    Ok i just installed 2 Vertex hideaways in my reverse lights, and also put 2 Whelen Tir3 in the grill. I have run all the wires in my cab, and synced the lights with a power converter. I have to put power to these lights. The Tir3 say that i have to run a 3 amp fuse on each light, and i am figuring the same for the vertex hideaways. I would like to have these 4 lights turn on with one switch, is that possible, and do i need to run a seperate fuse for each light? If i purchase a switch panel, would i be able to hook up the hideaways on a switch, and the Tir3 on there own switch? Any help would be great.

    just fuse each one seperately and then put them to the switch
    you can do all those on 1 switch no problem as leds are low current draw.
    or if your really concernced you can get a higher amp rated rocker switch from whelen or another manufacutrer
