There is actually a method to their madness. The IOD fuse powers the items that can drain the battery when the ignition is off (Ignition off draw). The fuse holder is made so that you can pull the fuse out far enough to disconnect it without actually removing it. New vehicles are shipped to the dealer with it pulled out to save on battery discharge. The dealer is supposed to push it back in when the vehicle is prepped for delivery or test driven. If you ever need to store your vehicle for a prolonged period (Dodge says 20 days), you can pull the fuse out so your battery wont drain as much as it would with the fuse engaged.
