2013 CRV fuse question

I'm getting ready to add a cutoff switch to the accessory fuse circuit. When you pull the fuse for several hours, do you lose any programming such as clock time, bluetooth programming, radio presets, etc. ? Thanks!

I had the same question before we did my 2014 CRV. - If you pull the fuse which the owners manual suggests, the only thing that is lost is the two 12 volt cigar lighter outlets ( dangit ) .

Look on Blue Ox web site. Find your base plate. Then look at base plate options. They have a fuse switch kit. I ordered a base plate yesterday for our new car and wiring kit plus the fuse switch kit. Maybe $50 don't remember. Might build your own for lots less ?

OK, one more question. I am looking at the owner's manual to see which fuse I need to pull.

In the interior fuse box, it says fuse #19 is "ACC", and fuse #25 is "Audio". I thought just one fuse controlled everything that could pull the battery down!

UPDATE: I just found in the manual where it says to remove fuse #19! I guess the #25 fuse doesn't matter huh?

Thanks again for your help!

I found an adapter at NAPA that will work. After I'm through I'll post some pics and info the the installation!

Here's what I did: buy one of these NAPA AUTO PARTSone of these NAPA AUTO PARTSand one of these Amazon.com: GTC CT6100 Fuse Socket Connector Kit: Automotive. The NAPA rocker switch fits perfectly in one of the blanks just below the Econo switch.

Bob, the first NAPA link you give is down. I searched and found your original post giving the number of the switch. I bought it and the front plate size is perfect, but it won't snap into the hole. The mounting is completely different! What did you do to make it fit the accessory switch hole in the Honda CRV?

Joe, forget pulling the fuse. Spend your money on a larger battery. Since replacing my battery, I have towed for two Long Days without unhooking. Run the car in the AM for a few minutes before take off to lube the transmission and battery was not even close to dead. Up until now, this has been a total pain but the new battery IS the answer.

Dennis, after today I'm beginning to think you're right! I have spent most of the day trying to find a switch that will snap into the dash opening, and that switch #19 is a real booger to get to!

What does a new hold-down bracket and battery cost?

The battery box is in two parts, see P/N in the photo. These parts are for a Honda Odessy. The battery is a group 51 which you can get all the way to 900+ CCA. The change is very simple, total bolt in. I wish I had know all this earlier, could have saved a bundle just on Asprin alone.

Wrong photo, for some reason it will only take one photo at a time. My apologies for the upside down pics. Apple has their own logic of up and down.

Joe, it does fit. If I remember correctly, I think I also though it wouldn't fit at first, but a good solid push and it snapped right in.
