Just fitted a towbar and have to wire in bypass relay.
Can the 12v be taken from a point in the fuse box or must this come direct from the battery?

I'm fitting one this evening. I was thinking for handiness just connecting to the 12V socket in the boot? Although this won't give a permanent live feed.

you can connect to the fuse box. ideally find a space where if you switch off the ignition the power is cut.

On mine, the previous owner had a tow bar installed, and the 12v suppply was feed via a fuse from the battery, across the engine brace, along the driver side sill trim into the boot area.

I ran power direct from the battery, with a fuse in the line.
All i didnt do was make a connection into the fog lamp feed. the fog lamp is in the bootlid, but im hoping it should be possible to get this from cabling in the side panels rather than having to go into boot lid
