    Prepping the materials for this summer. Already have the Blue Sea Fuse Block on the way (12 post, power only), need the battery cables and solenoid next.

    Now I just have to determine if I want to use 4 gauge or 1/0 gauge wire.
    I can order 25ft of either, with only a $10 difference. The longest stretch would be from the aux battery across the engine bay (~5ft)

    1/0 gauge

    Will be following this diagram for the batteries

    I got the fuse box installed with a 4ga wire supplying the power and accessories grounding to the frame. Just need to make up a dual battery box and do the big three as well.
