Aux Switch 1 and 2 are 40 amps. How can I use those switches for lower amp lights, etc. Any special wiring changes?

Just use them like you would 2 ,3, 4. Treat them all the same. But sure, 1, 2 can handle 40.

@Rhinebeck101 is right 40 amp is what it can handle, not what it has to handle.

Anticipating your next question... 8-)

Yes, each Aux is fused.. is protected. 15 amp or 40 amp fuse depending on which Aux.

There is no reason why you cannot also have you own fuse in the mix. Say your accessory has a 10 amp inline fuse... Just leave the 10 amp fuse in the mix so your accessory is protected at 10 amp.
