That's pricey for only 75 AH. You might want to look into a 6 volt in series bank (GC2) that will provide significantly more AHs (215 or more) for just a few dollars more. I just purchased 2 from Sam's Club for $89 each. $60 additional for more than 2.5 times the amp hours of that 27DC battery.

I have a 2018 Cougar TT. The switch is in the storage area BUT it does not cut off all power. I assume like others that a cutoff switch cutoff all power. No. Had a nearly dead battery after a couple of weeks. So, if you want a cutoff switch, you will have to find a suitable location to cut all power.

Batteries discharge in storage when not connected to some kind of charge maintainer and after several months the discharge can be sufficient to permanently damage the battery.
You might also consider a small Solar-powered Battery Tender available with several configurations. they have saved me a lot of unnecessary work.

Battery disconnect reply

I have a 2017 bullet premiere 31 bkpr and it did not have a battery disconnect. Bought one at O'Reilly Auto Parts and installed it in the battery box

I replaced my 2 x group 24, 75 AH 12 volt batteries with 2 x GC2, 235 AH 6 volt batteries.

I got them from batteries +, they had a buy on-line, pick up in store 10% off coupon, so they were less than $100 each, out the door.

The GC2 have a lot more capacity and are true deep-cycle batteries, I am happy with them.

They are the same foot print of the group 24, just a bit taller, put more weight on the tongue of the trailer and require a bit more maintenance, but I have a nifty system, from amazon, that makes re-filling them extremely easy and I expect them to last a lot longer than what they replaced.
