    Does anyone know the max watts the aux switches will handle. I see the fuse size but not sure how many watts they will handle. Can aux 6 handle (5A fuse) handle a 240w led light bar?

    I’m no electrical genius but I’m going to say NO way. I recommend going with a separate relay if you are going to put the bar on that switch

    P=EI (power = volts x current) so a 5 amp switch with handle 60 watts at 12 volts and the 15 amp fuse is good for 180 watts.

    Several writeups in the lighting section... including max amps per switch, etc.
