Battery isolator.

Rather ashamed to ask this. Should it be in line from alternator, before battery? Or From +ve of battery to boat electrics and fuse panel and engine permemantly connected to battery?

Bilge pumps are already to be wired from battery via their own circuit breakers.

Thanks gt

The only thing connected direct to the battery should be the bilge pump. Everything else should be connected to the battery via the isolator switch.
