    i am trying to outfit my 10 wheeler for plowing an interstate

    i had a star strobe hideaway power box on the shelf but it only has a 2 light hookup

    do i simply need to buy a few bulbs and cable set for it to work?...has anyone made their own? (i need to run about 40 feet up to the top of the dump box)

    also, can i T each connection to put 2 bulbs on one output? or will the power supply not be enough to make them flash it says 6 amps on the box

    thanks for any help or ideas

    will run only two heads i presume...unless its a four outlet..

    i roll cut all my wires...and pin them myself...very easy and cheap.....and i have extra tough wires for trucks like yours....i would use a 14g at least for that...

    no, you can not T a strobe wire...

    also...wire must be shielded....or RF interference is crazy..

    Yes...you can use any kind of strobe light head...oval, body mount...whatever...

    i dont get on here as often as i would like....please feel free to email me if you have any other questions. the link is in my signature.
