Customer Reviews
Great power divider By
A very easy set up and quick tear down of all ham accessories that are connected to the Rigrunner in my shack. Handles my 40 amp loads no problem. Works great no flaws.

Awesome expansion facility for the H1 By
I was looking to expand the electronics in my '97 H1 to add some radios / electronics and didn't want to go through the existing fuse box.  The RIGrunner 8012 provided just what I needed and allowed the location to be centralized in the cab, coupled with enhanced ease of use and protection included in the device.
