Thanks to you both!

So quick recap:

- Alternator fuse should also be a larger MRBF or ANL.

- Even with the large MRBF fuse on the house bank, I'll need another similar fuse at the POS bus to Perko battery selector switch.
Question: If the wire is the same gauge, wouldn't the MRBF at the battery protect it?
- Wire for battery monitor should be right on the battery post (makes sense).

And one last question for Maine Sail, what size battery cable did you end up using on that S34-I? I'm trying to decide that next.

Thanks again for your help! This is all new to me.
Cheers,
J
