Added all wiring diagrams to first post below pics

IMPORTANT UPDATE 10/06/2014: - Beware of your current setup!!!
So after having this setup for a few months I got bit by the cheap parts fairy. I left my RZR in the trailer for about 2 weeks without starting it. When I went back to it to pull it out of the trailer, I turned the key and nothing happened. Long story short, the battery was dead due to a constant 4mA draw from the relay. It forced me to replace my battery as well. My suspicion is that the relay went bad due to the constant beating it was taking. I now have an 80 amp Stinger Battery Isolator Relay on the way. The only downside to this, is now my fuse block circuit becomes an 80 amp max circuit instead of the 100 amp circuit it was previously. I will keep you posted as to the long term testing of this new Stinger Relay. Thanks to Richardson Performance for helping me diagnose this and getting me the parts I needed to fix it.

Over the past few evenings I have been working on installing my accessory fuse block under the hood. I ran a wire from my battery to a 100 amp circuit breaker. From there it goes under the center console (zip tied to the factory wiring harness) up to the larger compartment under the hood into a 150 amp relay. From the relay into my fuse block. The relay is triggered by an accessory wire from the 12v under the dash. Essentially, I will connect all of my accessories into the fuse block and run them to my relay bank (still on its way) to power the accessory. Also have Dunertunes 6 Switch Panel and Upper Corner Single Switch Panels to install. Only accessories to hook up at this point is the Sick-Stikz whip.

It was just a 100 amp circuit breaker from amazon. For around $12.

I have created a very basic wiring diagram for the above install and also one to illustrate how a dual battery setup might look.

You can also get these from most larger boating supply stores like West Marine, you will pay more than 12 bucks though but it will be water proof.

Yeah that looks like basically the same thing. Just be aware that if you use the same fuse block I did it has a 100 amp limit.

On your fuse block did you need a negative bus on it or not? There is two options one with an one without. If I understand your drawing it looks like you did not need a negative bus.

I did not get the one with the negative bus. However, I kinda wish I did, but I think space may have been an issue if I did. I remedied not having the negative bus by using the bolts that hold down the coolant reservoir. I just ran a negative lead from the battery to it just to make sure I had a good ground.
