Tacoma electrical box

01 June 2017

Any extended use of a truck will involve electrical accessories, and it's important to be able to easily (and properly!) connect them.

I started off with a DeWalt tool box, which I secured to the bed rail of my canopy. In this box I mounted:

  • Two BlueSea fuse boxes.
  • Two Bussman circuit breakers (one for each BlueSea fuse box).
  • Two sets of three 12v sockets/accessories.
  • Zamp 2000W pure sine inverter.
  • Milwaukee Multi-charger.

Power itself was provided using 2ga wires coming from the battery under the hood. One of the fuse boxes was powered by the house battery, the other by the starting battery.
