  • Can you Change the Strobe Pattern on the Round LED Strobe Light # 337SL40AR?
  • The Round LED Strobe Light # 337SL40AR is a great option to add a high-visibility strobe light for your vehicle or trailer. The strobe light has a 6-flash strobe pattern that cannot be changed to other patterns, but you can use the included black wire to connect to another strobe light to sync their flash pattern together. Check out the video linked below for more details.

  • Does The Buyers Products Incandescent Strobe Light # 337SL500A Have 2 Flash Patterns
  • I spoke with the manufacturer, Buyers Products, and didn't get a straight answer on how the Buyers Products Incandescent Strobe Light # 337SL500A has two flash patterns so I went out to the warehouse to verify it for myself. After looking at this light I was unable to find any sort of switch or button to press to switch strobe patterns. Since it clearly only has one strobe pattern I've had this changed to 1 pattern and the video you referenced will be updated. If you look this product up...

  • Will Custer Battery Powered Magnetic Amber Warning Light Work in 50 Below Weather in Alaska
  • As you probably know the colder the temperature the harder it is for electrical items to work. The Custer warning light # HF20RL uses LED lights which require less power to operate than regular bulbs so the cold should affect them less. However, given the extreme cold you experience in Alaska it is hard to say how well it, or anything similar, would work. A 50 mile per hour straight line wind could probably move the light. Add snow and ice and it becomes less likely it will be able to...

  • Troubleshooting One Time Tow Without Trailer Wiring
  • There is not a way to run full trailer lights without tapping into your vehicle wiring. For a one time tow for about an hour on the highway as you stated, the simple solution is to use a couple of warning lights like the Blazer Amber Warning Beacon - LED - Battery Powered - Magnetic Mount - 4 Flash Patterns # C43A. This will warn people that your trailer lights are not working and allow you to tow your trailer to the destination. I recommend using one on each rear corner of your trailer,...

  • Magnetic Battery Powered Lights to Be Mounted on a Trailer
  • We do have some magnetic lights that operate on batteries. They're technically emergency lights but they have a constant shine setting. Of course they will not operate as brake or turn signals which I cannot recommend you tow your trailer without. A few examples: # HF18R-HD # HF18R-MB # HF18A-MB You might want to have your truck checked by a mechanic, if you haven't already. I know it will cost more money but if you're paying a shop to perform the repair it should solve the...

  • Can Custer Strobe Lights STRL4A be Powered By Running Light Circuit
  • On the Custer 4-LED Strobe Light or Running Light # STRL4A the black wire powers the steady-on running light and if power is applied to the red wire the strobe effect is activated. The white wire is the ground. If you ran the running light circuit of your truck's bed to this light you could have them activate as a solid running light or a strobe depending on which circuit you tapped into. A signal on the red wire will override the steady-on running light signal on the black wire...

  • How to Attach Magnetic Emergency Light to Aluminum Body Truck
  • I have a perfect solution for you! In order to attach the magnetic Blazer Amber Warning Light Bar # C4850AW to your aluminum body Ford F-250 I recommend using the Buyers Products Magnetic Mounting Plates # 3378895404. These self adhesive magnetic mount pads are specifically designed for applications like yours. They will stick to the aluminum cab using strong 3M tape and provide you with a magnetic surface to which you can mount any magnetic light. We do not have any suction cup...

  • Will Self-Adhesive Magnetic Warning Light Bars Adhere to Aluminum or Fiberglass?
  • I have a great alternative to the Blazer Amber Warning Light Bar # C4850AW. After some research, I confirmed that the Blazer Amber Warning Light Bar will not attract to aluminum or fiberglass. However, I recommend purchasing the Peterson Amber Revolving Halogen Warning Light Bar # 761A. Instead of mounting with a magnet, the Peterson permanently mounts on the installation surface and plugs into your vehicles auxiliary outlet. If you are looking for a no-drill solution with a bit of a...

  • Can Blazer Mini Amber Warning Light Bar # C4855AW be Hardwired and Permanently Mounted
  • If you cut off the cigarette lighter portion of the Blazer Mini Amber Warning Light Bar # C4855AW you'd have two wires that you could then hardwire if you wanted to. Also if you wanted to come up with a way to permanently mount the light as well that's also possible although we don't have a recommended way of doing that.

  • Does Buyers Products 6-LED Thin Strobe Light Need Own Power Source
  • The Buyers Products 6-LED Thin Strobe Light # 3378891902 does not need its own power source; it can be connected anywhere that will give it 12 volts, which is what you should be getting on your 4-way flashers. It will stay on the last flash setting that you give it, as per the cut out of the instructions I added for you. Momentarily adding power to the yellow wire will change to the next setting but you can go back to the first setting at any time by quickly applying power to the yellow...

