Coming along

So got a bit done in the last couple of days! The rear cab distributor is in (for some reason I havent’ taken a photo of it yet.. will get one soon!), i have it connected to the power feed from the front, have an earth line from it to go to one of the rear seat mounting bolts, and also have pos and earth lines to run to the ute back. I also selastic’d up that annoying whistle in the roof, though got a surprise while doing it!

So I’ve partially found out what this ‘hella transflash’ thing is for.. It connects INLINE with my existing flasher relay, between the relay and my trailer socket.. Idea is twofold – 1) IT drives the trailer/caravan indicators, so it doesn’t change flash rate, and a short doesn’t take out the main indicators on the ute.. 2) If a globe blows on the trailer/caravan (I haven’t confirmed this by testing yet mind you), that little red light is supposed to light up.. How that works, I dont’ know 🙂 When I test it and find out, I’ll post back!
