MUST place a circuit breaker or fuse on the positive side of the power source (batteries). It is recommended that a fuse be put on each battery near the battery on the positive side.

Great advice here - please make sure you use a fuse or circuit breaker as close to te + terminal as you can. I have had good luck with 30 amp mini blade fuses for a 12V PW and 20 amp for 6V batteries.



Yes it is a sickness ;-)

This is exactly what mine looks like using bullet connectors so I can move the fuses from one vehicle to another.

Well mine has less arrows and stuff drawn around it in real life ;)

You can also use that fuse holder, trim the rubber and insert the resetable circuit breaker in it.

Thanks for the pic. I'll have to pick up a fuse holder. I saw one the other day at the auto parts store. And LOL about the arrows and stuff in real life from jasncab!
