I'm going to be wiring up a switch panel composed of 4 switches soon. (3) SPST and (1) DPDT.
there will be 3 wires always hot, and 6 ground wires. I considered using a small busbar, but space is limited behind the dash. If I can make a proper connection, is it acceptable to merge like wires together in order to limit the amount of wires in the bundle?
for the power wires, I would just put 2 tails on each the blade terminals. Probably the same idea for the 3 SPST grounds, and the 3 grounds on the DPDT, then just merge the 2 grounds into 1 main via butt connector.
I'm thinking 18g wire, with 16g for the main power and ground. they will be running of an aux fuse panel mounted where an Spod source would be placed.
Also, does my rough diagram here appear correct? the switches from left to right will be driving lights - fog lights - winch power - winch in/out.
edit: I think the DPDT switch will be configured so that the brown and orange wire should be switched. also found a picture example of what I am referring to:
