Default Tripping the 150AMP Breaker

We have a 2018 Lexos TS being stored in Toronto, Canada and I will be exercising the generator once a month. The manual says “Once the generator is running and generating power (watch the invertor display, once the status light turns "green" the generator is generating power) trip the 150 amp disconnect breaker below the driver side ottoman cushion. This breaker disrupts the charge current from the converter/charger to the lithium batteries.”
I found the “breaker” so do I push the “Red” button in, to trip the breaker? Or do I have to lift the cap? Can I leave the breaker in the “trip” position until the spring?

Pressing the red button will trip the breaker.

Leaving the breaker in the tripped position sounds like a good idea to me as that would prevent accidentally charging the lithium batteries via generator when below freezing. That breaker would need to be on to start the generator.

There's a red key type switch that disconnects solar and alternator charging so that should also be off to prevent accidentally charging the lithium batteries when below freezing.

Thanks and I have removed the red key
