Mark Polk says negative:


and so does RV Four Seasons
Only because he is showing an uninsulated disconnect switch. I wouldn't use those types of switches at all, even on the negative side.

First thing I did to my new camper was to install a disconnect switch. I used a Marine grade switch with sufficient load capacity.
I would never install one with exposed contacts. Installed on the Negative side.

If the cheaper exposed contacts switch is on the ground side........ It doesn't matter. Kinda like that exposed bolt/screw for the ground cable on your frame

Out of curiosity, why would anyone buy one of those cheap knife switches when a BluSea switch is rated for more and a couple extra dollars?

I'd be interested in buying one of those blue sea switches. By chance does anyone have a link where one could be purchased? Thanks
