Perfect information. Makes total sense. Excellent idea on the thermal breaker.

Thanks!

I'm getting my Westy ready to sell after 21 years. I'm going to miss it and this community!

On the 85 the fuses are up front on an aux bar next to the fuse block.

Thanks for the input about the battery ground. I'll check that. I'm going to get another ground tree and install that also.
