    Can anyone here? I have an 14-15 year old dual dashmaster (Actually Gall's version but everything on the inside says Whelen) Recently only one strobe fire consistently. I swapped the strobes, switching where they were plugged in and both strobes fire fine when hooked to the good side. The other side will fire seldomly. I know this are older and can be had on ebay for $75 but I hate to throw things out if it is something that could be fixed.

    Anyone tell me what to test, replace or want to look at it yourself?

    Do you mean Cheshire, Whelen's HQ?

    45 minutes. Do they do service there? Figured it would cost as much as a new one.

    Gold, it has Blue lenses in it.
