Power distribution block write up
Ok so this is my first write up, I'm going to try and keep it relatively short and simple.
I love electeonic gear and I get tired of having all these freaking wires going to the battery or fuse block for power. I ran across a thread when I had an fj cruiser and this guy wired in a marine fuse block and used it for power. Looked like an awesome idea and made under the hood and adding new accessories easy as pie.
So I started with three auto relays (12v 30A) and wired three of them in parallel using 6 guage wire rated to handle 65A. This should allow for the relays to handle up to 90A, plenty! I also fused it right after the battery with a 60A fuse to be safe. I ran the wire through the firewall and attached it to a blue sea fuse block and screwed it to the firewall right behind the brake pedal. Grounded the other side of the block near by and ran the ground for the relay coil there as well. Then I only had one wire to run to the fuse panel for power with key on. I think it was the trailer something another, nothing major. Maybe fuse slot 28 I think.
Now I can easily attach new items such as my flash light charger, power inverted, gps, audio amp, reverse lights,.... Whatever and it allows me to fuse each circuit independently!!
I think its pretty self explanatory but ill be glad to answer any questions or clarify anything!
