Default Marker Light LED Strobe mods

We pull a bunch of high end cars and trailers from our Pinto Hatchback to my dump trailer. I added about 30 diodes to a new set of markers and was able to make stopping much safer. On the stop brake signal I added a motorcycle stop flasher module. I also hooked up emergence vehicle strobe flasher unit. I also hooked up the conventional flashers to the markers which requires a led modification. soon to have an as-built for the bus files to be passed forward and will post them here as well.


I think this vid has no sound other than annoying background. hard to see the bus outline as it was low light outside.

  1. Used new led marker sets that required shaving to make them fit and shine at right angles
  2. hooked low intensity wire to old marker +12
  3. ran stop and both turns up the cap and hooked to high intensity wire with diodes at each connection
  4. installed a flasher unit in cockpit found spare marked pair to rear cap used two to set up emergency flasher config
  5. installed a motorcycle brake light pre flash on the overhead stop light path to all high intensity markers
  6. installed front marker sets to mimic rear markers all but the blinkers.
