    Running on offgrid dual battery setup and having a hard time securely fitting this 200A fuse on the starter battery side of the + cable. I have one on the other end so I was curious if it’s necessary or just recommended that you have on on either end.

    pictures for reference. Don’t mind all the other wires. I’m also trying to move over wiring for the winch and two light bars. I have a different 200A fuse with 2 ft of 1/0 wire that I will add instead.

    Ideally, you would just get another one of these

    But to make the blue seas you showed work, you’ll need a short cable with eyelets on the ends. Needs to be the same AWG as the main cable. A local car stereo shop or welding shop can help you out pretty cheap

    Okay that’s what I figured. It came with 2 fuses but it’s been trickY finding a good spot for the fuse to go since it already has two other fuses on it. Thanks

    It will most likely have to go here, sticking out towards the front of the truck.

    You may need to figure out how to get a little more slack in your new positive wire

    I ended up adding a washer to help fit it on there. Thanks!CF0A1727-1B90-43F8-96F2-6EB9815EABC0.jpgI never realize how dirty it is until it’s picture time
