Forgive me. I threw a voltmeter (+) on #7 in F150/4 and (-) on the seat base bolt and there is nothing when the van is running and after running for about 30 minutes. I see #7 in your picture with your added connections and have circled it below for reference. Am I oversimplifying this?

Interesting...does your f150:1 diagram match mine? I found the slot 6 on my buss bar matched your description for slot 7.

#7 isnt hot when off or on. From what I can tell, the F150/4 is the same. I'll do some more testing tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

Im Sorry...it is slot 6 not 7. 7 was not hot on mine. I got under the seat and confirmed.

I spent the last few days trying to sort this out. I ended up just tying directly to the + terminal on the battery. Works great. Thanks for your help!

This thread has been incredibly helpful.

I plan on running a 4 gauge wire from under the seat to the rear of my van to connect a DC/DC charger. Would I need to run a ground wire in parallel or would I be able to just connect to the ground input to the chassis in the rear and avoid the cost and hassle of running two 4 gauge wires?

That Im not sure about....I ran everything to the factory grounding location under the seat. I did notice a ground location in the back driver side upper corner.
