Back up fuse

What is the "back up" fuse for on my '07 fjr? It has full time power but can't figure out what it powers. I am still chasing a power draw and I am wondering if it could be the culprit.

Dang!! Must be the cold in the North that keeps your batteries!

Down here in Texas... we can kill batteries faster than you can say, Hee Hah!

If I think Orion is gonna be more than a week, before I ride again, on the tender it goes!

Check the ground spiders under the tank on the left side. Suspiciously, all of those are really closely co-located... Wonder if a ground spider is failing under there?

You got this! It is low voltage!! I do not believe you will need a dealer to fix that issue.

You will derive much more satisfaction, after you find the fault and fix it yourself!!
Not necessarily. A lot of these circuits are dependent circuits. Meaning if a circuit higher upstream is failing, like because it its ground failure, the other circuits may not energize.
There are at least 3 or 4 ground spiders with black caps in that area. I don't know if you have this diagram, but it has helped me, Tremendously!!

And to give you an idea on how much I have been fighting the spider bites, here is a pic of me in mid diag/testing! LOL
