Just run a toggle switch with an aux power to the selinoide relay that operates the lift it's easy just trace wires from the lift under the chassis

there is usually a signal wire from the ignition to the lift it actuates a solenoid in the lift to allow ity to run off it's main power leads you can find that and power it from a fused switch from what power you want to run the lift off.

hope this helps

I have a skoolie and I installed a lift. I've also worked on commercial buses with lifts. Some info you received is spot on. Three wires from the ignition, one is power to the key (ignition), two is power from the key after the key is turned on(ACC). The third is power to the starter solenoid after the key is turned further. Back to the 2nd wire (ACC) this wire runs everything including the lift. The branch of ACC that goes to the lift has 2 maybe 3 and maybe even 4 interlock relays. For the relays to allow the current through them, they each must complete a task (i.e. the brake is on or in neutral or the flashers are on, etc). Each and every relay can be bypassed by completing the needed circuit to the controls at or near the lift. Your first challenge is to decide if the controls need power to them to work or ground to them to work. Please remember if you take power from the large positive wire, it will probably have a large amperage circuit breaker or fuse(like 90 amps). The small wires to the controls you should protect by a small inline fuse (say 10 amps). Good luck.
