Re: guest. switches dual

Depends completely on what wires/cables are connected to what. There are many different ways to connect things.

Might be a good idea to make yourself a wiring diagram, starting with at least the large cables between switches, batteries, starter, alternator, and any inverter or charger.

Get to where you understand this, and how to use it as it is. Then you can decide if you want to keep it as it is, or what if anything you want to clean up or change.

Re: guest. switches dual

Welcome to CF moeme!

Most are 1, 2, 1+2, and off.... 1 and 2 being the house and starting bank... Could be two house banks with a start circuit tied to one... As new moon points out... You'll need to trace these out to know which and what... Especially making sure you have an unswitched bilge pump if not powered in "off" if the boat is left unattended in the water
