The AutoFUSE saves you from having to pull and replace an ATC or ATO fuse every time you tow your vehicle. Fuse bypass activates automatically and charges the car's battery to prevent it from being dead when you reach your destination.
Some towed cars require that you pull a specific ATC or ATO fuse to keep the battery from being drained during towing. This fuse must then be reinserted when you want to drive your car. The TowDaddy AutoFUSE eliminates this procedure by automatically bypassing the fuse when your towed car is hooked up to your RV.
The AutoFUSE control module plugs into your fuse box in place of your ATC or ATO fuse, and it uses the pulled fuse to maintain circuit protection when your vehicle is not being towed. However, when the car is being flat towed, the AutoFUSE bypasses the fuse so that the system acts as though the fuse has been pulled.
If you tow on a regular basis, the AutoFUSE will eliminate the need to open your hood, pull a fuse, and then remember where you put the fuse to reinsert it when you are finished towing. And if you're driving cross-country and must regularly disconnect your towed car to drive around town, the AutoFUSE will save you the hassle of reinserting the fuse every time.
The AutoFUSE also maintains your battery's charge when your vehicle is being towed. This comes in handy for towing applications that use a powered supplemental braking system. AutoFUSE keeps the brake system from draining the towed car's battery.
The AutoFUSE installs inside your vehicle's engine compartment. It taps into the trailer connector at the front of your vehicle that plugs into your RV, and it is powered by the RV's electrical system when the towed vehicle is connected to the RV.
Mount the control module inside the engine compartment, on or near the fuse box. Splice the ground and lead wires into the ground and running light wires on the towed car's trailer connector. The module even has an LED indicator light to let you know that it's receiving power.
Next, pull the designated fuse and insert it into the fuse holder on the AutoFUSE. Then plug the AutoFUSE into the recently vacated fuse slot.
It's that simple. Now every time you hook up to your RV, turn your towed car's key to the "tow" position, and turn on your RV's tail lights, the AutoFUSE is triggered to bypass the fuse and to charge the towed vehicle's battery.

This product was very easy to instal, worked on the first try which surprised me since nothing ever works the first time for me. It does what it said it would do kill the Ing power when the RV headlights are turned on and it is plugged into the RV. Only on thing it said that if it was working the light would be green but the light is red.... 78457
