    I was reading the specs on the small box.
    5 - position http://www.cooperindustries.com/con...r_distribution_modules/series_15300_rtmr.html
    vs
    10 - position
    http://www.cooperindustries.com/con...series_15400_rfrmrear-fedfuserelaymodule.html

    It handles 80amp per bus for a total of 160amps?
    vs the
    10 position/ 100amps per bus for a total of 200amps.

    so in comparison, yes, 2 smaller ones would handle 320amps. <- More than I would ever need.

    The 10 position will not even be close to maxed out with my power needs and plans.

    I'm always looking for cleaner ways to do things. Was waiting for Blue sea to get into the off road accessory market like this. Got tired of waiting. Then I got to see the blue sea fuse block with neg bus, spod, and an rfrm all at the same time. Made my mind up quickly. Really was surprised more people haven't mentioned them here before.

    a search turned up only a couple hits on here.

    Here is one where they modified the bottom for a 3rd bus/ negative bus.

    I'm not really sure what any of that does but that's some pretty cool stuff I'll follow this thread and maybe I'll learn something.

    Skygear,
    Curious how you'd wire the isolator without a second batt, wanting 12v ignition? Only allowing power to fuse box when ignition is turned on... :confused:

    I have an additional 500amp Isolator I could drop in there for the install. Also i do have dual batteries. Currently using the Blue Sea ML-ACR (ML-ACR Automatic Charging Relay with Manual Control - 12V DC 500A) and could wire into that without a problem. Since they are all switched though. I was just going to leave it hooked to constant power so I could operate them with the truck off.

    The way I would hook it into the ACR would be to just attach a second lug to the output side of the relay and attach the other end of the lug/wire to the positive side of the RFRM. That would still give me always on power but have it isolated from the main battery. <- In reality though. I am tapped into the second battery for the accessories as it is. SO this just isn't needed at this point. It already IS isolated.


    For anyone that does want this as an ignition on/ off circuit. You just tap into the accessory wire from the ignition under the hood and wire up an 200amp-250amp relay (used this number since the maximum rating for the 10 position RFRM is only 200amps[100amps per bus x 2], you generally want a little higher than the highest rating.). then of course, a terminal/ lug off the battery to the relay, on the in side, and a second one on the out for the power source to the RFRM. <- I believe that this is the method that SpeedRye used.
