    Finally got it installed! So a few pointers to those that are looking to add a Power Tray to their truck.

    I assembled the components, i.e, 6 circuit Blue Sea aux fuse panel and the Blue Sea circuit breaker, prior to installing. I did that so I could put a small drip of locktite on the bolts. I also measured, and measured again, the heavy hots and ground so I could wrap and shrink wrap without having to do it under the hood, glad I did. I also left enough of the light bar harness and relay wiring that I could pull the three tray bolts and have some play in the wiring to lift out of the way if needed. The two fender bolts and the brace bolt are tight spots, just have to be patient and take your time.

    So I choose the 6 circuit Blue Sea cause I’m not adding a bunch of extras to my truck and the bolt holes for that aligned width wise. I left the upper two holes exposed and drilled another hole centered to those to mount my relay under the tray. Cleaned up pretty nice and although this wasn’t a cheap project I’m pretty happy how it all turned out.

    A quick question for the experts here. I'm thinking of using an ML-RBS in place of the ML-ACR in a single battery set-up as a power cut-off for the winch. Installed on the Off-Grid battery tray.

    Neither unit seems to be rated for under-the-hood operating temperatures. Has anyone with the ML-ACR ever experienced any sort of failure of either? Including a failure that might be attributed to heat?

    Thanks!

    P.S. I've never read of a problem and therefore don't anticipate any. Additionally as a simple power switch compared to what you guys are doing with the ML-ACR seems like a total "non-problem". But thought I would ask since I'll be integrated with Power Tray, Switch Pro, winch, etc. Everything except a second battery.

    im curious if I purchased a blank tray, would a twin ARB compressor fit there? My plan was for the top of the fuse box, but this looks nice if it would work!

    Got my RTMR tray yesterday. Looks great. I was impressed with how professionally Maverick runs his business.

    Looks like I'm one of the few people that didn't want to go with the SwitchPro or Spod (give me good ol' switches and relays any day), so if anyone has some pics of their RTMR install I'd love to see them. It'll be a few weeks before I get seriously into this. Need for it to warm up a bit and quit raining/snowing/sleeting/whatever else. In the mean time, I'm going to be looking into powder coating or anodizing.


    Who is the tall, dark stranger there?
    Maverick is the name.

    Gamblin' is his game...
