    Fuse Block, Where to Mount?

    I just purchased a fuse block like the one in the link below. I will be wiring my various accessories to it soon. Has anybody used one of these? my RZR buddy heavily recommends it. Where all did y'all mount the extra fuse block? Any info would be greatly appreciated. BTW, I bought the 6 circuit with negative bus.

    I put mine in what was formerly called a glovebox. I mean the center cubby has plenty of storage. I find this works well for fuses and relays. You may notice i'm only running one acc off it so far but i planned for expansion.

    Thanks Barstool. I think that's where I'm going to mount mine. I wonder if there's any good way to seal up that box though?

    I wouldn't worry about sealing it up unless you are going to be doing the submarine thing :P
    If you think about it, under the hood of a car there are plenty of relays, fuses, and connectors that are hardly in a sealed up spot. They generally work for a good 10 years before any issues occur, IF any do. You can even buy a tube of electrolytic grease to dab on all the connectors, and fuse terminals in order to fend off corrosion. It can be found at a friendly auto parts store for a couple dollars. Now i may be rather relaxed about it but i am an automation technician for an energy company and spend plenty of time working on lots of 24VDC automation components in the oil gathering system. Believe me when i say that you don't have much to worry about. Ive seen some pretty corroded connectors still chugging along.. sometimes completely submerged.

    If you were worried about it, you could use some silicone caulk but i'd leave drain holes, because moisture WILL get in, might as well leave it a way out.

    update:

    I plan on mounting my fuse box behind the dash as AJKelly showed. I tried the glove box but it was too cramped with all the wires and i was afraid of drilling too many or too big a hole through it. Now i have a new problem, Christmas brought me a bluetooth stereo system and i have no idea where to mount the amplifier that came with. Has anyone mounted an amp on their Wolvy?

    Very nice wiring job, AJKelly. I have the same Blue Sea Systems box to install. What gauge wiring did you end up using for the positive and negative feed?
    I am thinking of mounting mine on a plastic base and having it sit above the battery, centered between the two rubber battery hold down straps so I can still access the battery as well as access the fuse block.

    I put mine on the left side just behind the battery box.

    Mine is mounted behind the battery, under the intake. I used the same type block that Pudge66 used
    AJKelly, my concern with your mounting location would be ease of access. Can you get to if you were to blow a fuse on the trail?
