the disconnect to either positive or the negative terminals to create the "open," although I favor the positive.
