If it is a simple removeable key type, then fit it in the positive line, that leads from each battery bank.
The switch needs to cut out all applianced, so make sure that the connection to the battery from the alternator doesn't directly connect to the main system: the alternator connection (or from the slpit charger) should go to the battery side- the output of the switch to the main distribution bank.
You will need one switch per battery bank. Do not connect in the negative return line, as this is not considered good practice.
