well.

i would of thought you would put a switch in before the terminal

for example say you want 1 terminal on there you would put the switch int he wire coming from the psu to the distribution box if you know what i mean, so flicking it on would allow power to flow to the distribution box....just hook the LED upto the switch so when the switch is on, the LED comes on but you might need a resistor.

but...buuuuuut......if you want more than 1 terminal....for example 5, and you had 5 switches..you would have to have all 5 switches on to be able to use terminal 5.

so putting the switches in series would be alright if you dont mind messing around switching them all on....i aint sure how to do it a differen't way, well i do know but i can't explain it in words...ill through together a pic in paint.

not the best of drawings but you get the idea, obviously you will have to put resistors on for the LEDs and possibley for the terminals but it doesn't really matter where you put them for the terminals just aslong as the power actually flows through them before it gets to the terminals.

Good luck steve. You should see a pic of the bottom of my box. Make sure you use my formula in that thread to determine the resistor needed or you'll cook it. Also, make sure the resistor is on the pos side of the LED (the longer off of the LED) Wiring switches in is going to be much more difficult so I decided to skip that, plus I wanted good power going to the charger etc.. so i didn't want power going through a little DC switch. My LED's are bling enough

Oh, and Chris I will do the writeup...lol
