Default Key Switch 12v (accessories)

I have the Off/On/On key switch for my TXT. I am thinking of changing the function of the switch to what is shown below.

Position 1: 12v accessories on
Position 2: 12v and 48v on (full run mode)

I currently don't use the "headlight" position on the key switch since I replaced the lights with LEDs.

Are there any advantages (or dis-advantages) to hooking the key switch up this way? Will I really notice a difference in battery draw if I have everything on vs. just the 12v stuff and the cart is not moving?

can we assume you have a 12v DC converter hooked up through the key switch to run your accessories??

That's exactly how I have my key switch wired.

I wanted to be able to use my 12v accessories (radio/lights/etc) without having the cart in 'Run'. I can't think of any disadvantages.

Sorry, yes I have a 12v converter hooked up. It's currently hooked up to turn on when the whole cart turns on.

The two set of contacts in a keyswitch with lights probably have the same voltage and amp ratings, so swapping the circuits they control should be a problem.
