Re: Weird switch issue.
Classic, I have already found Black wires with phasing tape to Bank 1 so some are Red and some are Black to the Main Switch so I feel your pain.
Maine: All the continuity checks were good isolated as well as connected. Found and fixed some crimps I didn't like and checked the charging system. BTW the flat washers that came with the Switch (I presume) were under the Battery cable and that's a No No as I understand so I moved them on top of the connections under the locks.
Switch on 1, Starts on 1 and Charges 1
Switch on 2, Starts on 2 and charges 2
Switch on ALL Starts on Both and charges Both.
My issue although probably self inflicted by Testing with a Battery disconnected, is still unresolved but everything works as is should. I as most, need a complete clean up of all systems and I might tackle that this winter. I suspect it will involve more time than money and that fits my budget just right. First thing is a branch panel at the Nav Station for Radios, CD, charging circuits, Etc. Todays Boats have so many accessories and things needing charging and the Main Panel is under the companionway.
Thanks to all for the help..AL
