Not sure if anyone has done this. I did a bit of forum searching to see, but came up empty handed so far.

I'd like the option of running the Sound 5 system from the house battery. If this was an older muscle car design, it'd be a breeze. Find one wire to one fuse and put in an A/B switch that decided if that wire was connected to the vehicle battery or the house battery.

This doesn't look so easy with the NCV3. From looking at this thread (http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27249&referrerid=29325) it looks like there are multiple fuses and that the CANbus may be somehow involved.

Has anyone tried what I'm trying to do? If so, can you point me to your solution or miserable failure?

Thanks,
