This was the second disconnect I purchased in a year. The key broke off inside the first. So far this one has been fine. 485343

This battery disconnect is perfect of isolating my RV batteries. I mounted it on a plastic 4x4 junction box and then onto one of the battery boxes then wired it up. Works great!. Easy to install and easy to use. Saves unwanted battery drain when the RV is not in use. 486006

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • Battery Disconnect Switch for Use on Travel Trailer
  • You can use the Marine Battery Switch # 277-000403 for your application but since this item is not rated for outdoor use I recommend using a junction box like # 3375601100 to provide a degree of protection from moisture. The switch housing (not including the knob) is about 1-1/4-inches deep so you'd want to use hardware that is about 2-inches long. If space is available in your battery box you might be able to mount the switch there. In this case a better choice might be the Epicord...

  • Battery Disconnect Switch for Forest River Surveyor During Storage
  • You have a couple of different options when it comes to disconnecting the power from your batteries when your Forest River Surveyor is in storage and they all just depend on your personal preference as to which one is best for you. What you are likely referring to is something like the Epicord # 277-000096 which you rotate the key to the on and off position when you want to use the batteries for power. If you are looking for something a little more secure though we also have the...

  • Does Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 Need Wiring Diagram
  • The poles of the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 that you referenced are not polarity sensitive so you can run either pole for either wire. Basically this just acts as a way to either open or close a circuit so as long as you attach both wires to it the polarity would not matter.

  • Installation of Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch
  • A battery disconnect switch such as the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 will simply install inline from the 12V terminal on your 7-way to your pair of 12V batteries; because of this you are going to need one switch per battery. I have added a link to a video review of this switch for you to check out as well.

  • Hardware Needed To Install 277-000096 50 Amp Battery Disconnect Switch
  • The 50 amp battery disconnect switch would install inline on the positive battery cable. If there's enough slack in the positive cable to reach the area where you want to mount the switch, you'd simply cut disconnect the positive battery cable and cut it at the point where it reaches the terminals on the back of the switch. You'd need to install a ring terminal on the wire, but the size terminal you need will depend on the gauge of the wire used for the cable (the wire gauge should be printed...

  • Recommended Switch and Isolation of Two 12V Batteries
  • We don't have anything to be a power selector quite like what you are describing. We have the isolation solenoid # TR118665 that will only allow power to flow in one direction so the second battery cannot drain the first which a simple switch can be added to. The other option is to have two batteries run completely separate and use the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key - 50 Amp # 277-000096 on each one. This will isolate the on/off power of each battery, but what is connected...

  • Can Key of Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 be Removed when On
  • The only time the key of the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 can be removed is when the key is in the off position. The key has to be installed for it to be in "ON". It can withstand some weather pretty easily like most wiring that you might find under the hood of an engine, but you wouldn't want to submerge it by any means.

  • Can the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch # 277-000096 be Installed on Negative Battery Terminal
  • Since the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key # 277-000096 basically just disrupts the connection it can be used for either the positive or the negative side of the battery. Really the only time that it matters is when you install a battery disconnect like the Roadmaster # RM-766 which is designed to charge the battery while it is disconnected.

  • How to Turn Off Refrigerator in Trailer
  • There should be a breaker dedicated solely for the refrigerator like part # 324-000119 that you can simply flip to the "off" position for when you don't want the refrigerator to draw power. If for some reason you don't have one you can install a disconnect like the Epicord # 277-000096 on the power wire to easily disconnect the power when needed.

This switch has easy to use bolt-on terminals, comes with a removable key, and has a 1-year warranty. You will need one switch for each battery. In order to install the switch, I recommend making a circular hole for the terminals to slide into and then attaching it to the outside of your plastic...
