What part of this looks like a fire hazard?

The quality of components and interconnect seems adequate. Nothing the the matter per se with this part of it.

What I would be concerned about is the potential for overload, given the number of circuits here. Be sure to add it all up, and feed this panel through an appropriate gauge wire, with adequate fusing.

When you say “Chinese made junk” you obviously mean like the 95% of electronics made in China?

Probably more like 100 if we count Taiwan.

Or like 90% (guess) of the consumer electronics we buy in this country. Lol
And don't forget: 70-83% of statistics are made up.

If it's truly a marine quality quality part, then I wouldn't be concerned about a fire hazard or anything (given adequate gauge wiring to it and relays as appropriate). But, geez, who needs switches for their spreader lights and so on in a Subaru? I mean, I've never even used mine. ;^) HPH



Subaru #8 is the best one yet ... although the Legacy GT Spec B and Gen 3 OBXT were pretty nice...and the STi was no slouch.

I've been searching for months for a switch for my macerator.
