    I am in the process of making my 2009 Prius into standby back-up power supply.
    I have a extensive electronic and electrical background so I am fully aware of the caveats.
    I am hoping someone can help. I am not able to figure out how to get to the HV relay, I have searched the Internet hi and low! Which panel do I take of first and how?
