12v. path?

I have a 2017 26U.
I plan on installing a battery disconnect, like the Perko units that are popular on boats. "On/Off".
I'd like it to be inside by the door, so one could reach it to turn on or off. Luckily, there's the big seating area right there.
But, does the main positive go under the floor to the converter? I won't drill a hole in the body, but I would follow a wire already going. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be room in the battery box to add a large switch, and I want it out of the weather and tire spray.
Alternate ideas?

Hi

I believe you will find that there is more than one cable to the battery. Of course it's AS so one can never be 100% sure The inverter often seems to get a dedicated wire.

Thanks, I kinda expected that, but figured I could have one large cable to the switch and all the smaller one's attached to whatever post I provide for the other side. BTW, after scouring YouTube it seems the consensus is to NEVER put the switch into the + path, but to use the -.
(I wouldn't have done that, but I will)

The AS is not at the house, so I need to check the batteries when I go to load stuff in it tomorrow.
When I looked at the dealership, I saw two Interstate Batteries in the box and didn't take a photo. Google shows more than one cable in their images.
