On metri-pak, cool. I used that trailer junction box instead of plugs, but plugs are much nicer.

I wasn't setup for Metric-pak and didn't feel like doing all the research to figure out what is...

Yeah, I get it. You are welcome.
If I did mine again, I'd have used one bussman box in the cab and one on the frame rail. Much smaller and neater than traditional fuse box.
