The V-correction is applied to the GHA of the planet, correcting for the minutes of the hour. It does not replace the SHA.
The d-value is the applied to the declination.
Both are applied as per the instructions from the almanac or from Bowditch. And by reading Bowditch you may get a better understanding of what you are doing.
