You'll need to remove the trunk under cover, seat, unhook the saddlebag actuator cables from the saddlebags, disconnect the electrical connections under the trunk as well as the speaker and antenna connections under the seat, remove the four bolts in the bottom of the trunk and lift it away. See below:

Are you eliminating the trunk or just removing for some work ? Just being nosey. . .

Actually I think my hazard fuse is blown because when pushing in the hazard light button no lights come on. so after seeing what I have to remove to get to hazard light fuse maybe I am going to pass and say the hell with this project. thanks for the info

If I am not mistaken, the fuse is in the fuse block under the side of the seat, only the relay is under the trunk. . .

You may not have to remove the truck completely to get to the relay. I think if you remove the under cover and the bolts that hold the truck down, you should be able to tip it back enough to get to the relays.

That's correct, I did this myself this winter. I removed the under cover, the four trunk bolts, then tipped the trunk up and shoved something in between it and the trunk frame. It gave me more than enough access to get to both the turn and hazard relays.

However, like the previous poster said, the fuse is located in the fuse box under the side cover, not under the trunk.

On that note. . . I do not have a owners manual or repair manual yet, does the Emergany Flashers have their own fuse or is it a shared fuse , and if so, shared with what ?

It uses the Accessory fuse, the 10 amp fuse, #10:
