5. Locate and remove the large IGN fuse from the
underhood fuse block. This item from your manual should stop the auto lights.

We added a hot line from the MH to the toad. Now the MH powers everythinng and we don't disconnect anything. More importantly we don't worry! ed

I added the hot line to a trickle charger that was removed from a trailer with electric brakes and permanantly wired it to the Toad.
