Yeah, my takeaway in a nutshell. One wonders why the switch is even provided.

Exchanged emails with a Keystone rep and he confirmed that the Disconnect switch lives up to its name on my 2019 Cougar at least, it disconnects everything and is designed for those who store their coach, expecting no power draw from anything. Nothing, nada.

It also did not make any sense to me - that some devices would still draw power while Disconnected...

The iN-Command module has its own CMOS battery (it's essentially an Android Tablet) and it will keep all of its settings too, albeit the clock could be off.

Relieved.

You might want to validate that Keystone rep's confirmation. We have loads and loads of "Keystone validations" and "Keystone confirmations" documented on the forum that were not only "not correct" but many that were "completely out in left field".....

I hope your situation is different from many of the "Keystone comments from reps who have never seen the inside of the trailer they're "expertly advising" owners...... But .......

Don't bet the farm that your rep has a clue about what he told you!!! If want really test him, ask where it's located on your particular model RV!
Everyone I know with a newer model RV the disconnect DOES NOT disconnect ALL 12volt systems and will leave you with a DEAD battery in about a week in storage.

On my 2017 bullet Premier, it didn't even have a disconnect switch and when I put it in storage of course the CEO sensors and the sound system would drain the battery in a couple weeks. So I installed one on my own
