Here's a variation of David Shealey's placement of the Blue Sea fuse block. The fuse block is resting in a polycarbonate "saddle" that fits securely between the frame rails, over the battery. The rear of the "saddle" holds 6 relays, and the whole tamale is attached to the accessory harness via Packard 6-conductor connectors (2) and 2 @ Packard single conductor connectors for the battery + and -. The system is entirely self-contained, and removes in just a few seconds; the main accessory relays and fuses are in 1 place and battery access is not impeded. The low amp electronics (GPS, radar, Sirius, tire pressure monitor) are wired into a sub panel in the nose, which is energized by the "master" relay, which is one of the six on the Blue Sea/relay package.
I'm sure there are many ways to hook-up the accessories.....this has worked for me for the last 2 years.
