Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perko Main Battery Switch Works great! Great price! Note I did not use it in a marine application. I have a side by side UTV. For some reason, with switch off, gauges still stay on and drain battery. Replaced the key switch, replaced the solenoid, checked all fuses(cleaned them and fuse block). Still had current going through system to gauges. Wired the Perko switch into the positive side (hot) side of battery. Now when I shut the ignition off and then the Perko switch, everything goes off. Great solution to a problem. Just FYI, UTV is an off brand, and the major brand folks don't want to work on it and "say" they can't get parts. Interesting, because this company still makes chain saws, riding lawn mowers, string trimmers, edgers, even zero turn mowers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more dead battery Wanted something with simple on/off function easy for anyone to operate and this switch fits the bill. Very simple to install and works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more dead battery Those little power robbing devices that are always "ON" take away enough power in time to make a battery very low on power....this is the cure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Install, works as advertised We had issues with our battery being drained. After much research, I kept coming back to the Perko Switch. I had some other "shade tree" options I was kicking around, but in the end, I'm very glad I paid the money to go this route. The switch is very solid and was easy to install. It included good directions as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many Uses Modern electronics often come with "always on" curcuits for memory etc. This is good to a point, but very annoying if you find yourself coming back to a low battery on a regular basis. For medium and longer term storage, having a manual off and on switch will solve the problem of these "Phantom Loads"

I have a small travel trailer using a deep cell. Unless I unhook the battery I have a slow constant drain. Can I use this switch mounted on the side of my battery case which sits on the tongue, and connect to the positive terminal?

Asked by: Don with question
Yes, this switch can be used in that way but will want to keep in mind that this switch has a capacity of 250 AMPS Continuous / 360 AMPS 5 Mins. Intermittent.
