We have power

It seems trivial, but the below photo is the first time I’ve powered all 3 boards of the Rover 5 from the battery. Note 3 LEDs shining!

Re-doing power is definitely a job for some time in the future. For now I have a simple on off switch connected to the + input. Then the Arduino and two motor drivers hooked up in parallel off of the switch and the GND input.

I’m wondering if I need a fuse anywhere? I’m pretty sure the chassis motors have a fuse on their power leads but don’t know if I need one on the input from the battery right now.
