1) The MB Aux. Battery option is designed for a 40A load/draw. Its components may not be adequate for your increased bank capacity nor load placed on it.

2) The rule and priority to maximize protection is to place circuit protections (fuses, breakers) as close to the power source(s) as physically possible. Sometimes this means fuses at both ends of wiring line.

PS... I am PM'ing you with my PayPal acct and invoice/retainer details.
