The main power feed for the top pump from the battery goes through a circuit breaker behind the LH kick panel.. You would want to run a heavy (#12) wire from the outlet of this breaker to a new switch in the trunk. I don’t know the nomenclature of the switch but it would have a single input, two outputs and a spring return to off. Then two #12 wires to tee into the wires on the pump—or to a T-shaped connector to replace the present one right at the pump. Being Lucky, you should not worry about a failure of the top switch—problems with the pump, cylinders, linkage are more likely and new a new and parallel electrical systems won’t help that.
An even more secure system would bypass the circuit breaker and start at the big connection bolt on the starter relay, running all new #12 or #10 wire through a new circuit breaker to the new switch in the trunk.
Or just throw a big tarp and bungees or cords in the trunk to protect the interior in case of simultaneous failure of the top-raising system and a deluge.
