    I have a whelen edge on my truck with 4 corner strobes. I noticed while I was out of the truck during the storm that one corner is flashing differently than the other 3. They used to all triple flash, but this one front corner is single and sometime barely double flashing. The rear corner on the same side fires correctly however.

    The strobe in question is failing. Replace the tube and you'll be all set.

    Bging, replace the bar. Upgrade to todays technology...LED's. And based on your signature.....replace the truck that its on while your at it....just my $.02

    I had the same problem with one of the strobes on my Whelen mini edge. All would double flash but one would sometimes only single flash. Mine is an older model.

    Sounds like an ignorant response to me.I think I'll just spend the $15 on the new tube.
