I still use a rear disconnect switch, but I use a solid state battery disconnect module so that I only run a small 16 gauge wire for control to the disconnect switch. This way all the heavy cabling stays up front, resulting in improving electrical function and minimizing weight.
Funny thing is I just moved the battery to the back per recommendation of who made my harnesses and I just didn't do enough research to see what my other options were. I would say that it has felt very silly adding all the weight in cable. I am going to switch this per your recommendation and thank you for the tip. Do you have a recommendation for the solid state state disconnect module by chance?