  • Recommendation for Magnetic Tow Lights That Can Be Used as Back-up Should Trailer Lights Fail
  • It sounds to me like you are looking for a spare set of lighting that would allow you to move your trailer even if the trailer's lighting had failed. If this is the case, if your tow vehicle is equipped with a 4 way, I would recommend going with the Roadmaster Standard Magnetic Tow Lights, # RM-2120. These magnetic lights ensure that you have emergency flashers and the signal lights required for towing without having to tap into existing wiring. Just plug the lights in and you are ready...

  • Are Buyers Products Magnetic Mounting Plates Easy To Remove and Do They Damage Paint on Vehicle
  • Since your truck body is aluminum in order to install the Magnetic Blazer Amber lights part # C4850AW you need the Buyers Products magnetic mounting plates part # 3378895404. The steel plates part # 3378895404 are backed with 3M tape which from my research does not affect your paint if you use Goo Gone or 3M General Purpose Adhesive remover to dissolve the sticky residue before trying to remove it. They are one time application so once you have removed them you need more double sided...

  • Recommendation for Flashing Amber Lights to Install on Tractor Wheel Wells
  • We do have standard pedestal mount amber lights available, such as the Optronics # ST52AA, but if you are connecting the lights directly to your tractor's battery, they will not blink like hazard lights. They will simply provide a constant light as long as they are connected to a power source. For flashing amber lights that might work well for your application, I recommend taking a look at the Alpena Twin Strobz Amber LED Flashers # ALP77234. The amber lights can be wired to your battery...

  • Can Additional Lights be Added to Alpena Strobe Lights # ALP77234
  • Alpena does have a 4-light strobe system, # ALP78304. But as far as doubling the lights on # ALP77234 you could do that and the spliced in lights would strobe with the lights they are spliced into. It would also void the warranty just so you are aware. There are other 4-light systems: # PRS70780 # CM93187 # ALP78304 (mentioned above) Or even an 8-light system, # HIL-STW and # HIL-STM.

  • Mounting Base Magnet Strength of Blazer LED Amber Warning Beacon C43A
  • The Blazer LED Amber Warning Beacon # C43A with magnetic mount does not carry a formal driving speed rating but I did go to our warehouse so I could try this light on a variety of steel/ferrous metal surfaces. When I placed this unit on a painted steel shelf structure so that all of its 4 disc magnets were in contact with the steel, it held with enough grip that I would expect only a direct hit from road debris (for example, a big chunk of tire tread from a blown tire) might be able to...

  • Flashing Amber Warning Light for Agricultural Equipment
  • For an amber agricultural light I recommend # W8260601 which was designed for this purpose. You could add # W002515 to wire it up. We also have amber flashing warning lights like # SLL43AB1 and # SLL43AB2 that can be wired to flash alternately. You would also need harness # A45PB for each and a grommet to mount them # A45GB.

The light uses 4 AA batteries for power and features a polycarbonate lens with sealed housing that is both durable and weather resistant. The lights used in the housing are LED's which are much brighter than standard incandescents.

  • The flashing by part # CPL65A-STR is done inside the light. These lights will flash, or strobe, 4 times per second as long as 12 volt power is supplied to the circuit they are attached to. You will need a switch to activate and shut down the flashing lights. We have the Derale Lighted On/Off Switch, item # D16740, that can be used for this install and would be good to keep you alerted that the flashing lights are on, if you hook up the lighted function of the switch.

They are intended to be simply connected to your battery positive and negative battery terminals. LED lights like this are polarity sensitive, so the lights will work when the correct wires are connected and will not work when the power and ground are reversed.

  • Does the Red Custer 4-LED # STRL4R Have More Than One Strobe Pattern?
  • The Custer 4-LED Strobe Light or Running Light - 3-Wire Pigtail - Red # STRL4R has the ability to be used as a running light or a strobe. It does not have a controller to change strobe patterns, so the integrated strobe pattern is what you see in the video and does not change. If you want to utilize a strobe controller, you can connect it to the black wire to give you whatever pattern you desire, but the red wire has only the one strobe pattern. You can use the Custer Multi-Function...

  • The Prostrobe Rocky 4 Pro - Amber Windshield Light # PRS70750 is a great option for the rear window of your 2011 Ford F-150 Crew Cab. The suction cups are very strong and more than capable of holding this light weighing about a pound. The 3 foot coiled cord will also give you the connection needed to your 12V system. The defrost grid should not be an issue with the suction cups, but ideally you'd have the suction cups between the grids if possible to ensure an even better connection.

