Battery Disconnect Switch?

Hi Everyone. We just bought a used 2012 Ford E150 Sportsmobile. We're searching all over for the "Battery Disconnect Switch". Where would that be? We are very new to this obviously, and have looked all over for it.

On a related note, is there anywhere to find a complete owners manual? The seller only had partial pages.

Thank you for any information or guidance.

Greetings - always "best" to provide all vehicle info (engine, gas/diesel ?) - did previous owner confirm a "disconnect" switch ? Call them for more info ? Possible (?) switch is under gaucho couch ? If no "switch" then maybe just regular batt terminals at house batt under 60/40doors ?

My 2011 Indiana build has the disconnect switch on front of the gaucho “kick plate” (for lack of a term). Usually it will be close to the batteries. My 98 did not have one.

And my 2006 does not have one either. Serious oversight on my part but it was not even an option in those days

Mine didn't have one either. I installed a Blue Sea 100amp circuit breaker on the positive lead of my house battery.
Read this thread. It's the go to for SMB electrics.
