Hi all, after a regrettable caravan fence post interface while attempting to back into the drive that's at a right angle with the road (no idea what happened, I can do it in a couple of shunts usually!) I have bought and received some second hand units, but due to the lights being in a different order to my originals I had to buy one pair and then an extra single one, meaning ive now got an indicator and then three usable red positions each side, and as ill be wiring the brake lights and tails to seperate positions in the cluster I plan to convert the lot to LED items. The main reason i wish to do this is mainly due to current draw, not to mention how slow to react double filament bulbs are, braking wise, an instant display of me braking has to be very important. I have replaced all of the wiring right from the 12n plug to the units over the spring time due to it all being bugg, err, worn out, but although everything now works as it should, it isnt quite as bright as id like it to be, I have double triple quadruple checked everything and every single connection is tip top, I think the car struggles to run a whole set of extra lamps, hence the LED plans, the towbar was only fitted a couple or 3 years ago and was done properly (I binned the supplied scotch locks!) So I know that's all ok, I already had a pair of festoon led bulbs so ive swapped the front marker position lights and they look brilliant in comparison. I know that I can do the stops tails and fogs with led no problems, but im just wondering if the indicator beepers require a certain draw of current to work, because if they do then ill need to buy more expensive error free items, which for all intents and purposes utterly defeats the object, so if this is likely to be the case then ill just leave them as standard filament bulbs, im intrigued to know if anyone has tried and can confirm (or deny) if im likely to run into issues with this. Many thanks in advance
