Wiring/fusebox help for auxiliary power socket by SpongeBob

Which fuse should I be looking for when wiring up an auxiliary power socket? I've not yet looked at the fuse board layout and neither have I had to wire anything up to the fuse box before so is it a simple job? In the past all my other projects have involved splicing into existing wires.

Simon the wires are already in the fuse box for you, I put them there. They are terminated in a connector block. You will just need to pick up a suitable earth from somewhere, I think there is one by the handbrake.

You just need to run some suitable cable, I think I used 30amp and link straight into the connector block and the other end to the accessory socket. I also piggy backed the illumination from the cigar lighter, but I dont think the accessory socket is illuminated on the one you have.

Colour doesn't matter, it's made of glass. To make room for it you just need a disc grinder ... :mrgreen:
