If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, I think you will find this simple wiring diagram very useful.

I just got done replacing the 10si that I'd installed in my courier p/u several years ago, using the "looping #2 to battery connector" method. this time, however, I connected #2 so that it only sees voltage when the ignition is on. Seems to be working fine for now, & hopefully no more power drain after sitting a week or two. anyone else tried this, or am I in new territory? I also did it this way because it seems like leaving the #2 terminal constantly on might shorten the life of the regulator/diode bridge?
please pardon my horning in on the conversation, btw.
