Thanks Steve,

This is pretty much how my set up is since I can shut off the entire panel from the panel directly. Just to confirm my understanding:

1. It is normal then that the 1/2/both/off switch serves only to select the battery to ventilate and start the engine?

2. The wiring of the other appliances is completely independant of the 1/2/both/off switch (all wired to the house bank via panel and fuses)

3. radio and bilge pump bypass both the panel and the switch with in-line fuses

4. the charger is directly wired to the batteries

Thanks again so much for your help. Everything seems to be working fine but I am far from an expert with electricity
