Yep, agree with Tommo. The bad connection will cause the heat so your fault was at that specific terminal.
It doesn't matter how big the load is, it will be the weakest point that will heat up, be that undersized conductor or high resistance joint/connection etc.
Relays are a great (and cheap) way of improving the output of the lights but they absolutely must still have a fuse, especially seeing as most of the load will probably not be going through the std fuse box anymore depending on how you wire them..
