Also been there with a red Blue Sea switch like the one in the photo. This may have been my fault with the switch being undersized, but one of the posts in the switch melted. I was using it between my house bank and the inverter/charger, so it was carrying a lot of amps. I neglected to check the capacity of the switch when I installed it, although battery switches are expected to be pretty robust. Anyway, I went up in size to a gray Blue Sea switch of the same design, only physically bigger. No problems with that one.
