Adding to the 'two schools of thought' comment.
If you store boat in the water, pumps should always be 'live'. Wiring thru the isolator switch means that one battery will still need to be 'On' which may not be desirable...
For trailered boats, switch should allow you to 'disconnect' all power and not have any drain on batteries. I store small boat on trailer/lift without the plugs in, so no need for live pumps... Note: This boat has the 'automatic' pumps which cycle periodically to check for water rather than using a std float switch.

I subscribe to the theory that the only 'wrong way' to wire/setup dewatering is for it to fail in a predictable scenario...
