Fuse Block Placement?

I've got one of the Blue Seas fuse blocks on order, due to be in this week. I've got several LEDs and a stereo that I've hooked up to some of the aftermarket lighted rocker switches that match the factory switches. Where is the best place to mount this fuse block? Down near the battery is an option and was also thinking about putting it up and behind the factory switch panel... Just tossing around ideas before it gets here... Thoughts?

I can take a picture of mine and post it for you I mounted mine to the left of the battery just below the net belt clip. My fuse block is a marine block with seperate fuses for each circuit. In this location it has been out of the way and really hasn't even gotten wet yet although I put the die electric grease on the connections and fuses. Or just remind me to show you this weekend.

How do you get to the back of the switch panel or the back of the glove box. Unlike a Rhino, it looks like a major task to get the front off.

To get behind the switch panel/center dash panel, all you have to do is remove the two screws that hold it tight on top of the dash, then there are two plastic retaining pins on the bottom left and right sides. The panel slides right out. To get behind the glove box, open the glove box, remove the black plastic trim piece directly above it by pulling it torward you. Once that trim piece is out, then there is two bolts, one on the left and one on the right that have to be removed, then the whole thing will slide out.

X2.

But I placed the Blue Seas 100 Amp circuit breaker just to the left of the Factory fuse block and my 6 circuit Blue Seas fuse box is mounted just below the battery.

I used four small 1 inch plastic spacers and stainless steel screws to space it away from the surface of the bulkhead plastic to allow me to more easily attach the wires to the terminal locations on the fuse block.

My mounting location for the fuse block may not be ideal for someone who muds or submerges their machine above the floor boards. I dont, so its not an issue for me and works great.

Here are pics of the Blue Seas 6 Circuit Fuse block and 100 amp Circuit breaker that I used for anyone interested in seeing what they look like up close.

Mine isn't in a good spot down by my battery either there's no telling how many time its been under the water and mud but hasn't bothered it. When It goes under water if I don't shut my fan off before going deep it blows the fuse. I keep a bunch of fuses cause I forget to shut it off sometimes. LOL that's my only issue. Not an issue for me though.
