Depends on the RV maker as to what works with the battery switch turned off. I've seen some where the slides work with the battery turned off. Then there are some trailers, North Trail for instance, that has no disconnect.

In our 2009 Jayco Greyhawk Class C, the battery disconnect turned everything off except the converter. I learned that the hard way when I replaced the converter. Fortunately, it was just a shower of sparks with no injury.

The CO and Propane detector ran off the house battery and the ignition side of the chassis battery. Which was a nice reminder to disconnect the battery when putting the MH in storage. Whenever the detectors lost power, they would give a little chirp. If I didn't hear the chirp when turning off the ignition, I knew I forgot to disconnect the battery.

IF YOU WANT ALL OF THE ELECTRICAL SHUT OFF DISCONNECT THE BATTERIES. the cutoff switch DOES NOT turn everything off.
My factory installed cutoff switch turns everything off.
Mine too, the 02 detector runs off a 9v battery, so is not connected to the house batteries.
