    Default battery and wiring advice

    I'm thinking about permanently wiring in an isolator switch onto the negative terminal of the battery so I can affectively disconnect it without having to physically remove the terminal.

    Looking at this for the isolator itself.

    For the additional wiring, just need to know which of these is appropriate for extending the wiring to the switch? Or is it just a case of the bigger the better?

    Google "battery terminal isolator" for a simpler solution.

    For example, on this page http://shop1.actinicexpress.co.uk/sh...minals___Leads, take a look at "battery quick disconnect".

    For extending the wiring, use the same diameter as existing.

    Whichever way you go, DON'T turn the isolator key off with the engine running as you'll fry the alternator. Been there, done it, on marine installations.
