I'd third Halekai's suggestion of getting a Battery combiner. The one Jody has pointed out is a good one, and simpler and higher capacity than the one Halekai pointed out, which is an older model and much larger.
The Dual Circuit Plus battery switch Jody has pointed out also has the benefit of isolating the house side from the starting side, so that the electronics are effected by the surge/drop which can occur when starting the engine. Yet, if needed, both banks can be combined to start the engine.
In terms of full disclosure, the DCP series battery switch is what is installed on my boat, along with the ACR Jody pointed out.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
