Teryx 4 Accessory fuse panel

Just starting to get everything together didn’t want to run any accessories through the stock wiring and risk overloading any circuit and void the warranty, so I am running a 60 amp circuit breaker into a 100amp split charge relay to my fuse panel Capable of 100amp max the reason for the relay is so that I can run this all by ignition and use 4 gauge wire to power everything. I made my own bracket and painted it wanted it to look as clean as possible. I know it may be a bit overkill but it shouldn’t be lacking supply power. In the near future as I install accessories I will add a second battery. So what’s everyone’s thoughts

GOOD job!
I am in process ordering the parts to do exactly the same thing this winter. Using
Blue Sea Systems ST Blade ATO/ATC Fuse Blocks
by Blue Sea Systems and main circuit breaker. (Amazon or Marine supplier) I am still looking at the location however. I may end up positioning the breaker , panel and accessory battery under the drivers seat. I intend to use a marine type smart charger which diverts the charging current to the battery that needs charging, Not there yet as I Need to talk to my electrician friend to figure out how to,
I have this Blue Seas fuse block in my fishing boat and it doubles as a buss bar.

I mounted to a 2’x6” piece of metal that’s mounted to a couple pieces of flat strap I used the 2 screws that are holding the fan shroud on to secure it all sanded it all down primed painted and clear coated

I did something very similar. One thing to note is since the red wire is connected directly from the battery to the Circuit Breaker, it will be hot at all times. The jumper to the relay on the passengers side will also be hot when the breaker is closed. IF the key is turned on and the relay is picked up, then the jumper from the relay to the fuse panel will be hot. I taped the connections to prevent anything from shorting the Positive side to ground and causing problems. Might even want to put some scotch coat (Liquid Tape) on the tape to make it splash proof. IF you need to work on the connections, a sharp knife will open the tape up and let you work on it. BUT, I suspect once it is taped there will be no need to untape it...

the one thing I did was put wire conduit between the battery and breaker to help prevent a ground not sure if you seen my other picture with the wires attached I love heatshrink but between my mounting plate and brackets is rubber to keep the the mounting surface from becoming a ground thanks for the input that’s the one thing I don’t want is a positive to ground

on the relay, I know the two large posts with the nuts are for the in/out of the hot wire, but for the 2 blade posts, which goes to the ground and which goes to the accessory hot?
