Just got some standalone HID lights from sloan and wondering the best way to wire them. Thinking of running wires right from the battery through a switch in the cab right to the lights. Would that be the best way to do it? Were else would you tie into for power? thanks

Have a 2366. Mounted Sloan HID lights on each mirror bracket bolts. Ran wire through where "flasher" wire runs (behind cab headlight assemblies). Tapped into FLOOD (either of outside two lights) wiring and replaced the 2 original circuit fuses with (2) 25 amp mini fuses (there is a fuse for both right and left flood lights). Works great, no drilling -replaced original 12mm mirror bracket bolt with a longer one to accomadate for light bracket. Make sure to put bigger fuse in because the HID lights draw 20 amps to start but only run on 3.18 amps!!

I just did the same thing on our 7010 what I did was use the 2 existing plugsunderneath the cab that are a 3 prong female plug that are factory wired for european models that they use for headlights those plugs are wired all the way back to the fuse block and the relay to run them are all there the only thing you have to do to make those plugs hot is run a signal wire from your light switch in the cab to the relay that is in your relay stack that controls the low beam headlights for the european models american combines dont use that relay and fuse for anything so it is a way to add lights neatly and correctly be properly fused and come on and off with your standard cab work light switch and not have to run much wire
