I'm currently running a VF28 relay in my Jimco, however it's discontunued and I'm about to wire a new Tatum. Wondered what everyone was using in terms of a weatherpack or other weather sealed connector relay?
this is a decent relay, but there is a newer, and better alternative.
they serve two entirely different functions.Im just trying to better understand good wiring technique, do you guys use relays and breakers or if you use a resettable breaker are relays not needed?
I have been using these with good luck. I like how stout they are.ive seen quite a few failures in smaller hella relays over the years as well. so much that i have tried to stay away from using them altogether. this changed the way i wired vehicles and i am now much happier with my wiring jobs.
i started using cooper bussman power relay modules about a year or so ago. Link here: power relay module .
The price isnt bad and they have been used on heavy equipment for some years now. the signal connectors can be purchased at the chevy dealer or online and there are different configurations available like sealed power connectors instead of studs. but the link posted is the best all around unit available. its been a great product for wiring prerunners, play vehicles and adding on circuits to newer vehicles. if theres an issue the terminals can be jumped very quickly and its great for high current loads.
anybody else been using these?
