Power Source 2015 GMC Terrain

We're setting up our 2015 Terrain as a toad and I'm wondering when I pull or bypass the required fuse will I still have power to the aux 12v power supply in the center console? If not then I'll have to plan on installing a separate feed.
Thanks
DR

I would try it and see. I bet it is to disable the electric power steering assist, but thats not certain.

Take a look on this forum for the thread for Colorado/Canyon towing, its a good read at 19 pages.
Bottom line GM wants you to disconnect the negative cable to prevent damage to the electric power steering - as such you will have no power in the vehicle when towing.

You will either have to provide a separate power feed (I assume to your aux brake system) or have a portable battery pack to provide the power.

Just researching this for my 2016 Colorado.

P.S. There is no option of pulling fuse, the battery must be disconnected.

You would be much better off running a 12 volt circuit from your coach even if you do have power. I have seen a number of toads come into campgrounds with dead battery's because the braking system wore the battery down.
