Jkski, just be sure to check the interal clearance. Iirc stove heads are just over 1"deep. You don't want that bulb touching anything. The whelen foam seals pretty well, but add sealant where needed.
I mounted the 6head pack under my driver seat and wired it up to the acc. Vehicle has to be on to run the strobes. I'm on 8yrs with my install and not a single problem. I'm a volunteer fireman so they do gets used often.

Thanks for the reply.
I now have the bulbs in each of the light housings and sealed them in with RTV as suggested. Next I moved on to mounting my power supply which I chose to place under my rear seat (CrewCab truck). I put spacers down to keep it off the carpet to help it stay cooler as a pre-caution so next is to run the wiring to each of the bulbs and the power.

For the power, the schematic shows running to a switch then straight to the battery, which is easy but then they also show a second switch, a "momentary switch" that gets wired to another power source like an accessory and it is my understanding that when the unit is powered on, if you hit this switch it is what changes the flash pattern. So, if I were to choose not to connect this switch, does anyone know if the unit will still operate at the default flash pattern?

I am trying to stick with a very clean install and am hiding the switch(s) so the fewer the better.

It will run without the momentary switch. I don't have one as the pattern stays the same.

Just wanted to say thanks again for all of the great advice, the install was successful. It took about 5 hours to get all of the wires run, secured, connections made and then put everything back together after it was tested but it looks awesome.
Thanks guys.
