First thing I needed was a wiring harness for the lights of the trailer. Little Guy told me I needed a 7 pin flat connector 1 1/2 inch. To finally get that information and to find one was more complicated than necessary but I got it. I have to get one tiny piece and it should be ready to plug in. I also have to figure out what kind of brake controller to get since the trailer has electric breaks and also I am told since the trailer has it's own battery that one of the pins charges the battery while I am driving... so I have to figure out what that is all about.
mchitch attached under the seat... then it is wired to the back where the 7 pin connector is attached.
We also had to use the ACC switch in the fairing so I would have reverse lights. Harleys do not have a reverse so in case I need to push it backwards while on Blue in the dark I can now do that with the ACC switch.
The mechanic and I found out that the wiring to the ACC switch is under the seat.. this was very helpful but of course not the first place we looked. Since we had the front of the fairing off we changed the headlight bulb since it was getting low.
The next thing we needed to do was replace the rear brakes which was a breeze.
I started thinking of that part in the Wizard of Oz when the flying monkeys attack the Tin Man, Lion and Scarecrow and the Scarecrow had a piece of himself in many different places. Kind of made me chuckle. I could just imagine Blue saying "he took off my trunk and put it over there... he took off my fairing and put it over there... he took off my saddle bag and put it over there..."
