Forgive me, but what rule#1?

Got a float switch. So the way Im set up now, I have to turn the power on (1,2 or all) in order to turn on the bilge. It has a dedicated switch on the panel. If I just throw the float switch in line, that means Ill have to leave the power on in order for it to work. I don't have shore power, so I dont really like the idea of doing that. Do I rewire the bilge pump directly to the battery, and if so, which one? Or do I just leave the power on?

Thanks for the help folks.
