In the refuse industry, which I've been in for over 20 years, the battery disconnect is one of THE most important components on a truck.

Two things:
1. Use a Flaming River Disconnect.
2. Cut the negative side.

Over the years these two things have been proven in the industry to stop battery drain, vehicle fires, and actually lengthen battery life.

IMO, going to the effort of curing a voltage leak with a bodge fix is more work than simply running down the source of the leak.

Especially if you don't eliminate the usual suspects first -- ie bad alternator.
