Hey guys,

Back at it again after a couple of year hiatus, and ready to get my cooler built.

Still a newbie, so just wanted to check that my idea of the wiring is more-or-less correct.

Any suggestions or corrections from the more experienced are appreciated! Thanks

If your using a lighted switch don't you want to install it on the + side. I thought you always want to cut/break the power

I will probably be using a lighted rocker switch. I had my switch on the negative side because I recall reading somewhere that it was "better" for some reason, but I may very likely be mistaken.

So fuse on everything, got it. I appreciate it!

I always put my switches on the negative side, unless they're lighted.

Your wiring diagram is sound, it will work perfectly with the way you have it configured.

Appreciate it!

Cant wait to get this badboy started. Still need to get my batteries and head unit, and I should be good to go.

Planning to run 2 16ah batteries, one on either side-wall.
