LED Lamps & Flasher for GL1800

Post by seabeechief » Thu Feb 01, 2018 10:13 pm



This subject has been addressed many times, but I'm going blind looking at all the posts from way back when. I intend to install LED lamps in the rear of my '08 GL1800. I'm going to buy the lamps from M4 Products, who sells replacement lamps for RV's. They are a little pricey, but he has convinced me that the quality of LED lamps vary a lot, and his lamps are tops. I invite you to visit M4 Products and check out the website. It's impressive.

Now.....the flasher question rears its ugly head again. Is there an LED flasher any of you can recommend by name & number? If I install this new LED flasher either before or without changing the tail/brake/turn signal lamps, will it work properly?

Any other advice and/or counsel will be sincerely appreciated.

i havent replaced the turn signal led's yet on mine. but i did put led's on the brake lights, used the jumpers to have constant running lights and whole trunk lightup with brake lights with leds and there's no need for a flasher just for those. i have a 2015...

for the turn signals, you will need a flasher if you use led's...

I purchased the LED flasher from Electrical Connection and LED tail light package from SoCal. I'll have the flasher installed next month when I get the 24k service done. Since they have to remove the cowling to change the air filter, I figure that will be good time to install the flasher. And my hands won't bleed. I'll install the LED lamps when I get it back.

I would love to install some LED head lamps, but I'm not going to tackle that project. No way.

I'll post my results of the tail lights when the project is completed.

I installed the SoCal Pathfinder low beams in about a half hour with not too much effort. Toughest part is squeezing your hand into the opening. Great lights.

I also installed their Pathfinder LED cowl running/fog/drl/directional lights. The toughest part there was getting the Tupperware back together.
