Damn Canbus!

I am preparing for a long journey. Making the packing list and testing few things. Among them a small compressor from Touratech that I was planning to carry just in case. What do you think? You cannot put more than 2 bars in a tire because the canbus is disconnecting the power outlet due to high consumption I presume. Waisted money. I may install another power outlet connected directly to the battery through a fuse.

The easiest solution is to install the second power outlet. Problem solved.

'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That's what I did, and wired it directly to the battery with a fuse. It's handy, because I can use an air compressor without turning on the ignition and air up my tires in the garage.
