    Were is the best place to tap into for power to the lift/angle switches on a 2001 Silverado?
    I want it to cut the power when the key is off but there is no super obvious spot to tap into the power. Thanks in advance.

    I tapped into the hot lead for keyed acessory power in my truck, right there in the fusebox on the end of the dash. I can check it if you want the fuse number. I only needed low current 12v for my controller, I assume this is what you're looking for , right?

    Here's what I did for my Fisher installatin.

    Tapped a wire onto one end of the 10a fuse marked "cruise". Its a dead circuit unless the truck power is on. Put a small inline fuse on the power tap you use to protect your electrical system.
