Alternate fuse or power block

I havent seen anything on this, and I know some of you have done it because of all the accessories guys have on their prowlers. I am thinking of ways to hook up a separate fuse block, or power block to support other acc. like lights, and whatever. What I would like to do, is set up an alternate power source for lights, winch, the heater, radio, and I was just looking for ideas on where, and what type of fuse block anyone has fabbed up. Any suggestions would be appreciated, let me know what you've got. And another question I had, was how much draw can we put on these without it being too much? I saw a posting for the alternator, would I be able to apply that to mine, sorry, yeah, I have an 06 650 h1. I would like to run the hid headlights at some time, light bar and so on.

You can get small fuse blocks from summitracing.

I put one on my xt. in conjunction with a battery isolater and aux. battery. It worked very well for aux lighting, winch, stereo, etc.

Make sure you get something that is marine quality.

2009 Prowler XTZ 1000 with a few modifications. Needs paint & powder coating.

That front box is water resistant not water proof. Some silicone greese on the terminals will help. If you put your battery up there were do you put beer? Lol

lol, good point cat- got have your priorities, beer comes first....I do like the idea of having a second battery, and If you were to mount the fuse lock up high under the hood, you wouldnt have far to go with the wiring to the toggles either if you put them on the dash. How would it have to be set up so that the alt charges both tho? I guess I could look that up online.

i put a battery isolator next to the stock battery,a new small battery as well as the fuse block on the driver side of the storage compartment. The stator kept both batteries charged and i ran a stereo, lights, and the winch from the aux battery. Ya the winch only is used in emergencies, but the lights and stereo, all the time. Point being, the primary battery is used mainly for starting the car, the accessories are run from the aux battery, so you can always get started. tada

Thumbs up

That's just what I was talking about PB, Is there any way you could post a pic or 2 when you get a chance? Or even email them to me if you want. That is the exact setup I was thinking of...Thanks again PB
