Default Re: 24-48 to 12 Volt Converter

I got the lights to work, but I'm not done yet. In my situation, I had to introduce 12 volts to the blue/white (+12v) wire and black wire (ground) found in the unused 9 pin connector. What I'm going to do is: Install a fuse block in the battery box (somewhere) and run wires to that for all my 12 volt devices.

I plan on getting a 30 amp fuse block, as that is the max output of the converter.

My precedent has an oem light harness, so alot of the information online, did me no good. I'm glad I went with my gut and not some other instructions...Nothing melted

I'll put pics up when I'm done.

Stevec3201,

Your updates are giving me an education. I presume the 30 amp fuse will help to safeguard against
any excess voltages. Anyhow, I look forward to the pics.

Your converter shows 25 amps and most fuses blow at higher ratings then what they list. I'd start out with a lesser fuse like a 20 amp and see if it does the job first. I have a 15 in the original Blue fuse holder and my block is fused according to what I have running from it, light fused at 10, cigar lighter at 15, etc. My converter is a 20 amp.

Lookup "fuse block" it's a device just like the fuse box in your car. The entire box is rated for so many amps and it will supply many 12 volt devices on there own circuits. I will mount it in a central area and wire all of my devices to it. I think it will be best for my setup.

I'm really pleased with the way the converter was installed in the bagwell attached to the rear seat bottom I still have the space for storage and the converter should stay dry. The converter is sealed very well and sports a stainless steal cover with aluminum fins. More updates to follow, I just need to visit a store that has lots of electrical stuff. Any suggestions?

I don't know of any. A web search may yield some possible leads. You have piqued my curiosity. I'll surf the internet to see what's out there.

Thanks, that 2nd link has just what I'm looking for. I'll put one in the dash and one in battery box under the controller housing

You are correct (good catch). I will run a 20 amp in-line fuse to the converter. I will also run with two fuse blocks. One mounted in the center cover in battery box (like yours), and one mounted in the dash behind one of my little doors. I'll need to power the lights, stereo, cigar lighter/12vdc plug, volt meter and leave room for future expansion. I'll put a 6 fuse block in the dash and a 4 fuse block in the battery box.
