    I'm curious as to if I should add a fuse inline between the battery and the solenoid? If so how big, 100, 125 amp? Just thinking it could save a fire if something shorts. Thanks

    If you do and I wouldn't, look for a 200 amp resetable breaker.

    ok thanks. was curious as i was looking at an older mm1 and it had breakers between the battery and the solenoid. I guess that #4 cable will work as the fuse.

    You don't need one. Never seen one either. That's like putting a fuse on your starter wire lol

    The only fuse I have on my setup is an inline fuse between the controller power wire and the fuse panel.This is my second truck with a mm2 setup and never had a problem with wiring
