Here is how I did my slide switch so I could move from two different power sources. It worked the way I thought it would, but until I actually connect things up I am never sure. The basic concept is that all positive (RED) wires come off one side of the switch and the negative (BLACK) wires come off the other side. It does not matter which is which, you just need to be consistent so you can duplicate the results on future projects. Each one of the power sources are at the ends of the slide switch. Again it does not matter how you connect it up, but each source needs to be opposite of each other. Configured this way the center prongs will be passed power depending on which end you have the slide positioned.
