Hello,

Im starting my installation of my EB box. I've gone over the diagrams, but worried about messing things up.

-im not very clear on where the switching wire needs to be connected

-the diagram shows a 20 or 30 fuseholder cable near the battery. what do i put in?

Have you looked at the Eastern Beaver install page?

Installation


He has nice picture tutorial there. I just ordered mine since I just electrified my tankbag. I was thinking of installing the box under a side panel as I have a tire repair kit and compressor under the seat.

If you'd like, I'll do a lot of photos of my install here...but it won't happen until at least Friday.

First time you have to start replacing blown fuses, especially along side the road somewhere, you're going to find out why that is a really bad idea.

I'm also in the process of mounting a fuse panel (in my case, a Blue Sea that I already had, but with a harness from Eastern Beaver).

I was going to mount mine up front as well, as everything I have will be up front, so I figure why run all the wires back to the seat tray instead of running one to the front? But after looking at it all weekend, I think I'm going to put it under the seat like many have suggested, as there really isn't a clean and dry place to mount it while still getting to the fuses in an emergency.

So, now I need to run 3-4 sets of wires back to the seat tray, and this is how I figure I'll do that.



These guys have 8" and 48" male and female SAE plugs and wires. I'll run 4 48" males from the fuse block to the front (including a spare), and on all my accessories I'll tap the 8" female onto the existing wire. The 4-foot cables are only $3, and the 8" ones are $2. It's 16AWG wire, which is heavier than any of my accessories.

Then, I can switch around the plugs in the future if I need to (I'll number each of the 48" cables so that I know how each one is fused), I can run one of the SAE's into my tankbag if I want, and I can get a bunch of SAE to Powerlet or Cigarette adapters as well.
