How would I wire the switches to be able to turn the pump on OR off from any of the three locations

For two locations, you'd need SPDT switches and wire the same way a household "three way switch" works.  For three or more locations, you'd need two such three-way switches and then an additional "four way switch" for each additional location.  This is just a DPDT switch that has been wired in an X configuration; Google "four way switch wiring" to see how three- and four-way switches are wired and work together.

You could use a magnetic latching relay.  It would still require additional wiring and different switches.  I agree, not worth the trouble.

Wow great stuff. Knowledge is the power to change and make things work. Still digesting, but getting there.
Thanks,
Andrew.

My vote is for the pump pressure switch and on locale to control the pump. With the pump on and cycling off the pressure switch you will know if a small leak develops because the pump will cycle as the pressure drops.

On our maiden voyage we had  little problems with small water leaks. I found that a switch at the pump would have been useful. I used my fuse as a switch. Food for thought.

Thank you for all the input. I wired the pump in with just the one switch and relay. Left it hooked up and on all weekend and it works great. Turn the water on and hear the pump run, turn it off and the pump stops. I have been like a kid with a new toy because this is the first time I have everything working as it should on the plumbing and electrical.

Thanks for everyones help. Now with the battery bank cross tie, the 12v. from 24v. out of the SurePower, as well as the inverter all wired and functioning correctly, I feel like it all might actually work... wow!

This is all due to the help from this board, and I really appreciate it! I am going to read up on transfer switches or maybe something simpler, and attempt to get the generator tied in to all of this!

Andrew.
