cole heresee switch 75908 is rated at 300A continuous and 2000A intermittent. This is the only one I'd consider - from a quick search, they seem to cost about $45 ea.

My bus had two of these switches mounted already and disconnected by the previous owner. I redeployed the switches and have been satisfied. But, I've never had to start in below 50 degree weather (yet) - Quartzsite may be the first time . If I have troubles, I know how to bypass the switch to start.

Also, maybe I'll measure voltage across the switch during cranking, next time I get the bus out of storage, but it fires up so quickly, this may be tough to measure. Starting is nearly instantaneous.

If it were me, I'd buy the Blue Sea ones. They are as nice as you'll find. Pricey, but very nicely made. I installed their 500A bus bar to tie my house batteries together. It is a nice piece.
