Default Good stuff!

It would be a good idea to locate that big solenoid anyways though, just in case something down the road draws too much and disables it.

You can poke it with a wire from the hot stud to the trip pole and energize it to get yourself out of a bind on the side of the road (voice of experience).

My own challenge now is to figure out which wire coming from the DRL does what and get that working right again.

There is an outfit in Edmonton called Smith Electric that carries the big 100 Amp solenoids (they are very hard to find). They got me one from somewhere in Calgary overnight that I have as a spare. They had a lot of very useful things for big trucks, like big alernators for the Detroits!

Happy Wandering.
