Go to Amazon and search for battery disconnect switch. Take your pick.

Thor typically does not install a battery disconnect for the chassis batteries. They usually only install them for the house batteries.

You may find a chassis battery disconnect on a DP on a freightliner chassis. On my 2007 Itasca is was in the middle of the rear of the engine. Looked like a typical battery disconnect seen on some boats. I briefly had a Vista, gas coach and don't recall if it had one.

Well, I would pick one with at least a 300A continuous rating, more for short periods.

On the Tuscany lineup which includes the Venetian and others, the Chassis Battery switch will be in the compartment with the two batteries

Yes on the Tuscany. My 2015 Tuscany has the disconnect in the starting battery compartment. But it is under the batteries and one has to remove a shield to turn the switch.

Interesting, mine is up on the front wall to the left near the top of the compartment

Very handy location so they improved on it quite a bit
