Us gear control install

Does anyone know if the block diode that goes in the coach is the same that goes in the toad?

Uh, what block diode? IF you are talking about the US gear brake system there is no block diode.

A diode is a diode - they are basically electrical check valves. The diode has to be oriented so that electricity can flow only in the desired direction, but other than the amp rating, they are all the same.

Thanks for the input. The reason I ask is I bought a Toad the already the US gear part installed. I need to install the Coach side. When I called US gear they told me I would need Parts: TC-6000K (control), EC-4115A (harness), and PD-6000 (blocking diode). I know diodes can be purchased at Auto parts stores/radio shack and other places. I was just trying to find the specs rather than paying upwards of $40 for one.
