Setup procedure for 2015 GMC Terrain

Couple of questions:
1. When stopping owners manual states to start vehicle and run for approximately 3 minutes. Do I have to reinstall the #32 fuse that was pulled for towing? I know not to drive vehicle without the fuse but starting and letting idle is it okay?

Thanks for any advise

I start mine most of the time with the fuse removed. Been about 18 months now and no issues.
Not even sure what that fuse does as I've driven it quite a bit before remembering to install.
I've installed a switch so that I just reach down by my knee to turn the fuse on and off.

Yes I was thinking about the switch. I may install one. Seems like $79 is a lot when I can just pop out the fuse? Fuse #32 is Descrete Logic Ignition Fuse. I have always towed a jeep and not use to having to start vehicle at stops? Jeep no speed or distance restrictions.

Perhaps your owners manual reads different than mine, but I don't start the toad at rest stops. My manual says to start it at fuel stops. Really ambiguous as that distance could vary greatly. I have a 150 gal fuel tank so fuel stop could be over 1,000 miles. Since we normally travel 200 - 300 miles then spend a few days, I just start it when we get where we're going, then use it for a few days.

That's what I think. Was going to run at end of travel day. Figure I would start car while unhooking and that would be the 3 minute run time.

Thanks

My GMC Acadia says to run the engine when I stop for fuel. That usually about every third day or travel! Somehow I don't think that really helps.

Gary,
There is no distance restriction just don't go over 65 mph. I will most likely do at end of travel day.
Thanks
