• "Service Drive” and “Park” modes
How It Works
Takes power from the tail light circuit, wire #21, and converts it to 12 volts. That 12 volt power is fed into relays that are triggered by wires# 22-460 and 22-461, the left and right stop/turn circuits. The 12 volts from the power converter and relays are fed to a civilian trailer connector. The tractor versions have additional relays that provide separate turn and stop lighting circuits for semi trailers.
A note about power
The adapter will supply a total of 20 amps (240 watts) for trailer lighting. The standard 12 volt 1157 taillight bulb draws 26 watts for stop/turn and 8 watts for tail. A typical trailer setup of two stop/turn/tail light bulbs (one per side) with running lights on and brakes applied will use 68 watts, leaving 172 watts for marker lights (they tend to be 8 watts or less, so at least enough power for 20 of them). Or a ridiculous number of LED lamps. A load of greater than 240 watts will overload the converter and cause it to shutdown. The converter will auto-reset once the overload is cleared.

Needed a few extra wires to get back to truck connector or a way to get into connector to add wire for brake controler to use 12 volts for brake light switch wire but other than that worked pretty dern good thanks fellows
Trying it out and it seems like it's going to be what it says it's going to be what are portrayed to be in helping me transport my trailers with this adapter
