So David, is there a difference in the Perko 2 battery switch that came in my boat and the blue seas 2 battery switch? I think I want to add a ACR this winter when I redo my stereo install and want to know if I need to buy a new switch

An ACR will work just fine when used in conjunction with a traditional 3-post 1/2/BOTH/OFF dual battery switch like the commonly used Perko brand or the Blue Sea 9001e.
The real advantage to the Blue Sea OFF/ON/Combine 4-post dual circuit plus 5511 over the traditional switch, is when there is an on-board charger in the scheme.

With one action, you can combine and isolate the loads from their source battery. Since the dual-circuit has 4 post, rather then 3, the ACR is isolated from the batteries when the switch is off, allowing the charger to properly charge and condition the battery banks. With the traditional 3-post switch, the ACR will end up combining the banks when the charger is on. This makes the batteries one large bank.

David and Joe,
The switch in the photo is a conventional dual battery switch.
The dual circuit switch in the diagram is a 5511e.
The conventional dual battery switch in the above photo cannot be introduced into the above diagram as is.
So, post up a diagram of how you would wire a conventional dual battery switch in conjunction with an ACR/VSR.
There are several methods but the results are different. Again, draw it out to see.
