nice thread guys--i'm in a similar stage that Silverhoot was in: now that you're probably finished: What did you end of doing and what would you do differently. Here's my current sitiuation on my 1956
bubble. with a few questions below.
1. the trailer had a 4 pin light connector and everything worked properly
2. i just cut this 4 wire harness and sent it into my trailer to my junction box under my front dinette seat.
3. I also just ran my new 7 pin harness (wired end) into the same spot to connect to the junction box.
4. while I was drilling holes I drilled another hole to send a 12 gauge wire which will eventually be my trailer brake wire (which i'll need to split in two to go to my two wheels right?)
here are a couple questions as i'm learning the light and brake system:
a--can i just run one larger 8 gauge wire from my junction box direct to my battery--so the alternator of the tow vehical charges (the battery's conected to my progressive dynamics converter). If so--do i ever need to disconect this lead to the battery when not in tow?
b--if my 4 pin lights worked fine--can i just link in my white wire from the 4 pin harness to the junction box with the 7 pin white wire as well. I can assume it's grounded fine somewhere if it's currently working right?
c. I havn't purchased a brake controller yet as i'm still rebuilding the bubble. my main tow vehicle will be a 2005 odyssey van. What controller would you recommend.
am i missing anything else? you can see my progress at the thread i started called: 1956
bubble restoration start to finish (for reference if needed).
I've done everything in the interior from scratch--but i'm using the 4 pin harness as a splice since i have easy access to it and couldn't imagine finding the original wiring.
your help is appreciated--cheers--ted
