I had it on my Escape 19' with battery in the front box, but also had solar, so solar maybe the common denominator. They are not hard to install. Chapi, I'm sure we can walk you thru it.

No switch (or solar) on my 2009 17B.
I'd pop open the battery box & disconnect the ground when I put it away for awhile.

If the battery cut off switch is not installed in your trailer you can remove the 12V fuse(s) that supply voltage to the sensors or disconnect the negative battery cable to eliminate parasitic draw.

Solar and battery in the front storage box, but no bypass switch on my 2013 19'.

Maybe it depends on the day of the week the trailer was built...

My April 2013 19' with solar has a cutoff switch on drivers side front dinette at knee level.

I have one there, on my 19', (Sep. 2013..no solar). Thought it was standard.

Are you sure Doug?,
Yours and seems to be the only 19'?, do not know anything about the 17, sorry Chapi !. There was also one underneath the bed on my 2012x 19', same toggle, but this one operated the 12v heat pads. Maybe it is in the unit someplace else??

Pretty sure it is standard, Myron. Mine is there. It doesn't have a fancy protector like yours though. Looks like a great idea. You can just make it out at the very front on the bench in this photo.

Getting corked once in a while is not a bad thing.
