My question is, since the cables on the chassis battery of the motorhome are hooked up on the side of the battery, can I add a "Brass knife switch terminal with stud for top post batteries" to the top post so that I can connect the wire to it and also disconnect the power to the Jeep when I'm done towing?
Any advice is appreciated
IMO you could add the switch. Just make sure the line to the Jeep is fused and it should have a diode in it so not to drain the Jeep battery in case of a failure of the chassis battery or while starting the engine on the chassis.
You could also accomplish this with the use of a 5 pin or 7 pin connector, still should have the diode.
