Hi - I have a couple questions that would be answered with a wiring diagram, so if anyone has any links or can provide me with a wiring diagram, that would be great. In place of that, the questions I'm trying to figure out are:

1) Where are the accessory plug(s) on a 2012 TZ1 LXR non-Turbo? I want to connect a heated shield (preferably to a fused, ignition switched SAE plug.)

2) I also want to hook up a battery tender.... Shouldn't that need a non-switched accessory plug? I guess I could add an SAE plug directly hooked to the battery, but if there's already one available, it would be nice to know where to find it.

Thanks!

Don't have your answer, but what I did was wire a direct run to the battery, installed an inline fuse, and put a 2 prong trailer plug on the end that was compatible with my battery tender, I then made a short 6" adapter that changed that connection from the 2 prong to a connector that is compatible with my heated shield. So, I can use the same connection for the heated shield and charging the battery. I have found that there several advantages to having power to the heated shield even when the sled is not running, and I believe the shield works better with DC voltage rather than AC
