Wiring 95 Chev 2500 4x4 as toad.

I have been told I should be able to wire my 95 Chev pickup through the fuse box for lights when used as a toad. Does anyone have any ideas about this. I may just get some magnetic lights and plug them in.

Blue Ox has a diode kit which uses the coach lights through the toad lights. Just take off the toad rear lens plug in the diode and it's done. you do have to run the wire and have a disconnect

That is a heavy dinghy. make sure you have the hitch capacity as well as the towing capacity with the RV.

Thanks Ken.
The pickup weighs in at 5600 lbs. I do have a 6000 lb Stowmaster hitch. Our MH is a 2003 Alpine with 400 Cummins. I am continuing to watch for something a little lighter but for now I am trying to use this.

Diodes are not hard to install I use them.Can your 4x4 be pulled all four down? You will be Maxing out that tow bar.

I was wondering about the installation of diodes and need to do more research on how to install. Yes, my pickup is a 4x4 with manual transfer case. According to what I have read I can just kick transfer case into neutral with ignition on and pull 4 wheels down.. I am also going to look at some braking system.
