Finally got to tear all the old school surge actuator, master cylinder and other stuff out of the tongue today for the EOH conversion. Is there any need to use the wire from the reverse lockout solenoid which goes to the blue wire on the 5 pin flat connector for power? Does the plug and play system basically relegate the 5 pin flat connector to be just a standard 4 pin connector (5th pin-blue wire is dead)? I didn't think so, but then after thinking about it, I am not sure.

Answer to above question. Called Hydrastar today and asked them. No solenoid wire needed. 5 pin basically becomes a 4 pin with the blue wire dead and gone.

Now the latest problem. Dang plug and play wires from battery are not long enough from where the battery is mounted. Funny, the wires from the actuator are are too short and the main wiring harness to the tow vehicle is long enough to reach the back seat. Going to call them again tomorrow and try to get a longer (only 2-3 in. needed to connect) P&P battery wire made up from Hydrastar. Hope they make them or else I will be cutting the no hardwiring necessary connections and hardwiring to make the distance. Best laid plans!!!

Just an FYI. Hydrastar seems to be very accomodating. Talked to them this morning and they said they could have a longer P&P battery/breakaway switch wire made up. Would take about 2 two weeks as their cables are not made in house.
