Default wiring in the gerbings jacket, & gloves

Probable later today I will be at the point of near completion of my aux fuse box wiring, the question I have is the gerbings acc power plug comes with an inline fuse for battery connection, I am planning to connect the acc power plug to my fuse box, should I cut the inline fuse out and wire it to the fuse box, or make a jumper to put in the there ans not cut the wire, still have to cut off the end battery eyelet connection.

I just left my inline fuse in place. It doesn't hurt to have more than one fuse in there. I used a higher amp fuse in my fuse block so if anything blows, it will be the inline one first.

Controller is a good idea. you need the connection point to be down on the left side below the seat right?

Either way works, clip off the eye terminal and wire with two fuses or clip off the fuse if the wire is long enough. Usually neater is better, so remove the fuse holder. Leaving the eye terminal in place and adding a jumper will work OK if you adequately insulate the eye, but neater is better.

Keep your wiring simple, doesn't mean that you may not have several outlet ports for accessories and doesn't mean you may not have several direct accessory hookups like heater grips, etc. What I personally like is all my fuses in one place and easy to get to, like under the seat with each circuit on its own, this way if a problem ever occurs it's easy to locate which circuit it is. Sometimes dual fused is not easily to do away with, like some GPS's and other electrical gadgets may have the fuse in the accessory plug, you may not want to cuts this plug off, I probably would cut it off either.
