Okay, I give credit where it's due, this lighting control setup is ZJR's design, and this is my modification I had to do due to my recent install of my RiverRaider Snorkel. All info on the original design can be found on a search for "EF's Pod"
The following are my changes:
When I installed my RROR snorkel, I had to rotate the battery 90 Degrees to allow for the intake to come into the engine bay from the snorkel.
This is where I had the original EF's Pod
As you can see, it will not fit where the new battery location is. As of this date with the sh!tty weather and me getting home until well after dark, I have not installed this new product yet. I have, however test fitted the new "brain" and it will fit under the hose at the front fender side of the battery compartment. This picture shows the routing of the intake hose from the snorkel.
Here is the old
And new "brain"
My main changes are the following, hence, the name change to the MM's Pod
I changed the fuses from Tombstone type in in-line fuse holders that protrude onto the outside of the unit to cartridge type that are contained in the unit for space purposes.
Because the fuses are now inside the unit, if they ever blew, I needed longer control and feeder wires so I can remove the whole unit and set it near the fender and change fuses.
Dusttight fittings for the individual load wires. I will post later about these but I've already spent longer on this post than I wanted to.
Here are the pictures from my bullet points in RED. (2)
