Like Lewster, I use a marine switch, this one by Hella.

Buy it at Westmarine.
Harbor Freight is cheaper, but the shipping costs erase the benefit. The Hella switch is a good one, we use that for our Solar system disconnect and it has held up well.

I would rather have a switch to disconnect the batteries versus the welding connectors (anderson connectors). I use the anderson connectors for a winch/Jumpstart port on all of my 4x4`s, they are straight forward and easy to use......

I may have misunderstood the application recommended by the OP.

I recommended the Anderson connectors thinking that the OP was physically disconnecting his battery with the purpose being removal of the battery.

That's what I do every fall when I put the Airstream away for the winter.

Otherwise, if you only want to electrically disconnect the battery, a switch is obviously easier.

That's what I want: complete disconnection of the battery for removal. Welding connectors seems nice and compact for doing so.

Anderson connectors will do the job you are looking for. For what it's worth I soldered the wires into the connectors on all of my trucks as I didn't have a crimper stout enough to crimp them.
