    How and where did you mount your fuse holder for the big 3 or an amp?

    How and where did everyone mount the fuse holder for there big3 or there amp? They are supposed to be no more than a foot away from the betery right? If you could snap a pic to help me out that would be awesome as well.
    I am having alittle trouble finding a good place to install the fuse holder for the big3. I kinda feel dumb asking cause its pretty straight forward, but theres not alot of room to install it. I thought about double sided tapeing it to the side of the battery,but i dont know.

    Hey Tom... I just ran mine in between the airpump and the fuse box (when I still had my airpump)... Its not really a big deal to leave it kinda dangeling there, but its more for aesthetics then anything...

    yeah, i would kinda like it to look nice. maybe i will see if i cant tape it to the top of the air pump. i was also just thinking maybe i will see about getting a smaller fuse holder. the one i got from knukoncepts is huge. thanks

    How big is your wire and fuse? I think mine is an 8 gauge wire with 100 amp fuse, but its pretty big as well... Id probally see if you can drill a couple holes in the fuse box lid and screw it into place or just tape it onto the airpump...

    Any ideas what purpose the thin plastic thing with foam on the back that goes around the battery serves. if it does nothing i might just remove it and tape the fuse holder to the battery. the fuse holder fits to tight between the one ac line and the air pump.
