Where in Arizona? Headed there in a couple of days.
We're in Apache Junction until Feb 1st.
So here's what happened. Until Joe (MSHappyCamper) learned and posted that there is a special fuse puller in the fuse box under the hood, I could not get that fuse out. Others tried. No luck. So I had put off doing the job. Never even saw the fuse puller, but trusted it was there since I bought the car new.
I was at Camping World in St. George, Utah and happened to see the Roadmaster Fusemaster in the tow bar aisle. Went to the service desk and told them about the fuse situation. A tech was standing there and he said I bet I can get it. Famous last words. Nope - not until he used the special puller under the hood.
So he says - do ya want us to do it. How much. I don't recall what he said but it was reasonable and the guy was all over it.
I asked him the same question and I believe he said...
Both there is a knock out but it's tight under there so I drilled a hole. I didn't question it. But guess what? The battery hasn't died once. And it looks OEM.
The only draw back is loosing the radio presets. No biggie.
