Replacing chassis battery cutoff swith in V10 Monarch

Apparently the battery cut off switch for the chassis battery on my Monaco Monarch V10, has gone bad. What type do I need to get to replace it? I have seen some at various RV stores over the years but don't know what type to get. Does the chassis battery need to be disconnected when I change it out?
Thanks for all assistance.

I don't know what brand I have, but I know it is the heavy duty one. It is silver in color with a large flat switch handle that is lockable. I have seen the red ones for sale,
, they are not as durable.
. Go to maybe a Napa store, or some kind of heavy equipment parts store. I used this type in the oilfield, they work great.

Any boating facility should have several to choose from. You wouldn't HAVE to disconnect the battery (s) but the sparks may be disconcerting
