Isolation harness

Going to be wiring with my own three LT for my trailer. Wondering about in isolation harness that everyone is talking about. Is there a specific one that is needed? White a lot of boat trailers to my drugs and I’ve never used one so. Thanks for the help in advance. Bryan

Oh you're not alone there, some of the text messages I have sent to friends probably had them wondering if I had a stroke.

Re: Isolation harness

The LT wiring is not robust enough to handle additional bulb loads, LEDs maybe, of a trailer. Bushtec sells an isolater for about $110.

It uses small relays controlled by signals from the bikes wiring and then applies the higher current from a separate 12 input for the trailer lighting. I use one even though I have converted my trailer to all LED lights. It gives me peace of mind that I will not fry the bikes harness.
