OBS CB Radio

Hey Guys,
Where did you hook up the cable to get power to the CB? Did you use the fuse box inside the cab or in the engine compartment. Please let me know what # the fuse is. Thank you


Tom

You could run a wire from the battery with a fuse in it, it's what I did. Used that for my fog lights in my f150 too, just different switches on split power

I used a fuse tap but in hindsight I would rather run the wires from battery to limit electrical noise.

I hooked up a 3 prong 12V power outlet in the truck and wired a fuse inline with the power cable. Its a 3 amp tube fuse. I think its 3 amp lol.
