    I'm sorry for the delay, I was on the road most of the day.

    First off Firefighter, is this bar single sided, like from an ambulance?

    As far as I knew, the Plus series were all one sided bars. The standard AdvantEdge bars were like a normal Edge light bar, but had rounded domes.

    Historically, all wires with a black tracer, on high current bars, have been ground wires.

    It also appears that the four strobe heads in that bar may be remote heads, which is why there are four strobe cables.
