2000 Dynasty--making jacks work in ACC position of ignition switch

I have moved my Air Dump connections in the FRB so that the Air Dump will work in ACC position of switch. I would like to do the same thing with the hydraulic leveling controls. However, unlike the Air Dump, the "Levelers" fuse is ALREADY in the ACC line of fuses in the FRB. The LEVELING CONTROL PANEL (NOT the hydraulic motor or the solenoid valves) for the levelers is fed by the "Levelers" fuse in the FRB--remove the fuse and the leveler panel will not light, regardless of ignition key position. But even though the leveling control panel will light in ACC position of the ignition switch, the switches will not operate the jacks. You must turn the ignition switch to "ON" position. So, although the leveling control panel is operative, there must be a heavy contactor that is only operative when the ignition switch is in the "ON" position.

Has anyone ever changed their jacks so they will work in the ACC position. My 1993 Dynasty was wired that way, and it made sense to me. Having to have the ignition switch "ON" doesn't make sense.

Doesn't hurt a thing as you'll turn it off when the leveling is complete.

Now if you could tell me what to do so that I can have engine running when I run slides in out to keep batteries fully charged and not have such a large draw when I run slide in or out that would be appreciated.
