    ^ marine or perhaps a post mount ? eg. google images 'battery disconnect'.

    wc, good idea ... if I'm reading it right, 1.2 ohms

    Point well taken, grounds are very important and often neglected !!!

    It was a random thought that popped into my head as a result of a discussion on dual batteries. Since you own a ford diesel, I thought you might benefit...

    1.2 ohms.... Not bad, not good either, specially when you get into higher amp draw (starting or winching) all it means is both batteries are not contributing equally when you turn your key.
    not something that NEEDS to be fixed immediately but it is an "inefficiency" that could be made better time/funds permitting.

    As a reference, mine reads 0.1 ohms between the posts.

    Well the switch finally came in as they had to order it. I assembled the + side of things and throw the multi-meter on it to see if there was any resistance after reading above posts. There is a resistance of.3 ohm through the switch which I can live with. Now just have to find a good place to mount the switch. Pictures when project completed.

    Solder is your friend.
    Little dab on all the wire crimp connectors and it'll be trouble free for years...
