So I'm ready to hook up some accessories and I've done research and figured I'd share my findings here before I go ahead and order everything.
I plan on installing a 50" curved LED light bar, mini light bar for the front bumper, 2 rear pod LED lights, 4 amber strobes (front/rear), 6,000 pound winch, and power angler for the plow. That's all I plan on adding but would like to have room for future expansion, like adding a radio someday.
From what I read, it's best to run like 4 ga or 6 ga wires from the battery to the terminal block under the hood and then from there run positive wire to a 80 amp circuit breaker
and then run the postive wire to a Stinger SGP38 80-AMP Battery Isolator and Relay
and run the battery postive wire from the relay then to a fuse block, looking at the Blue Sea 6 circuit
and have the ground wire go from the terminal block to the fuse block. Then I would run a wire from 12v ignition source from the terminal block to the 80 amp replay so the relay only triggers when the key is on.
All the lights would be wired to the fuse block and have their own circuits.
The winch would obviously be wired directly to the terminal block (from the winch contactor) to bypass the circuit breaker and relay so it can use all the amps it needs. Though, I am unsure how I would wire the power angler for the plow. I haven't looked that far into that yet.
For the accessory wiring for the lights, I would run 14-2 gauge marine grade jacketed wiring. Everything will be soldered and heat shrinked.
From what I read, this should work and should be safe. I just want to make sure I do it right to keep my rig from burning up lol.
Any advice would be awesome. Thanks. Maybe I'm a bit overkill but can't hurt to be safe.
