Re: USB plugs

I swear nothing easy, cut and dry with wiring, heck I never knew any of those even had a fuse in them. I'll cut it and find out!

Now any idea about the ground loop isolator. Hey maybe i'll google it!

Re: USB plugs

Scott, That's the exact same unit I bought. What do you think. Can I cut the plug off and hard wire it in using on of the wire from my array of individually wired power ports? I like the fact that you can turn each USB of and on on the plug bar.

Re: USB plugs

Williamson, I got no idea what those pictures are but I want to research your noise suppression info on the MP3. Now a key question since I never did it. I have wiring going to 2 powerports. can I just cut off the male end on my USB connector wiring and remove a power port to hard wire this thing in...

Re: USB plugs

AJ,
You brought up some good points. I didn't know about playing the sansa disk while plugged in may damage the battery. Also thanks for everybody's input, if it ever goes above freezing I may go out and try some new ideas.

Re: USB plugs

OK AJ were on the same trac for some of the stuff. Is your power supply hooked to a relay. 3 of mine are, and I wired them to shut down when the engine is turned off. 2 stay on, once again intentional. My issue is I get no noise when running anything using the powerports, it's when I went to USB thi...

Re: USB plugs

Keith, AJ; I have a 97 SE and there was no aux power source in either pocket. Maybe a year or two later they added this, I don't know, what year do you think they started this aux power source in the pocket? I pulled my stereo out and rewired it for a direct send. I had an issue once with water a a ...

Re: USB plugs

Keith, you got me a bit confused.....are you running this thru the factory stereo system? Your reference to running thru the speakers says yes, bud ear buds say no. I don't know what you got in your left pocket, but I got NOTHING so I don't know what kind of extra power supply you're talking about, ...

USB plugs

After years of ending up with 'too many power ports' I bought a 5 USB plug bar to run my camera, GPS and i-pod/mp3. I'll take the time to remove alot of the plugs because of the insert to get power is large and in the way....But for whatever reason if I use one powerport to run these items and I gon...

Re: Lactrical vs Compufire

flyinrob; doesn't the Lacatril require fairly extensive rewiring which would make the 40 amp in your trunk and ordeal on the road? I got a Ken Hemings high output and it's been running great and the wiring change wasn't drastic so I can throw my 40 amp back in pretty easy. Was Lacatril the alt. that...

Re: which repair manual should I get for 84interstate?clymer or haynes?

First off, how much do you know in general about charging systems? If you're troubleshooting, forums like this are better than any manual. I spent a few winters ago just studying electrical systems and how they work. How to use multi-meters. what schematics actually show and how to apply them to rea...

Re: 1991 Goldwing SE

Wow it's hard to believe any good upholsterer couldn't remake that seat for you. I've seen a few in our town and these guys do some magic. 4" is a lot, maybe there's too much junk under the seat to get that much room to push back though. Maybe adapting the seat pan and lifting the seat would work si...

I got a chance to take an FB6 for a ride. Honda got it right. I was thinking of going to an Indian scout just for a lighter bike but could not believe how light the FB6 felt and the way it handled.

We got gas/ethanol and summer gas mix.......Now i'm told we have gas/ ethanol and winter gas mix....... See how well the government watches us....the...
