You want something that you Push or Turn to shut all power off, you dont want a pull type. And it has to be able to handle the maximum amount of current.

I would look at a 30 amp switch minimum and would prefer a 50 amp if you can find one. Maybe just get a Moroso Battery Disconnect switch.

What I had on my car was the Battery Disconnect at the rear of the car as required and I used a Key Switch on the Dash to shut " most " of the power off. I ran my Water Pump and electric fans on a seperate power wire.

Then I would look at a heavy duty toggle or push / pull switch.
