825; power lift with key off?

I want to wire my dump bed lift so it'll work without turning on the ignition key. has anyone decoded the wiring to be able to do this?

JD wiring is unswitched (red, always powered) and switched (yellow, ignition in run). The toggle switch is low power which triggers unswitched relays for up/down. So you just need to get to the yellow switched power wire at the toggle switch and replace it with an unswitched power side wire. Since everything JD makes is harness/connector, you're likely looking at cutting, capping, and splicing in. The good news is you only have to deal with the toggle switch side. You can get a tech manual on eBay for $50 or so which will help you out on this or anything else. The attached picture shows what's going on.
