Keep blowing 20 main and 20 Acc Fuses on 2012 Sportsman 500

I was trying to install the wiring on a winch on my week old '12 sportsman 500 ho and it didnt go so well so disconnected everything and restarted and realize I have a whole other issue all together not concerning the winch. i wanted to make sure my twelve volt was working for my tire compressor.I kept blowing fuses with the winch wiring and after i gave up with the wire install I had taken the fuse out of the 20 acc to the 20 main when i took the quad out for a run yesterday because i didnt have another 20 fuse. so i was running fuses in only 3 out of the 4 slots. the 12v didnt work i assume because there wasnt a fuse in the 20 acc slot. then finally just now i went to the store and got more 20 fuses and put one in the 20 acc slot thinking that the 12v would work now. Instead the 20 main fuse made a snap sound and blew out as i tried to turn the ignition on and no power to the quad. nothing from the winch is hooked up i disconnected everything. Everything is back to how it was before i installed the winch what could i have done? When i take out the 20acc fuse and put it in the 20 main and the quad starts up but the 12 v wont work. i tried to put in a new 20 fuse into the acc fuse slot while the thing was running (stupid i know ) and the thing started sparking and crackling. too much power through the 20 acc slot? i dont what could be the issue i have all the wiring back to how it was when i got it stock before the winch install and there is nothing obvious like wires touching metal/ negatives connected to positives etc. any thoughts? where im at there is no dealer so its not like i can take it in and have them diagnose it. : ( PLease help

The drive fuse sends power to the winch and the ADC/AWD COIL. THE acc fuse sends power to the pod acc and bulk acc . They both are powered by the chassis relay when the ignation is turned on. If your were getting arking when acc fuse was inserted then the chassis relay was jumping in and out due too a short in the acc circuit too ground and possibly damaged . So your acc line is shorted too ground somewhere. and the chassis relay is possibly damaged

sounds like you have a short somewhere. You need to go back through your wires and make sure everything is connected properly. Also ensure that there is not a cut in the wire and causing it to short out to the frame.
