Like I thought...the modulators on ebay only modulate the incoming power signal...some even say "For 3rd brake light".
There is no option for how a typical 4 wire (Ground, Parking and split Turn/Brake elements) trailer is set-up.


If you install these on a typical 4 wire set-up, it will make the turn strobe exactly like the brake activation...maybe that's OK, but not what I was looking for. And the GS-100 is set to strobe 4x, then flash 4x, then solid...how would a normal turn signal operate with that?


Thanks

If you would wire one of these at the brake switch then it will only effect the brake function. The problem is that most all systems are combined brake and turn on one bulb filament. No way to differentiate between which function is enabling the wire except to modulate before the turn signal switch.
