Hi Marc, Estancia came with a blower switch on the engine panel, connected to the accessory side of the ignition switch.  
I’m with Steve by not connecting it directly to ignition. I would install a esperaste switch somewhere else on the boat.

One from the blower to the engine and one back? Or are there two blowers? I only see one on Image on the port side.
