    First ?

    Hello

    Without seeing your truck I must ask where is the strobe pack mounted? Than we will go from there.

    Well if there is no wet carpet,the ground is conected to a solid clean base and the power supply is mounted securly. I would check and make sure the pos 12 volt is proforming correctly. Unless all 6 strobe cables and conector are compromised I would stick with problems between power pak and 12 volt supply. Was this a new system when you bought it?

    Ok your getting water in your connections, the power supply is going into "saftey mode" so it dosent ruin any thing, I just got apex weather connectors installed, they run about 65$ includig labor, you can do it yourself but the crimpper to do it cost about 80$, if you want to do it cheap, just put alot of electrical tape on it.

    I say bad wire/connection with the positive or ground wire... What size wire are you using for both and how do you have it wired up?

    ^ it's a wet connection, instead of shorting out, it goes into saftey mode, then once the connections are dry it'll work again. He just needs to tape his connections better or get weather apex conectors
