SCT newb - loading tunes

Any tricks to loading a tune file from an SCT 3015?

This is in the manual:

I know you're supposed to pull the FICM relay when doing a FICM tune, is there anything similar when doing the ECM? Will the GP draw during all the key cycles mess up anything?

I'm on the road and would really like to not brick the ECM

If it's your first time get home and then try the tuning. I haven't pulled any relays or fuses when tuning the PCM. Just follow the SCT promps, adjust the tire size to correct the speedo (if needed), and do not make any other changes. Just load the tuning and fire it up.
