Thanks everyone for the ideas.

BUT... every RV owner should own a decent DVM. Get a meter.... go check both sides of those breakers. One side will be HOT when the breaker is pulled. Don't connect to that side or you bypass the breaker.
You did mention switching the ADS-B. I won't get into the rules... since anyone can switch off their uAvionix by turning off position lights.
But... if you use the transponder breaker... and pull that to kill power, you have shut down both boxes. A separate toggle switch somewhere might be a better choice. Cheers,
I have a couple volt meters so I will check the breakers this weekend.
As far as switched ADSB, I just mean I don't want it drawing power from the system when the plane is shut down. So technically, I guess, the Master Switch would probably accomplish that too. But if I use the avionics bus, I can leave the ADSB off when starting the engine. I'll have too check the rules now but I can't see why that wouldn't be acceptable...avionics go on as soon as the engine is running.
