Accessory fused power feed - my way

This is a follow on from a request on another thread.


OK, I needed to power my auxiliary 12Vsocket and USB ports and rather than run a plug down from the factory connector under the tank, down to where I installed my device, decided to splice into the main 12Volts supply where it feeds into the back of the fuse block. Two brown wires split the load across various components of the Bobbers electrical circuits via fuses. Ensure you select the top brown wire.


From our local electronics store in the automotive section, purchased a crimp splice (yellow) and a mini-fuse with LED in-line cable. Most of what I did is self explanatory from the pix. No soldering, no cutting needed, just some heavy pliers.

Very familiar with that type of splice connector with the knife blade that splits both sheathes. Mainly used in automotive and high voltage connections. They make a similar marine splice like that and would prefer that to this. They have a prefilled sealant incorporated in the splice. In this case, I would fill all voids with silicone caulking to ward off water/moisture.



Very good photos that explained the exact install. Very well done!

BTW, did you splice into a switched or always-on supply?
