If by 4 way you mean a double pole single throw switch like was mentioned earlier, it has no advantage with batteries in series, like two six volts. If you have mismatched batteries in parallel it would stop the better battery from leaking charge into the weaker one. In practice most people replace both batteries at the same time so, in my experience, a double pole switch isn’t necessary.

Wulfraat,
I'm taking advantage of your switch install. I do have one question. I have a 2019 FC 25 RB with ACM batteries. I can easily duplicate you install (parts, cable, etc).
My positive cable, that now feeds the inverter, has a 100 amp buss fuse on it. May I simply run my 1/0 positive cable to feed the Blue Sea switch from this fuse, then have the inverter on one side of the switch and the converter on the other?

Yup. Just know that all loads (house+inverter) should be less than 100A if you do this (I think I am following - IE place 100A fuse between all loads and batteries)
