Fuse Box

So I wanted to have power in the back of the CT but also didn't want a bunch of sloppy wires zip tied to the roll cage so I started a project to clean up the wiring and provide for a fused system that was expandable in the future. Here is what I came up with.

Ran welding cable from a circuit breaker in the battery box. Power all from secondary battery. Entered the rear cargo area and hooked into power distribution blocks. This way the compressor has a nice clean feed of 2/0 gauge wire and then off to the "fuse box"

I then used bulkhead glans to create a waterproof in/out to a pelican box

These connect to a blue sea 12 station fuse box. Click image for larger version

Then out to the devices that need power. This will allow for fused power with each device on its own circuit. Also allows to easily add a circuit.

Since the box is tucked away I wanted to be able to access it easily so waterproof quick disconnects were put in place out side of the box, all hidden behind the box when installed.

I also am using the kicker pxi50.2 iPod controller which has a faceplate to allow for remote control of the iPod/iPhone which is weather resistant and has big buttons easy to see when bouncing alongClick image for larger version

Great work so far! I implemented similar strategy for powering my rear cargo area. What's your source for the weathpak connectors and which crimper did you get?

I found them on amazon but I think it is just weatherpack.com. as for a crimper I just hand folded the tail part and then used a needle nose to crimp it down. Guess we will see how it works
