    Amp Draw

    I did the math(hopefully correct) and found that just one light(alley) drew 3.48 AMPS with my Multi Meter testing for current. I then added all the lights together at 3.48 amps x 15 lights total for about a 55 Amp draw if the bar was full on. This is a Vista with 5 rotators, takedowns, alley...

    Whelen Val U Bar

    I found an all Amber Val u bar local for sale. It was originally two rotators, but he added two fast star rotators for total of 4 rotators. It has the black cover in the middle, not an all light version. Are these good lights? And worth the 175 asking price? I'm getting rid of my jet strobes and...

    Thoughts on Vista

    I got a cool Federal Vista this week for only 25 dollars in working condition and complete. It has some problems that are not a big deal and I'm going to fix it. Mainly someone rigged it up so just the rotators and front take downs work. It has 5 rotators, flashers front rear, take downs, alleys...

    Measuring amps/watts.

    I have a multimeter. What is the best way to determine the amp draw/wattage of a light bar such as a Federal Vista? I'm guessing measuring the current as the light is on.

    Proper wiring.

    I'm about to finally install my Jetstrobe light bar on my truck. I want to add some grill lights later. I would come off the battery with a circuit breaker and into the control head, then to the lights? Should I go to some sort of distribution box that I can hook in some grill lights later...

    found:JetStrobe Amber Spacer/filters.

    I'm looking for the Ambered colored spacers that go between the strobes on my JetStrobe. As you can see mine has none, just the Strobes. I'd like this bar to be complete. Thanks.

    Choosing controllers

    I have an old Federal Signal Jetstrobe light bar and need to connect up a controller box to it, but have not a clue what to get or look for. I'm guessing some main heavy power wires connect to the control box from the car battery and ground, then all the trigger wires are connected to the box...
