Battery Shut Off Switch

Hey guys-
I'm looking to install a master shut off switch for my trailer batteries. I go for the Demo tomorrow so I'll know for sure then, but I believe I have 2 batteries. If so, do I need a dual battery shut off or can I use a single? Not sure how they wire 2, and I've never had a shut off.

Also, what shut offs do you suggest, and where to purchase them for best pricing? Any help is appreciated!

I think a dual battery shut off will just let you select one or two or both to shut off. If you just want to shut them both down a single should be all you need.

Awesome. That's what I was thinking but I wanted to ask.

I like the style w the key, anyone have pics of how they minutes theirs? I'm assuming I just cut the main power wire, put on ring terminals and attach to switch, but I'm wondering how you guys have minutes the switch. Thanks!

Assuming that your two batteries are in parrelle , pit the switch in serises with the single positive line that feeds the distribution/ load
