Jerry I presume the turn signal module is a heavy duty flasher or variant of that. I spoke again with Blue Ox and the rep disc used the hitch immobilizer which is the anti rattle pins? The immobilizer is essentially 2 U type clamps that on the hitch connection that take slop out of where the receiver meets tow bar. Since I'll likely need a drop or rise and an extension, I will get not.

The Jeep uses the same bulb for brake and turning so not and many being powered. Unless lights are on, which I tend to turn on, the tail and parking lights won't be on. But as I said, I like to be visible. Habit from motorcycle riding. Maybe if they can see you, they won't run into you. Yes I said MAYBE. Some people are clueless and a danger, especially behind the wheel. But that topic could easily generate a thousand reply thread.

I'll look into a charging module because we may have several days driving without disconnecting and driving the toad. I also carry a battery tender which can be plugged in when we stop. When I installed the Hopkins wiring, I didn't have to cut any wires. I will at the 6 pole ply but no soldering required. I prefer solder and heat shrink rather than crimp connectors too.

I installed the jeep harness today on our JK. Took all of about 1 hour. It actually took longer looking over directions. If you do the Jeep one from Jeep, just drill from inside behind carpet in the proper area. My harness fell out the bottom. I found no need to tear the entire fender off. I di have the tire off as i rotated the tires today. Only complaint is the harness plug between the RV pigtail and Jeep. I think I'l going to install a 7 way RV plug on the jeep bumper and a plug on the pigtail also to make it easier and cleaner install.
