In addition to a dual battery electric system, running a Power Distribution Center (PDC) in your General can also help the electric system perform as it should regardless of the withdrawal demand. PDCs provide many benefits. For one, they make sure that all your accessories are fused and relayed at a switch with the PDC being separately fused from the electronics of the vehicle, creating its own circuit. This makes it not only cleaner and easier to install new accessories, but also makes the electric system neater, safer, and easier to troubleshoot if an issue arises. The added benefits of running a PDC is that any accessory added will not affect any warranty issues due to your electrical system as they are on their own circuit. You can buy all the parts, switches, and circuitry to wire up your own PDC, but if you don’t know what you are doing, you can buy a preconfigured PDC. These power blocks are IP67 waterproof if done correctly, meaning they can be submerged without issue, and often use self resetting-mini fuses. If you want to build your own PDC for your Polaris General, make sure that the power to the block is controlled by a mechanical circuit breaker with amperage high enough to run the box at max power -- as a 200-amp manual 12v breaker ran after the battery inline with the PDC. This not only adds an additional layer of protection but also doubles as a way to disconnect power to PDC if needed in a pinch.
