Is this a new feature for 2024?


Recommended Posts

Not sure if the RED disconnect switch for the inverter has been on previous trailers or this new for 2024? It's located next to inverter. When would I need to turn this Off? I was told to just turn OFF batteries when storing trailer (3-4 weeks) between trips. Storage location has no power or sun.  thanks

Based on the age of your trailer I suspect that you actually have an inverter/charger (I/C) rather than just an inverter. If so, that switch kills the power going back and forth between the batteries and the I/C. In one direction the current is supplying battery power to the I/C to be changed into 120VAC for the coach. In the other direction the current is supplying 12VDC to charge the batteries.

You would want to turn this switch off while doing any maintenance such as unbolting cables or changing fuses. Also if you want to stop the batteries from being charged, you would turn this switch off.

Yes looks like they changed the Inverter disconnect switch from an Optifuse breaker to the same cut off switch you have for the solar panels above the steet side bed. Here’s a pic of the Inverter Optifuse breaker on our 2023 LEII
