Here is the mod I made under my pace edwards tonneau. Makes looking for stuff at night a breeze
Thanks for explaining this!I used the following parts:
2 - SE-WFLS-x60 series 60 High Power LED Waterproof Flexible Light Strip ( from superbright leds)
2 - SE-WFLS series Power Connectors
1 - 12V Accessory plug
1 - handy box
1 - blank cover
1 - 14ga sealed fuse holder
1 - 20a fuse
14ga wire and some 18ga wire and some other asst connectors which were all soldered in
an a few feet of 3/8 plastic loom and a bunch of tie wraps.
I ran the 14ga wire in the loom that came with the electric tailgate lock and that wire was attached to the main (+) terminal via fuse holder on the TIPM.
I split the wire out of the loom under the truck and put it in another loom heading up the stake pocket. I taped the loom to the rest of the loom under there .. looks like a factory install.
I punched one end hole out of the handy box for the 12V plug and drilled a 1/2in hole in the cover for the switch. I wired the 14ga wire direct to the 12v plug and slpit that off with an 18ga wire to the switch for the lights.
My next step now is to get another handy box and cover ready to take to LineX to get sprayed next time I'm in the St Louis area - then the switch box will blend in better.
