Aux power/switch management kits for 3rd Gens?

I've searched a bit on the forums and there is a lot of chatter in later Gen's groups, but does anyone have any guidance for aux power distro and switch management kits? Looking for something functionally like the sPOD/Switch Pros stuff, but it doesn't need to be that fancy. Looking for a fused, scalable power point that fits well under-hood and a switch bank.....ideas?

Why's it have to be a "kit"? What kind of use (minimum) and how much do you want it to "scale" before you either swap out everything or run a parallel install?

Blue Sea fuseblocks tend to be the most common I see:

Blue Sea 5026 ST Blade Fuse Block w/Cover - 12 Circuit w/Negative Bus - 1 Year Direct Manufacturer Warranty - - Amazon.com

I have a 6-fuse version in my camper van, the linked is for a a 12-fuse version.

I run Specific, individual, switches as needed and Where needed. Makes "kits" worthless to me as that means all switches have to be in the same place and that doesn't work for me (I have switches in 5 different locations around my van, plus a few self-switched devices).


The more details you give, the better the suggestions you'll get. The more broad and generic the ask, the more generic the answer (like mine).

Haha my question was vague because I didn't know what I was talking about. I thought I would be mounting a fuse block to a surface myself but why bother? The Blue Sea link has opened my eyes - thanks! 6 fuses would be enough for the foreseeable future.

And there are some really good switches with fun labels for your dash. Thinking of expanding my accessories switches.

Yep - planning to use the knock-outs on the left side!
