Coach Disconnect Switch '13 Sightseer 33C

Hello Everyone,
My wife and I just bought a used 2013 Winnebago Sightseer 33C. We owned an ITASCA years ago but have moved now to the Sightseer. Only took it on a short camping trip and now trying to get it ready for storing in for the winter. My question is this. I tried to push the Coach disconnect switch to off but the little green light on the switch stayed on. Does that mean the switch is not working? They say it's bad to allow the coach batteries to keep draining while in storage. I have to start the generator up once a month for it's work out, but that will be hard if the batteries are dead. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Russ - Do you have your rig disconnected from shore power? Inverter off? If yes, I'm not sure what to suggest...

The light in the coach disconnect switch won't go out unless you are unplugged from shore power and don't have the generator running. If you listen and the coach is in a fairly quiet location you should be able to hear the latching on / off coach disconnect contactor move back and forth from on to off when you operate the switch. The contactor is behind all the button style circuit breakers, so if you find the circuit breaker panel then that's where the contactor noise should come from. If you can't hear it then you have a defect that needs to be fixed.
