I'm looking to install a Battery Isolation Switch. Reading through the forums, I've determined the following. Can somebody verify my thinking is correct and point out any errors.
I can purchase a Heavy Duty Switch with key from here or somewhere similar, and this will not only provide a locking switch but also avoid some of the wear i've heard about on the Red Key ones.
I'd mount the switch whereever I want, BUT, most recommend near the passenger side seat as its nearer to the battery. I'd then Disconnect the +ve side of the battery and this would be extended to go to one side of the switch, with the otherise of the switch going back to the battery terminal.
If I wanted to maintain a low current for lights etc, I could put a 5amp fuse or similar between the two terminals on the switch.
SO my shopping list would be
2 x Battery Extension Cables (16mm) to go from existing cable to switch and then switch to battery
1 x Switch
Does this all sound right?
