Wiring troubles

How-do-you-do? I haven't Got much of a response from my last post, So, I'll move it to the back. New problem..... Up here in Northern Michigan we get a lot of SNOW. I have a light on top of a pole on my snow blower. Now I wish to make it blink. Does anyone know how I can do this? The light is a trailer tail light and it is on all the time. As I come to the road I want people to know I'm there. I don't need to get high tech. Just blink. ...... Any toughs, Jerry

A really simple way to make it blink is get yourself one of them round 2 terminal turn signal Flashers from the local auto parts. Then wire it in series in the power wire that feeds your lamp. It should make your lamp flash like a turn signal...

Jerry,

To make a led flash you can use one of the flashers for led lights. A little pricey but it is simple to do. I bet if you look about the net you can find an LED that has a flasher built in..Good luck..

Or... you can just buy a flashing LED fixture and replace the one you have now, as suggested in Post #2. I'm lazy. I'd go that way. The start at $4 on Amazon.
