The battery switch is powered by fuse 61, the stud labeled battery in the dash is powered by fuse 11. The keyed power switch is powered by fuse 30, the stud labeled ignition in the dash is powered by fuse 27.

I'm trying to remember on mine I now I wired the under dash lights on the one with the battery. I kinda think my son did the wirering and there was a post in the fuse and breaker panel that turned of and on with the switch. On another post you had mentioned doing an upgrade on your ecm to give you more power at higher elivations just wondering if you've tryed it yet as mine runs terrible when I get into Colorado and Alberta to.

i was going to use one for my rear axle dump valve on the trailer.
the other for all my oversized load becons, all LED less than 10 amp for all.
so i can just hook to the switches, and im good to go????????????
Your installed switch and fuse ratings will tell you this information. However, you cannot go wrong with incorporating a contactor, (relay) in series with your induced loads to take the sudden inrush of current in any electrical system. 10 amperes is not a lot of load but over time the contacts of the switch will oxidize and break down. This would not happen with a contactor coil and larger contacts absorbing this load.
Going through life knowing considerably more about nothing than the next person.
