    Lightbulb Accessorie Power Distribution Panel

    Ok guys I'm toying with the idea of installing a power distribution panel for accessories like the Bilge pump, Gauges, etc. I just dont like the idea of having a bunch of accessorie wires crowding the battery terminals. thinking of geeting a panel from West Marine with a cover on it and somehow having it powered when you connect the lanyard any info would help. Thanks.

    that's a good idea. You can use a relay to power it up. Tap into a purple wire to power up the relay with the lanyard.

    I was just gonna say relay, DO NOT pull all that power through the factory wiring....Get the right parts to make it, using GM weatherpak connections, etc...

    Exclamation

    Ok guys I've managed to mount the distribution block up front under the hood in a storage compartment and mounted the fuse in the glove compartment, I'm working with is going to be a max draw 30 amp system. Yeah I know thats a lot of power draw but my safety line will be at 20 amps. I forcee the bilge pump, 2-3 gauges and a bilge blower all hooked up to the distribution block. I'll be grounding the distribution block to the engine or the battery. Here's were im stumped and I need help. I dont want to just tap onto any purple wire for power to the distribution block but would rather add some pins to the skis distribution block and add a fuse there. I 've read were some guys have used the spots from were the VTS would be powered at but since this is a GTX Ltd 07 it doesnt have a VTS power setup. I search for a good time yesterday for pin connectors so that I can put them in the distribution block and go this route and got me a PN. My question is has anyone gone this route before to power up their accessories and what was your approach. thanks for any help.
