Default x-fer switch

I have a 04 Atrium. I let it set for two days un-connected to shore power. I tried to start the main eng and genny and nothing. I was surprised and annoyed the batteries had drained that fast. Especially the chassis batteries. I thought they were separated from the house batteries? I was further annoyed when the inverter wouldn't charge the chassis batts. I hear about a x-fer switch that allows one to start the eng. from the house batts. I'd like to think I have one somewhere but don't know where to start looking and probably wouldn't know it if I did find it. Could someone please give me some guidance? Thanks.

Thanks Mike. Yup, there it was, on the dash. I'd seen it but thought it was for another purpose. I'm afraid learning my coach to the point of total confidence is going to be a long process and probably costly.
