I am installing some lighting and fog lights to my 1800 wing. would like to put a aux. fuse block in the saddlebag but i dont see a place to pick up power at the main fuse block (where to tap on to ) or is it best to come off the battery to a relay than to the fuse block but that way it would always be hot. how about a little help here . I was told I have to put a isolatoe block on so not to mess up the comp. (whats up with that,or what is it) can use a little guidance here tks. Tom

It would be best to use an isolation relay. Power the relay from the Acc. terminals in the fuse block area. I had several circuits; heated clothing, grips, mp3 and other items wired through that relay. I finally bought the Electrical Connections power panel and wire though it. Looks much neater. You may want to consider the same? God Bless!

Tulsa has a fuseblock also. Doesn't come with a relay but is half the price. If you don't know how to wire the relay so the fuseblock is not hot I guess you better buy the Electrical Connection one. It comes with a relay and instructions I think. Good luck. John

I ran one wire from the battery to my fuse blocks to keep the battery area clean. The aux terminal on the OEM fuse block powers all relays. Ground block is wired from a terminal on the right side of the engine. From the fuse blocks I ran thru relays for some things, none for others. Depends on what you want on and when. My fuse blocks where about $6 each at my local electronics shop.