  • I spoke with my contact at Alpena about the Alpena Twin Strobz Amber LED Flashers # ALP77234 that you referenced. He said that you can connect 1 additional LED light to each output on the control unit for a total of 4 lights per control unit. More than that is not advisable so you will need to have at least 2 control units for 8 lights.

  • How to Wire Custer 4-LED Strobe Light or Running Light STRL4A
  • On the Custer 4-LED Strobe Light or Running Light # STRL4A the black wire powers the steady-on running light and if power is applied to the red wire the strobe effect is activated. The white wire is of course the ground. A signal on the red wire will override the steady-on running light signal on the black wire and cause the unit to strobe, according to my contact at Custer. I actually went to our warehouse and tested the light and it operates as stated. LEDs are always on when the...

  • Amber and White LED Vehicle Strobe Lights
  • The circuitry for strobe lights # PRS70726 is not sophisticated enough to allow for alternate flashing of amber and white lights and it only has white lights. What I recommend is one amber set, such as # ALP77234, and one that is all white lights such as # PRS70726.

  • Can Two Sets Of Prostrobe Spotstrobz LED Lights Be Used At The Same Time On A Truck With Two Outlets
  • Since you have two outlets on your truck, you can use two sets of the # PRS70780 lights at one time with no problem. I may have a better option for you. I recommend the Vision X Tantrum Strobe Light Kit, part # HIL-STW. This system has 8 strobe lights and also includes a wireless remote that lets you operate the lights from up to 1,000-ft away. The lights can made to flash in a sequence, or burn solid, and it includes a microphone that lets the lights flash to a beat of the music....

  • Can Alpena Twin Strobz Amber LED Flashers Be Used Without Having to Use the ON/OFF Switch
  • The Alpena Twin Strobz Amber LED Flashers # ALP77234 can be connected to a fuse or directly to the vehicle's battery. If they are connected to a fuse that has power when the ignition is turned on but does not have power when the ignition is off, then you will be able to keep the light's switch turned "ON" and run the lights with the ignition. Connecting the flashers to an ignition powered fuse, like described, will also keep the ability to alternate options of the strobe feature.

  • Are Wires in Alpena Quad SlimStrobe Lights Long Enough to Mount Lights on 4 Corners of Jeep
  • You can place the Alpena strobe lights # ALP78304 anywhere that you want on your Jeep mail truck. If you want to mount the lights at the corners and keep the wires hidden then the wiring will probably not be long enough (I don't have an exact length). The wiring would have to be extended by cutting and splicing in additional wire. Another option, if the Jeep has a metal roof, is a magnetic mount light that plugs into a 12 volt power port (cigarette lighter) such as # RB10A. With this...

  • Which Wire is Ground on Custer 4-LED Strobe Light STRL4R
  • Wire colors on lights, and on vehicles and trailers too, can vary but most often white wires are ground. This is the case for the Custer light # STRL4R that you referenced. The black wire is for running lights and the red wire is for strobe as shown in the linked video. It is easy enough to find out by testing your lights with a 12V battery. Since nothing will work without a ground you can start by presuming your white wire is ground and then connecting each of the others, red and black,...

  • Is Prostrobe Rocky 8 Pro White Windshield Light PRS70747 Waterproof for Outside Use

  • How Long is the Wiring from Lights to Control Box for Alpena Twin Strobz ALP77234

  • Can the Custer LED Amber Quad Flash Kit # CPL65A-STR be Surface Mounted
  • The Custer LED Amber Quad Flash Kit, # CPL65A-STR, was not designed to be surface mounted. The sockets for the plug-in wiring harnesses protrude past the back of the light so they would not sit flat. The only surface mount flashing amber lights that we offer are magnetic lights like the Custer Adjustable Amber LED Emergency Light, # HF18A-MB. I have attached a link to all of our flashing warning lights for you to check out.

  • Does Prostrobe Rocky 8 Pro Emergency Light Come in Amber?
  • There is a Prostrobe emergency light that comes in amber but the Rocky 8 Pro # PRS70747 comes only in white. Instead you could use the Prostrobe Rocky 4 Pro # PRS70750 which is smaller but does come in amber. It will provide the same functions as the white Prostrobe but with 4 LEDs instead of 8. I've added links to a pair of video reviews of this light for you to take a look at as well.

  • Looking for a Magnetic Mount Rotary Warning Light with 12' Cord
  • The Magnetic Mount Amber Rotary Warning Light, # RB10A, comes with a 10' power cord. A longer cord is not available.

This light can be mounted anywhere on the roof of your vehicle without the hassle of a power cord. Only 4 AA batteries (high quality rechargeable batteries are definitely the way to go) are required and set-up is complete.
