    just curious how you guys wire your market lights onto your sanders for the winter time do you splice them into the marker lights them selves or do you wire it to a different switch? i'm currently wiring an led flasher on the back of the sander to a cigarette lighter thumb switch and was wondering if i should just wire that market light into that as well? any suggestions and or recommendations for an easy to install marker light setup.

    Can I ask why you have marker lights on your salter? Are they required?

    what kinda truck is this on? what kinda salter?
    usually when i wire up aux lights in the back, i run a switch the wire to the back, connector then the light. as far as your setup,,,i would tap into the parking light circuit somewhere outta the way,,run pwr and gnd to a connector..then up to the plate light.

    wire them into a trailer plug. than if u put rubber on the back of your truck like we do you can have all your working lights. as far as back up/ spreader lights wire those into the clutch for the conveyer and spinner than if u need them just flip that switch and bam lights even with the sander off
