    Default Working out electrical

    I'm finally digging in to planning the wiring.

    I'd originally purchased a dual-bus fuse holder; I was planning on 1 bus being for everything connected to my main battery and 1 bus for the aux battery accessories. But I hadn't really considered how to handle splitting the Accessory and Ignition circuits. But, I believe I've figured out how to manage this using the build in relays. Let me know what you guys think. I'd do the same thing for the Accessory output wire from the ignition switch. For splitting wires I'll be using Metri-Pack splice kits which can do up to 1 in to 5 splices that can easily be changed without cutting or soldiering wires.

    I think those are commonly known as weatherpack connectors. They are great you can get them in almost anything and you can get kits too.

    Fascinating little bit of history on connectors I just learned: http://www.hotrod.com/articles/three...iring-systems/

    Metri Pack is the modern brother of Weather Pack which is the weather-sealed version of the original Packard standard connectors...

    Difference between Metri Pack and Weather Pack is primarily that the Metri Pack terminals are flat blades, while the Weather Pack terminals are round tubes.
