This is absolutely correct. Shoving a wire in with a blade fuse, you are sending 12V to that wire. Post dimmer switch is where I would go with RamTech's advice.

They also make blade fusees with a tab to put a wire with a spade connector on, instead of jamming it in with the fuse. That is some backyard mechanics that will bite you in the *ss sooner or later.
