    I picked up a 6 spade fuse block from my local auto parts house and put it on the wall of the box the ECU is in under the seat on the battery side of the box. I now can run several accessories off it and makes for a neat installation. Each spade terminal has it's own fuse. I use it for my Signal lights, cab lights and winch. The under the hood the switch must be on to have power to it and you are right only one pole is hot.

    It is a three pole block and they only made one hot. There is no ground and they have it grounded some place else. Keep mine depending on the amount of accessories running off it fusing may not be large enough to carry all the loads you are putting on it. That is why I went the fuse block route I did. Not only does it have a hot bar, but also a grounding bar.

    Exactly.. Lots of guys wire the 2 other lugs to the positive and negative on the winch relay. This gives you key hot, full time hot and negative.. Just remember that anything you hook to the full time hot must have a fuse of its own..

    Thanks for the redirect. I am wondering about pulling my amp and winch selinoid off the same line. Anyone know what size fuse that keyed post has on it??
