You are very welcome.
As to the switch...
Always break voltage; never the ground.
You can put a kill switch between the hot 12 volts and the rocker switch if you want. Once you find out what is wrong with the motor you will never use it again though.
I DID, however, put a kill switch for the front landing gear on my Fiver that serves two purposes.
Kids and Juvenile Delinquents LOVE to press switches on the outside of the camper "Just Cause They are There" and can easily damage your rear stabilizers if they are down. (Not so important on the rear stabs as they will pop a breaker before they damage anything). The landing gear is a whole nuther issue because lifting the front with the stabs down will attempt to lift the wheels off the ground. When the weight transferred to the stabs hits about 3000 pounds they will fold.
and two: Have you ever tried to hook up to a camper with inoperative landing gear? REAL pain in the butt. Big bottle jacks; shoring; and lots of help required. Saves on locking the king pin for security.
