Why not switch the Volvo relay thermo switch inputs with the auxiliary relay(s) instead of the B+ input? Then your Volvo relay is doing the heavy current switching and load-carrying, not your aux relay. Your aux relay will never burn up again.
This is a distinct possibility. For now I'm going to go with the 80A relay to shut the entire system upon key off.
I agree that your proposed solution will work. But the easiest solution in my already-built rig is to upgrade the BATT cut relay. $9. Done.
