    I would like to mount a light on top of my 252B. My warning light pulls 9 amps. Will the wire and plug to the auxiliary light on the top corner of the cab handle this amp draw?

    Pull the fuse for it and see. I have one for the top of my 268 and it works fine for one of those cheapo rotating beacons.

    It's got a 10 amp fuse on the panel. So I guess it should pop the fuse before melting wires? Want to run a code 3 420 rotating mini bar. Thanks.

    Don't believe there is. The fuse panel diagram show just aux. beacon light.
