    87a is an option. Most relays don't have it

    30 and 85 can be switched around btw 86 is your supply pwr. 30 or 85 would be what you would use a switch to control the relay

    Ok. Then the parking lights would be 30 or 85. Me personally I would switch it. But I personally would switch it,,only b/c I hate using electricity when I don't need it. I.e. I switched my headlights/plowlights. Works great
