2005 UPFITTER switches, idle mod on #1 what to do with the others?

Since i have been doing some work on my truck this week i went ahead and did the idle mod on upfitter switch #1. What do you guys and gals have hooked up to your upfitter switches? Thanks.

I have already used the #4 switch for the high idle mod....I guess I'd use the remaining for a Switch to shift the steering wheel horn control switch from stock to air horn relay (incidentally has anyone already done this and if so, could you share how you did it, preferably with pics), Another switch could be used to turn on/off aux reverse lights for tow hookup at night, another switch could be used to control and externally mounted air compressor used to inflate tires, air shocks, etc..

I'd use either the #3 or #4 switch for the high idle mod, since they are both protected with 10amp fuses as opposed to #1 and #2 switches that are 30amp fused. 30amp would be overkill for the high idle mod.

For the train horns i think you would need a 3 pos. switch
on
off
on

Top on would be factory horn
off would be blank
bottom on would be train horn

I dont think that you could do that with the upfitter switches unless you rewire it and im not sure if it would work then

Run a switch for your heated mirrors if you wanted. Most years the mirrors are on when ever the key is on.

Thats the way I have my train horn setup. I dont think you can use the upfitter because the upfitter switches are just a on/off switch.
