I have a wake tower with tower lights, the tower lights pull all the time because of a keyless relay. It drains the battery in a few days - I bought a battery cut off switch for the negative but wondered if I ran it through the accessory switch, would that switch keep it isolated off the battery when not in use??

The switch should break the circuit and be a complete disconnect from the battery. How do you have the lights wired if there is no switch? I have three sets of tower lights hooked up, four forward, two back and two cockpit lights. All three sets of lights have their own switch and in line fuse. I also have a battery selection switch that I turn off to completely cut power to everything on the boat when not in use.

I bought the raw lights that monster tower uses, drilled and tapped them on top of my infinity speaker mounts - they have a key fob on/off with a relay. no switch is required. I will test the accessory and figure out if I can do that
