    Default Power for tow sockets?

    Anyone know an easy place to pick up the 12V feed for the 7 way relay and the split voltage relay for towing sockets? My old Vectra B had a nice big wire already in place in the boot.

    put in OEM towbar wiring and towbar module.. then its easy..

    but the large fuses in the back (or where theres room for them) is ready for 30 amp fuses.

    Problem is that this car has had a towbar on it at sometime but typically when it was taken off they simply cut the wiring and left it stuck up behind the bumper and I have no idea what the wiring is. Looks like it is terminated in the rear fuse box, one large grey wire and one large black one. I suppose I could pull it back into the boot and try to figure out the wiring with a meter but it's probably going to quicker/easier to simply scotch lock onto the rear light cluster. As I'm using a bypass relay I just need a 12V feed to the relay and the split charge relay for the fridge/battery.
