I cooked my reserve lighting unit. I do not have a battery, so I hooked an auxiliary power unit, it cooked the reserve power unit. Why did this happen and I have read it is best to jump this unit. I am not sure how to exactly please help. And should I replace it? Please help
Thanks
Bobby

\They are available on Ebay cheap. Also research the work around, many just disable them.

The reserve lighting unit is likely to fail due age. You should bypass and not replace them. A replacement will fail soon always. Bypass is easy with three wires. Google it.
