Postby jdeere86 » Thu Apr 21, 2022 6:24 pm

got the 12v conversion complete as mentioned in an earlier post -- anyways the alternator has power going to it with the switch off -- wondering if that is going to drain my battery ...for the time being i am just disconnecting battery after use -- below is my wiring -- any tips or advice?

sorry i feel like i have been abusing this board lately with too many questions

That is normal. It will not drain the battery

Should be about .005 amp draw. Yup. Won't drain the battery.
