    Are the AUX switches in the Superduty 250 compatible with the Raptor? i.e., are they the same size?

    I talked to a tech at DMH Performance about the electrical cutout question using the AUX switches on the Raptor... he said he heard that some guys have used the switches from the Superduty 250 as they can come "di-pole" for controlling things like a winch... he thought they were the same size. It would be a different color, but would be a cheaper option than getting the control module from Hennesey????

    I've had both trucks and far as I can tell they are the same, even the amp ratings. An electric dipole is a separation of positive and negative charges. I don't know of a winch with a negative charge.

    I don't see why you couldn't use the Aux in the Raptor, unless the amp draw were over the amp ratings of the factory switches.

    The AUX switch in the raptor is a monopole simple on/off switch... it would work if it were dipole with power in both directions to open/close the valve.... but its not.

    So, trying to use the switch as is, will run continuous power to open it and burn out the motor if left in the on position... so turn it off, but then the valve stays open with no way to close it.
