I was able to use a spade lug and slide it into the switch. I'd think that Workhorse uses the same switch on all W series --- I added a relay, used a spade lug into the dash fuse box that went hot with key on, and grabbed a feed from the spare hot wire on the fuse box-- no need to cut any wires.

Hello Again,

Here is a last update. Have the US Gear brake system hooked up and operational. The Blue wire coming off the brake switch (Workhorse) was the wire that provided me power when the brake was applied and was not affected by the 4 way flashers.

For the 12 VDC power, I taped into the dash radio line. There are 2 yellow wires going into the radio plug. The one that goes in as yellow and goes out to the radio as red is the one you want.

Gettin' to be time to decide on a braking system. I've looked at the US Gear brake, but the local dealer doesn't seem to know how to fit it to my toad...not too many using this car I guess. Does anyone have an installer here in the Dallas or Texas area who would know how to do this install?
