Anyone recognize this 5 amp fuse hanging off the battery?

    I have a ‘23 SR5 Crew Max 6’ bed. I added a Snugtop Sportsman as the only aftermarket item with any power associated (so far).

    I’m researching the placement of a True dual battery isolator and found this little addition to the battery curious.

    That's not factory. Did you buy the truck new?

    Probably a dealer installed GPS tracker. My dealer had them, I told them to leave it off mine. They tried like hell to sell me a gps tracking plan. I told them to leave it off or I would remove it and leave it on the parking lot.

    Did you have someone install your snugtop? Is there a light inside? Could it be they wired the light to the battery????? That's definitely not "stocck" with that blue crimp connector

    Thanks for all the replies. I bought this truck new, cash, so no dealer GPS tracker should present. I think I'll pull the fuse and check the USB port in the SnugTop. My guess is that they pulled power from the battery for the USB port since it's not dependant on the truck running for the power to be active.

    Would 100% agree this is for the canopy.
