    FYI, I would never run any kind of light right from the High beam trigger wire. All that I tap into it for is to trigger a relay, it takes a few milliamps to close a relay and does not add any substantial load to the circuit. I have been running my set up for 2 years without issues.

    I would like to also say that I’ve been running the Gen 2 Relay since May and it has been nothing short of amazing. What makes the relay even better? Keith’s amazing customer service of course!

    How is your $375 relay panel different from wiring $7 relay to accomplish the same goal? Trying to understand the value proposition from your solution.

    here, on frf
    of course it will always be cheaper if you do it yourself. i personally wouldnt buy one, but thats because i know all about wiring and am in the automotive electronics industry, not for any other reason. what keith has done is made a solution thats easy for people who dont have the time to make a kit, or dont have the resources to parts to build it. being able to essentially add 6 aux switches to any trigger you want, is more than just a $7 relay. for a single application, sure one relay will work. but figure in 6 of them, a waterproof housing, main fuse, bolt on bracket, wiring haness, it adds up. as long as you follow the instructions, it removes the possibility of screwing something up for the less electrically inclined people.

    Appears to be a great solution for those not wanting to or not able to reinvent the wheel yet have a need for it. Doubt I ever will, but saved the link just in case.
