Auxiliary Battery Disconnect

The EA kit just has you bolting multiple ring connectors to the positive and negative terminals of the auxiliary 12V battery.  As I was working on different systems on the car, I had to bolt and unbolt over and over.  I realized that this was really inconvenient and also possibly dangerous if I needed to disconnect the battery in a hurry, like in a crash or fire.  Since I had used an Anderson connector on the charger output, it made sense to do the same for the auxiliary battery.  I crimped all of the incoming and outgoing wires into the connector pin to make everything nice and clean.  Oh and I put wire loom on everything in sight!
