Hello,

Need your expertise for my 2016 Outback 3.6R add-a-circuit in my interior fuse box.

I'm not sure if the add-a-circuit after it is plugged back in should be facing up or down?

I have it facing down right now (see picture link below).

Thanks for your help.

Don't think it matters. What ever is most convenient for access to the fuses near it, and for your wiring needs. It's electricity, not water. It won't spill.

I went through this when installing a Dashcam. I figured it out by staring at it for a minute and seeing how the circuits flow. The add-a-circuit will work in both orientations, but only one is correct.

Here's some useful info:

I thought the OP meant just weather it was pointed up or down. That shouldn't matter, but yes the flow of electricity has to be flowing thru the original fuse then to the piggy back. Otherwise you could draw more current than the original circuit is capable of handling.
