This is ALWAYS a debate here .
My opinion is switch the positive.
But IMO IT really it doesn't matter .

Agree with Turbs - I would put the switch on/near whichever treminal is the most accessable.

I agree. That is how I ran mine as well. Find a place that you want to mount it for easy access and a good route for the wire so that it doesn't get rubbed, nicked, or cut. Then make sure you have enough of the right gauge of wire, crimp on your connectors and away you go.

Since you quoted my reply, is this something I am missing or should know about?
