I started a thread on a problem with my brake lights in the electrical forum and want to add to it after many comments by other stovebolters. However there is no "post reply" box or any other way to post a reply. I can post new threads but for some reason I'm blocked to replying to my own thread! Please help.

The moderator locked the thread. You'll need to PM the mod and ask him.

Your 6v electrical thread got trashed by lectures suggesting that going to 12v is a necessity? Maybe this is why the Moderator locked that thread.

You can easily stay 6v, if you have good grounds, and if you have 2 gauge or fatter (lower number gauge) battery cables and all 2 gauge or fatter braided grounding cables/straps.

You can also run a few new/additional 12v circuits/devices by using converters from 6v to 12v.

Thanks for the response!
I had no idea the thread was locked. I have no problems with keeping it 6v - its not like I'm relying on it for everyday use. But that is not my problem anyway.

Even if you use it on a daily basis, 6v was all there was b4 12v. for years and years. And it was reliable as anything else on the road. As long as it was properly maintained, the same as anything else on the road today. Good luck.
