isolator with multi position switch

Hi gang,

How would I wire up the switch in pic A to work with relay isolator in pic B?

A:

B:

I am running the starter and truck off the primary battery, and have the winch and auxiliary components running off the auxiliary battery.

I want to isolate the batteries, charge them both at the same time, yet be able to manually switch between them in case the primary ever goes dead and I need to use the aux to jump the truck, and turn them both off if necessary.

Re: isolator with multi position switch

I was poking around on the Blue Sea site and found this. It might do everything you want in a single unit, without a separate switch. It also allow self-jump starting without getting out of the driver's seat:

Re: isolator with multi position switch

You can do all of that with a starter solenoid and a remote switch inside the cab. Obviously, the difference is that you would need to energize the solenoid to charge the aux battery.
