Question Seeking advice on adding 12V & USB plug and Pat Walsh Stebel horn kit.

Hi All,

I'm a new owner of a 2012 Wee Adventure bike and the first farkles I want to add are an integrated 12V plug/5V USB plug on the bars and a Stebel horn kit from Pat Walsh. The problem is that I have no idea how to go about this and have zero electrical knowledge. But, from what I've read so far, it sounds like it's advisable to connect to a switchable source to prevent accidental battery drain and that some sort of fuse box or something would be handy.

That said, I've noticed a bunch of folks have the Eastern Beaver PC-8 fuse panel. I also noticed that they offer a 3-circuit option for about half the price.


Currently I'm only adding the horn and power plugs and may add additional lighting down the road. Would the PC-8 be what I need? Is there anything else I need to have to get set up?

How easy is it to install these types of things? Again, I know nothing about this type of stuff (yet) and really would hate to screw up my bike! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
