Secondary Switch

Ok I searched for this and could not find the answer. What I want to do is wire up 5 independent switches for the different lights that are going to go on my truck (Grille, hood, rear, bed, and rock). What I also want to do is have 1 covered switch that can switch them all on at once if the need arises. Now I think I have it figured out but I am not sure.

Would the load wire running to the relay be the wire to splice into. IE run 5 load wires from the Big Switch to the five individual load wires?

In my mind this works but to be honest I have pieced this plan together with little knowledge.

You could Up the fuse 7.5. Diodes isolate so other switches do not "activate" the neighbor relay. They sell bussed diodes for this application. http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/waytek/catalog224/#/44

That's a neat setup. I might use that for my emergency strobes.
