Yes, it is usually referred to as the "battery shut off" or "battery disconnect" switch, which is what to look for when searching for past discussions. It's a small toggle switch, not the big switch as is commonly used. Location details vary by model, and possibly by year and other equipment as well.

The silver toggle switch is located just below one of the dinette bench seats on the face of the bench.

I believe it is, or at least was, standard only with dual batteries.

Not true, both of my prior Escape trailers were single batteries and had the switch.

I stand corrected.

The switch is not standard on all models, though. I don't have one on my 2013 19'.
