if you haven't yet put a fuse on the main power wire as close to the battery as possible, DO SO BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! some say within 18" (like your manual says), and others say within a foot... just make it as close as possible. i have my 120 AMP fuse about 8" away from the battery. after the fuse, then you can run the wiring to the back and use a simple distribution block if needed, etc... we can't stress enough how important it is to keep that fuse properly installed as close to the battery as possible!!!!
