I am looking to add a power distribution block to the back side of my wet bay for when I use the portable macerator..

The way I see it, I can just jump the red wire to the RED side post of the inverter where the cable comes from the battery.... AND the black to the black side...

Correct ?????? Am I missing something?

Gotta verify the amperage load yet

Purchased #10 wire - that is what is called for

The macerator came with a 35amp inline fuse before the alligator clips.. I plan on installing another 35 amp fuse inline right before where the red wire will connect to the inverter.

Thought about those

If I understand where you are wanting to power this from I would call it the convenience center where you connect the fresh water line to, is that right?

If so, mine has a 12V light there. Perhaps the cable run from the batteries to the light are good enough for the load and length of run. If so you could just tap in there, yes with an inline fuse.

I would agree a proper connector are better than clamp on. I generally like small Anderson style connectors for low load, low voltage applications.

Joe, for my Flo Jet that connects to the sewer discharge I ran a twin 10 ga.line directly from the battery (with a 30 amp fuse installed at the batt) down the side rail zip tied to the propane line. It terminates in a plug near the sewer line where I plug in the macerator.It was easy to route the wire through the holes near where the propane cylinder sits.

I think that I have decided to get a 12v multi purpose jumpstart battery pack. This will serve me 2 purposes, hopefully get me out of a jamb, and power up the macerator if and when I use it...

running more then 15' for a 20 amp motor load at 12 volts DC a #10 is the bare minimum . I think your idea of a jump pack will suit your needs and you will keep it charged so in a emergency it will be helpful.
