Plan you your wire runs carefully. What may seem like an easy/short run may cause difficulties later or be in the way of servicing something else later on.I will be using this as my guide.
Probably over-engineered for my needs but this has turned into my hobby. I anticipate having questions. Comments welcome.
I wouldn't daisy-chain from the switchpro (It also says not to do that in the product docs). Run separate hot wires from the battery.I figured the best way to move this forward was to lay out everything on the floor and look at it every day. My first assumption is that if I disconnect the negative battery cable first and re-attach it last I will minimize the bad things that could happen. No audio cables will be used in the actual installation. The wrench represents the battery terminals.

The photos in the article don't show what the author actually did, see the stubby or no stubby section.
My proposed actions
1-Replace the black audio cable with a suitable cable connecting the breaker to the battery positive
2-Replace the black and red audio cable with a suitable cable connecting the breaker to the fuse block
3-Remove the stubby between the switch pro and the fuse block
4-This is the positive from the baja designs lights. The circular connector doesn't fit. I am going to cut off the connector, strip the wire and wrap around the screw. Or should I install a different connector?
I haven't done any electrical work so I would appreciate feedback from those more experienced about my proposed actions.
Makes sense. The 9100 has 4x 35A circuits, which is great. My single ARB shouldn't draw much more than 20A, and my light bars wont draw more than 10A per circuit. I'm pretty close to dropping the coin on the 9100 just to tidy things up more than anything.I think we are on the same page. I removed the stubby cable for clarity(first pic). So the fuse block would go directly to the breaker and then to the battery and be used for powering non-switched, always-on things like a usb port. Since I currently don't have any plans for powering anything non-switched I may just remove the fuse block (second pic) with the option of adding later.
