    I don't have a fucking clue about wiring.

    Only wiring I do is what I need to do for work and I'm not having to actually think about it.

    @Iggy. is a wiring wizard, but not sure he's around much at the moment. Just had a baby a few weeks back, but hopefully he'll chime in when he can.

    Too poor to list anything interesting.
    OP has a pic of 10g wire, yet the add-a-circuit will only be 16g.

    Jesus. I don't think the door locks draw 20 amps.

    I don't want to give you bad electrical advice, as I pull off a separate block. So I couldn't tell you for sure.

    Even following a chart like this

    [​IMG]

    That charger only puts out 3.1A. That's not a terribly high draw.

    That all looks Japanese to me brother. I hope someone chimes in to say whether having those 2 10amp fuses in the door fuse section is okay

    The chart says your cable run should be more than enough for the ~3A

    Yeah. If the actuators are less than 10A you should be golden.

    Hopefully it works out for you and no :bananadead:

    Hey Mr. electrical man @Up2NoGood any thoughts on my set up? When I installed the mirror kit from you we used the AC 7.5 fuse slot. So I just installed a dual USB in my truck in the rear of the console as in this thread. And used the door lock fuse which was a 20amp yellow fuse. I used a blade fuse holder and put 2 10amp fuses in it, Should I be good to go or will I need higher fuses???

    Are you guys wondering if tapping into the fuse panel is cool for an outlet?

    If so, I wouldn't do it. Usually people want the extra cig outlet for charging things (the two USB charger included) but if you want to power something else I would advise against it. My biggest thing is running too much power from the fuse panel. There's no sense in potentially frying that thing for $30 in parts.

    Here's what I would do, I would use the fuse tap to get power from the ignition so there's only power while the truck is running or the key is switched. Then I would run a "hot" wire from the battery to a relay. The relay would supply power to the cig outlet and the fuse tap would trigger it on or off.

    I know that may not make sense to some, but I could possibly wire something like this up for someone if they would like.

    I know nothing about wiring, and everything you said makes no sense to Ricky sorry.

    I can build you something? Just give me word and all you have to do is plug into the fuse and run a wire to the battery.

    His stuff is legit.

    Check his previous threads.



    @Unchained 5150 and @b.prall I can personally vouch for his work and his work ethic, he's local to me and worked on my truck and many others.
