Acessory Outlets and amps XC
On my new Tour the owners manual says:
Radio - 25 amp fuse
Accessory (under right side cover) 20 amp
12 - Volt Storage Compartment Outlet (under electrical cover above battery) 10 amp
The bike has 3 outlets. OK, just guessing here, but I'll bet they are saying the storage compartment above battery is the lower fairing on left where ipod connector is. - 10amp - makes sense for small items, ipod, phones....
...under right side storage compartment... I'll guess actually feeds the Tour pack ( wouldn't that be left? Is it facing bike's headlight or as you sit on it?)
... so, and follow me here please, is the Outlet in the fairing coming off the 25 amp... or do you think it is wired with the 10 amp in the lower?
Reason I ask is I use a heated vest for winter, use to wire straight in to battery, but that was when the battery was under the seat. I can plug it into the accessory outlet, and want to be sure not to overload the outlet.
Anyone know the schematics on this and is it safe to use the fairing outlet, even with all the electronics, radio, and possible GPS?
Would it be better to tap into the accessory side cover and would that affect warranty?
