Dunno - I'll check

With the green LED on and the bike turned off, do you still measure +12V at this circuit (#3)?????
Thanks for the advice on the PDM60. I have been thinking about a rewire to simplify my setup as you have described. I can clearly get rid of the relay tied to the Kristas. The Autoswitch can talk directly to the Krista module.

For the Stebel horn, I'm not so sure. I think I'll need to bundle the two 15-amp circuits together or have a new PDM custom programmed with two 10-amp circuits to tie together.

It is frustrating that I still have too many direct connections to the battery and this fantastic power distribution module just 6 inches away!!

Also - I don't use my airbag sensor anymore, so my circuit will be simpler.

The main problem is: everything is working fine now and I'm reluctant to screw with it. The extra relays work just fine and I can't use that space for anything else. I'm inclined to let the sleeping dog lie.

Now - if Rowe upgrades the PDM to my recommendations, I may reconsider:
1) keep the battery tender connector (it came, and went.....)
2) integrate Clearwater's single-LED voltage monitor concept

I'd pony up again for one of these.

Also - you know we need pics of your schematic and installation. So let's get on with it!!!!
