Is this the correct wiring for dual batteries with switch?

Is this the proper way to wire dual batteries?

Generally you will find that the alternator wire is not attached at the switch, or at least not on mine, it is connected at the starter.

Here is my connection. Don't ask me why two loaded. :Doh:

It looks almost the same. See I have an independent set of wires going from the starter AND the Alternator straight to the battery which will now go to the Perko instead. I suppose there is no difference if i run one each fronm the starter and alternator to the same positive post on the perko?

Also, if i have another Pos and Neg coming from the instrument panel area that supports the stereo, gauges etc...I run those through a circuit breaker then to the Pos on the perko and ground with the rest to the battery Neg?
