Battery and Alternator Disconnect Switch Question
I would like to install a disconnect switch for safety on the track and convenience during maintenance.
In searching for switches, I have found two types; switches for cars with alternators and switches for cars without alternators.
With Eliges, are there any harmful consequences to a system like this:
Alternator---battery---switch---starter & rest of the vehicle electrical system
Everything but the switch would have its own ground.
I am proposing this system because it seems to be the most simple. Am I missing some untoward effect of simply opening the circuit at that point?
