    How do you have it wired in? If it's hardwired going through a switch do you have the power wire going through the fusebox or straight to the battery. You can run it through both the switch and the fusebox... run it to the accessory fuse and that way when you shut your truck down it will go off also.

    Another thing... Try putting in a light next to your switch or the switch itself.

    Glad your getting a great responce to the light. Makes you feel good doesn't it? :D

    Truck has a pre wired switch in the overhead console for warning lights...Ill get used to turning it off after a few storms...
    Everyone around here has the rotators...rarely see LED light bars. Guys liked the light, but you could see them tryin to figure out how many drives it would take to pay it off..lol

    Must be nice.... I've had one ordered and paid for since Dec. 16. Did get my new SHO-ME Luminator (I think it is) and its pretty cool. Worked Saturday without one on my Bobcat and don't like that. Loaned all my strobe magnetic units to my guys.

    Where you at in Ohio... I've got an el' cheapo LED w/cigarette plug that you can borrow or you can try my little Whelen Cadet. Both Magnet mounts. The Cadet won't wash out in the light. LED is great for the dark or bad weather.

    Let me know if you'd need to borrow one!
