Good electrical cutoff switch?

Looking for suggestions for a good under the hood total cutoff switch.

I've got a very slight electrical drain on the battery and am not sure where the draw is coming from. Seems to have happened after I installed an electric compressor for OBA, but still can't get it isolated.

Battery will drain down in 7 to 10 days if she's not run. I have a mega-fuse located on the pass fender that might be a good spot to put in a cutoff switch.

Any suggestions on type / brand would be appreciated. Not sure how much the Bronco draws while running.

Many thanks, B2

These are the cutoff switches I like. They are bulky but are great quality.

x3 - I've been using this on a John Deere Model A tractor for many years. Be sure to use the little red and green felt washers to prevent corrosion.
