So I've got a 2015 570 eps and after seeing all the problems with fuel pumps and EPS systems I thought I could use a few spare relays just in case! I'm looking for recommendations on where to purchase a few. I don't want cheap Chinese junk, so I will pay for the best available . Let me know what you guys think!

I always stock up on relays & fuses of all kinds anytime I’m at pull-part . Sure they are used but I’d rather have good quality oem used parts than some of the aftermarket garbage that’s sold .. They always cut me a deal if I buy more than 10.

Nope your not alone , it’s my favorite place. I always go open minded and get whatever cool stuff I find. So if I go looking for fuses but I walk by a Gm truck with a 4.8-6.0 or a 4l80e trans then I’m taking it with me lol.. but yeah relays are not specific to anything off or on road, you just gotta figure out which vehicles have the same relay. Of course it’s much easier to walk in parts store and buy though 🤣

I've never needed a relay on the trail but it would be easy enough to carry one I suppose.
It’s just old habit for me. Iv never had one go bad on the trail, but I have had headlight/fuel pump relay fail on motorcycle/vehicle on the road. So I always carry a little baggy with couple extra fuses one or two relay and spark plugs.

I always plan ahead. I stacked enough spare wood in my attic to build a new house incase it burns to the ground and only the chimney is standing.

We have one yard that you can go and pull parts. I call it “The Museum”. You pay $3 for admission and I always say “one ticket to the museum”. That laugh every time. I just pick and pull. Never check tool box, just ask “ what ya find today?”

I have some issues that will sometimes cause a fuse to pop or relay to go back. Goes into the shop next week. Anyway, I keep spares in a used prescription bottle. No dust, no moisture. I just buy them off of Amazon. Just search the type of relay it is and get some.
