Well this project has been going on for a couple of weeks now. I want my RV to be seen. It just blows my mind that all the manufactures use the same light, tail & turn, and clearance on all RV’s. When I have to get on the brakes I want the guy/gal behind me to know I’m on the binders, so.
I added red LED’s to the existing rear lights for stop and turn. I also put a nice polished piece of stainless behind the bulbs. In addition I also added two round four inch LED’s to each side below the bumper. So now I have three stop, turn, and tail on each side. Then the wheels really started to turn.
I ciphered out how and tested it and it does work, when the running lights are on, and the left or right turn signal is on, the lower clearance lights on that side will flash opposite of the turn signal. Now if the brake lights are on, brakes applied, the clearance lights will not flash until the brakes are released.
On my 831RKBSS it was easy to find all the connections inside for the lower clearance lights. I’m running a fused hot wire to each of the six lights. The wires will run under the floor between the bottom cover and the relays and fuses will be located under the lower drawer in the kitchen. This will make access easy with the slide in or out.
So if you see some guy flashing, it is me, er, ah us. And Lu, when she found out I had over $250 in this little adventure; I just received another “Oh Brother”.
