New fused line to air pump

The OEM line to the compressor was way to small for my liking. Also all the way to the front of the coach was quite a voltage drop.

I have run a 6 gage line from the house bank, and protect it with a 30 amp fuse. I have a relay by the compressor that still works off the line going back, and that is what supplies the power to the relay. This way no load on the OEM line and it still works on the ignition switch.

Here is a couple of shots of the set up.

Thought I had some shots of the battery and fuse hook up. Will have to get that from the home computer. Not on my Memory chip!
