Accessories connections to Battery

I have 2013 850 HO EPS, Which has a lot of aftermarket accessories that are connected to the battery. Includes winch wiring, LED lights wiring, Etc. This is filling up the bolt length. Last battery installation, several wires didn't get put back on the battery bolts.
What can I do to make this less complicated?
I had considered making a short (3") battery cable, connect all the accessories to one of the lugs and connect the main wiring and other lug to the battery. This way all the accessories stay together. Would this work?

I bought some terminal blocks from JEGS. Basically brought a cable from each battery terminal (+/-) to the block and then jumped off the block.

Bought one of the Jegg's blocks, now to find a place to position it out of the way under the removable front rack.
There were instructions, so I'm assuming, run a red wire from the battery to a post on the Jegg's, and a black wire from the battery to the other post on the Jegg's??

That is a very insightful assumption - I think you are onto something there

Yup that's all there is to it. You can double up on either post. For the bigger wires I used the bigger post and for the smaller wires I used the smaller post from the JEGS terminal block.

Yea, I see the post size difference now.
So, the two posts are not connected?
So, I can get by with just one of these "Terminal Blocks"?

No they are most definitely connected. Under the plastic the terminals are all one piece. You need both!!!

Actually this specific terminal block is not connected. There is an optional bus bar that you can install that will connect the two terminal points, otherwise they are separate.

For the OP, you can use one for positive and one for negative, or install the bus bar and use it for positive only and ground your other wires separately.

I stand corrected, THEY ARE NOT MOST DEFINITELY CONNECTED. Lol!!!! Its been about three years since I installed them. Personally I wouldn't use just one. The Pos. and Neg. are to close for comfort. To easy for a slip and boom!!!!
