Does anyone know of location of battery cut off, and switch for lights in both battery compartments which is connected to a light in the engine acess well.

Had two new engine batteries installed. now those three light are on, had to take bulbs out to store unit.

Is it ok to switch off the main 50 amp breakers while storing?

Owners manuel says there is a battery disconnect switch, but not where it is.

Appreciate any help, this is my first diesel, Cat C7, 300Hp, Fleetwood, Expedition, 38N.

Most MH have switches in the Battery compartment. There is also a Battery switch in the entrance area. List the Year of your Fleetwood Exp. Then someone with your coach can give you better information.

Good Luck

Our Expedition, 2006, has a switch on the drivers left side console near the cruise control switch that controls the utility lights. The lights are located under the hood, in the water bay, battery area, and rear engine area and do not have switches on the individual lights. The bin lights which do have individual switches on the lights have a master switch near the front door. Ours is on the front dash area and are easily seen as you enter the coach. This switch does not control the utility lights you question.

Regarding the battery cutoffs, look in the front compartment on the right side above the windshield. Ours is near the level 'gauges' and next to the water pump on/off toggle switch and the water heater electric or propane switches. Please let us know what you find out that solves your problem. You should not need nor can I think of a reason to shut off the 50 amp breaker. You may need to check to be sure that your inverter is turned off. The switch for that is also in the compartment above the windshield. If the led is on in the Invert button, push the button to turn it off.
