    Generally a disconnect goes on the positive,That way if a wire gets shorted anywhere in the system,the wire can be killed. (also when shut off it would keep the MFD from draining the battery over winter.)Just my 2 cents worth.

    That was my reasoning exactly-so I bought one of those marine switches w/ the red "key" and installed it on the Pos terminal. Worked great; till one day at the ramp I turned the key on and nothing. Kept fiddling with it and when it finally made contact I heard a little pop and then my MFD display was all f**cked up. So I say probably safer on the Neg......
