Default Re: installed some auxiliary lights

Some advice and points on all of this.

- Good move on using a relay for those aux reverse lights. People who drive the aux lights directly are asking for problems.

- Expect to lose them once in a while. They're rather high profile lights so anything big the tires kick up will decapitate those lights real easy. I used to put a new one on my old truck at least once a year.

- Waterproof the shit out those LED's. Remember, that wiring is literally being blasted by 60mph jets of water, dirt, and salt. I'm not sure those will last very long, we'll see.

I went to school to be an industrial electrician (and now I'm driving a fork truck, school payed off ) .those lights can pull a lot of power, so hooking them up on another circuit is iffy to me. I'll keep your suggestions in mind thank you.

Usually people who do that find that the reverse switch in their transmission that turns the lights on mysterious stops working a few months later.
