    I have the strobes n more w series led hideaways, there crazy bright and awesome, but why do I have such a problem with them doing an alternating pattern! I pick a pattern then skip one ahead and they alternate for a little bit then they'll eventually flash at the same time, then I go through it all again and get them to alternate, then I turn them off and turn them back on and there flashing at the same time again!!! I'm losin my patience!!

    Do I still have to hook the sync wire up even to get them to alternate? I emailed strobes n more and asked about the sync wire and they never said yes hook them up or no don't hook them up
     
  4. Yes hook it up for them to work

    I hooked the sync wire up last night and they alternate now! Woohoo! We'll see what happens when I turn them on today lol
     
  9. Turn them on and run them for 20 mins. Turn off for a few. Then back on and run them again. They should stay right now

    Yup I just checked them and there all good now! I was just confused and thought I didn't need to sync them since I wanted them to alternate, thanks for the info!

    Sal,

    Not to be too needy but any chance you could do a video at night and with the parking lights on?? I was curious what the output is when the parking lights are on, particularly for the front. I can't believe how bright those are. Nice looking rig you have there.
