Flasher relay

I recently, changed out most of my lights , from incandescent to LED's .
The turn signals flash very rapidly, they still go on and completely off .
I have two options , 1- I can add resistors at each bulb, or 2- I can change out the flasher relay, the problem with DOOR number 2 is that I can't locate the flasher.

Anybody out there that might have an idea? The owners manual
has nothing on the flasher location.

Thanks John M

John-

I see by your profile that you have a 2008 Winnebago View 24H. That's based on the Sprinter chassis, isn't it?

The "traditional" way to find the relay is to hit the hazard flasher button and listen for the relay clicking under the dash (or wherever it may be).

I'll do some more research.

John-

Both etrailer and superbrightleds say the 2008 Sprinter 3500 requires load resistors, rather than a flasher replacement. Note that superbrightleds offers two load resistor types, one for turn signals (6 ohm/50W) and one for side marker signals (25 ohm/25W).

This implies that the flasher relay is not easily replaced. It may be like our 2009 Fit, where the flasher relay is part of a circuit board in the instrument cluster- not a separate relay. Or it could be a non-standard relay.

I didn't have the time to install load resistors on our Fit, so I elected to remove the new LED bulbs from the Fit's turn signal housings and put the old incandescent bulbs back in. I left the brake and backup bulbs as LEDs. You could do that, too.

If the turn signals aren't on as often as the brake lights (e.g., when the brake lights function as the park or running lights), then you really don't give up much to leave the turn signals as incandescent bulbs.

Flasher relay

Thank you all ,for your input.
Sorry for not supplying more info about the ( Home ) ,I will next time.

Listen for the clicking ,what could be more logical . .

I think I will go back, to the incandescent bulbs as pointed
out by, l1v3fr33ord1.

I was told that this , irv2.com forum , was a good place to , get and give
info, without any smart ( butts ) ruining it for the other members.

In reading some of the other posts, I can't agree more that I , found a
good forum , to help with owning a RV .

John M

I hope to update my/our profile soon , to be more open and Sociable
with other members.

Thanks john m
