    Wire Gauge ?/Two RV26's/Garage Display

    That is the plan, just keeping them stock. Just trying to get an idea on wire gauge with the stock bulbs and about 35 feet of wiring from the farthest light. Thanks!

    Wire Gauge ?/Two RV26's/Garage Display

    After further research, I noted the bulbs are GE4436, specs show 35W. So I figured 140 watts, 10 amps and a couple more for the motors, so about 12 amps. I read someone else put 100W in so I thought that was what all the bulbs were in these. Apparently not.

    DC Power Supply Needed

    I tried searching but did not find what I am looking for. I recently picked up two Unity RV-26's that I plan on displaying/operating. Looking for a DC power supply and figured I would ask as I am sure someone has done something similar. A current supply I am using on a very old display...

    Garage Mounting

    I picked up a couple of the rather large Unity RV-26's I plan on mounting in one of my hangars. An old lightbar mount would be great, any alternative ideas? Searched but really couldn't find anything regarding this. Thanks in advance! Marty

    Hello from IL, (I know)

    I dispatched for SPD from '82-'85 and then sworn with SPD from '85 to 2011. Did some arson 'work' during that time, too. Marty Towsley

    Hello from IL, (I know)

    I spent many years under Federals and then Streethawks as a P.O. in Springfield. Just came across a very nice set of red and blue Spitfire Unity RV-26's at an antique store. Price was right and they work great.
