Rear, DS, taillight Panel

Post by berger » Tue Sep 03, 2013 7:56 am

Hey Guys.

While my truck is apart, I decided to replace the DS taillight mount panel. I damaged it on my last excursion and it was cheaper to replace. On the rear of the panel here is a conical shaped protrusion and the front is covered by a tiny square patch. Is this a blackout light mount? Mine had wires running into it with a bad caulking job covering the hole, but the wires were just sitting loose in the void.

I'm curious to know what that is for too.

My truck had a 24V connector there. On the schematic it is marked battery charger socket - optional.

Really? Like a specialized plug?

Funny as I noticed it on the one that just sold on ebay and checked pics of mine to see if I had it, which I don't :?

Cool!

That would make trickle charging MUCH easier!

I have it on my 710K which has the 12 pin trailer plug as well. It's a heavy gauge 2 pin plug which I have the Mil # for somewhere.

Raises the question, is it to be used with the master power switch in the on or off position?

Guess I need to study the schematic. :lol:

The schematic shows the wire going to the starter so you would need to have the battery disconnect key in place but not the ignition switched on.
