Installing a Key-Switched Power bus
On my 05 750 brute, I have several accessories that I want to tie into key-switched power:
Often I wanted but was unable to use multiple devices at the same time.
Simply feeding off the aux power port is not an option due to power requirements.
I currently have a 2-wire plug that I use to share the battery connector.
I was thinking of adding a "weather proof" busbar with a fused connection from the battery through a relay powered by the aux power port or preferably the source of its power.
1) Is this something that's doable?
2) Has anyone done this before and may have a schematic/parts list? I tried searching with no luck.
3) From a safety perspective: good idea? bad idea?
