Battery disconnect switches are designed to cut-off electrical power, help protect against electrical fires and theft when equipment is not in use. They also provide a reliable way to shutdown electrical power during maintenance and protect batteries from excessive drain. Installing a battery disconnect switch is usually done either for safety considerations or as an anti theft precaution.

Commercial Vehicle Battery Disconnect Switches

A battery cutoff switch or battery disconnect switch for commercial vehicles provides an effective measure in preventing excessive battery drain.  Excessive drain happens when the ignition switch is in the off position, but the electronics of the vehicle are still functioning, leading to battery drain. The only way to completely prevent battery drainage is to either completely power down the vehicle, disconnect the battery or install a standard battery cutoff switch or remote battery disconnect switch.
 
Our battery disconnect switches are designed to power down the vehicle completely, protecting against parasitic battery drain. Cutting off the battery with a master battery disconnect switch removes all parasitic loads and small leakage currents that kill a battery over time.

Battery Disconnect Switches for Travel Trailers

Since travel trailers, RV’s or recreational vehicles tend to be stored for extended periods the batteries within these vehicles can drain, rendering the vehicle powerless. However, a standard or remote battery disconnect switch can provide life-saving support for travel trailer batteries by allowing the battery to completely disconnect from electrical powers with a simple turn of a knob or push of a button. A battery disconnect switch creates a separation between the connected battery and the device, which blocks current flow and preserves battery power.
