    I want to use 2 DC motors of 12V, 10A each + a DC diaphragm pump of 12V, 10A, 100psi.
    Battery used is 12V, 80AH (Car battery).
    Between battery and load, what are the control circuits required to safeguard my DC motors and pump?
    What are the possible odds? (overvoltage,overvoltage?)

    KMoffett, I thought of mentioning overcurrent and overvoltage in the question.
    But I was not sure whether overvoltage would happen or not since using battery, and I do not know any other kind of protection will be there (atleast, I cannot think of)

    Just provide each motor and the pump with its own suitably-rated fuse.
