    Trailer lights connection, make pigtail

    I going to install trailer lights on my R100RT. I would like make a pig tail instead of cutting into the lines. Where the connection by the battery, I would like to make the pig tail I could remove when I don't pull a trailer. I wound if anyone knows where I might get the connections to make a splitter to hook up the trailer setup, and the rear lights.

    Basically any automotive store.

    Oh yeah, Tractor Supply!

    You just need a 4 wire pigtail kit.

    Not sure what you mean

    I don't want to splice the wires, and no auto parts store has the plug ends to fit.
    I did find a site that might have connectors.

    www.qualitycycleparts.com/


    I want to be able to remove the trailer lights when not in use and not alter the wiring by splicing.
    I think this is more a Airhead wire issue but I guess I am wrong because someone moved it.

    Prolly cause you mentioned "trailer"...

    Anyways...Talk to these folks or just add your own plug(s).

    But you do want to isolate.

    How do you plan on turn signals w/o cutting in?

    It's better to isolate the trailer from the system w/ it's own power lead.
