I put mine in the camper, anytime I can keep an electrical item out of the weather, it has to be better for it. I installed a dual battery switch, both of my batteries are connected to postion 1, postition two is for a additional 3rd battery or solar panel that I can simply plug in to a connector outside the trailer. The switch is flush mounted in the paneling.

Boating supplies have very nice battery switches, as others have posted here. They are a great 4 setting design for a 2 battery setup; providing complete off, both batteries on, or either battery on. I mounted mine in the battery storage alcove.

I just finished this one. I welded up a box to hold the switch and added a digital voltmeter to see what the voltage is at each battery. This is on a 25RKS
