  18. Dress 4 wires through top of relay box with all the other wires. Route away from heat and mount switch. Replace relay. The two positions are NORMAL OPERATION or PURGE ONLY. Vehicle Ignition switch has to be on.
This will be a step by step description from running to cool down. Having arrived from your ride the pressure may be high enough for the burner to be OFF (approximatly 250 psi).
    A. Shut vehicle ignition off
    B. Move new switch to the bypass position
    C. Turn on ignition switch
    D. Bleed off steam until purge fan comes on (approximatly 175 psi)
    E. Allow fan to run for about 5-10 minutes or until the pressure is below 100 psi.
    F. At this point all will be cool enough to be worry free
    G. Turn ignition off and move switch to normal position.
  20. During normal operation the following measurements were taken at the batteries.
    All on with burner firing..........................................20 amps
    Purge fan only......................................................13 amps
    If installed Small fire eye fan...................................0.3 amps
  Based on using 2 Optima SC34DM batteries in parallel capable of
110 amp hr rating it is estimated that on a full charge the vehicle should be able to run 8 hours non stop.
