Spod + ARB wiring harness - What can I remove?

Hooked up the ARB compressor harness to the Spod today.

What if any wires can I now eliminate from the ARB? Can i get rid of everything except what is connected to the ARB/Spod harness? Does the Spod provide power to accessories or do I still need to wire power to the battery?

That is the beauty of the sPOD-just hook up the pos & neg wires from the compressor directly to the pos/neg under the sPOD cover.

Guys. I plan on running the power to the battery but want to shorten up the connection to the ARB harness on the Spod.

I ripped out the entire ARB wiring loom today. It seems like I need to cut/splice some of the ARB wires in order to shorten it up for the Spod. Is this consistent with everyone else's experience? If not, it looks like I still need to keep the entire loom as is, looping it from the compressor, to the battery, back to the compressor side to the ARB/Spod harness. This still keeps all the relays intact/etc, which is what i thought was the purpose of the Spod.

Can i cut any of this and shorten it up?

Just make a drawing of the orignal harness so you can put it back exactly how the manufacture intended. It realy doesn't matter what equipment that you use for the controls ( SPod, ARB, Ect ). Just as long as the control circuitry stays the same. Then you can rip the system out and rewire it back to what ever control device you choose. Switches and wiring are all the same ( as long as they have the same rating). But I would stick with the ARB relays.
