Solid State (LED) or 552 Flasher?
This comment from Everett#2390 got me thinking about this again...
"However, if going to LED, use a 552 flasher as it does not care about current drawn as a 512 flasher does to flash"
I remember back in my RV tech days that we would replace the factory flasher with a "heavy duty" flasher when we wired a vehicle for a trailer to keep the flash rate at a normal speed. It's internally wired so it has it's own load to sense, regardless of the bulb load. The heavy duty we used must have been the 552. I always wondered if this would work for LED lights but never tried it.
If that's the case why all the hubbub of going with an electronic flasher???
