Canadian Source for BlueSea Products

Just bought a BS 5025 fues distribution assembly from a store in London Ont - www.the resourcestore.ca. $39 CDN plus $8.53 to ship Cda Post. Ordered Monday - arrived Wed night. They handle an extensive amount of BS products and supplies, batteries etc for renewable energy.

Thought I'd share since Cdn sources can be hard to find at times.

Safe riding

They are readily available at marine supply stores across the country. Might be hard to find a marine supply store for you inland types

If we want to hook up the box so that it works with the ignition, what is the relay we get?

I'll have to check under the hood. In my case, the 5025 is a straight swap out for a homebrew I made up last summer when I installed the Stebel . I like the 5025 since it integrates + and - busses in same case and offers a small degree of protection. I use the relay kit from eastern Beaver originally so will have to look up the specs when I get a minute.

Any automotive relay will work. Waterproof is good.

This is pretty handy:

That's great, Heavy!

But if I go into a Canadian Tire store and just ask for a relay isn't there some particular power ranges or something I should be asking for? Do any of them come with a socket like the kit I got with my Stebel to simplify the wiring? I know I sound pretty dense here but I don't know the proper terms (I just sell cars, I don't make them or fix them!!! ;-)

Thanks,

Tom

Rather than CTC, go to someplace like NAPA. Ask them for a heavy duty, 12 volt relay. It should be rated for something like 30/40 amps. Typical applications are driving lights and stuff like that. I don't know what sort of socket you got with your Stebel but its easy enough to just use crimp-on connectors for your wiring. Again, West Marine has insulated/protected connectors so you don't need to worry about shorts or anything. Something like these...

insulated connectors

Auto Relay

Hey V-Tom,

As Heavy said, go to the Napa in Newmarket, its actually just around the corner from Newmarket Suzuki. (Its the street behind the dealer). They even have connectors with heat shrink on them so once you've connected the relay you can seal them tight.

Its pretty straight forward, we can always get together so you can see how I did it. I have the Blue Sea fuse box as well. So far I have a 12 volt outlet and my heated grips connected.
