So i wanna run some switches like the ones from the movie training day, I currently have the AVS-ARC-5PB-BK, Its a POS and would NOT recommend it, the buttons stick stick or you have to mash em to work... its just not a good time...
SOOOO!!!
i wanna run some ON-OFF-ON switch but i have no idea which ones to buy...
three prong? six prong? twelve prong?

I currently have a buttons for front up, front dump, rear up, rear dump, and pancake dump.
Im running 8 valves and its wired for four corners.
Id like either three or five switches(FBP or FBSSP) whatevers not too complicated
i think ill just use the wiring from the switch box i have and just cut the actual box off.

I am running 4 switches, tukn4s made me a diagram and recommended Pollack switches. I love my setup, much nicer and cleaner then a switch box.

I bought 2 of each of these.

And you can install them anywhere, I installed them under my dash control.

Forgive me for the edges of that voltmeter plate, need to clean off that glue.

Tukn4s said:
yeah i run 8 valves.
two 6 prong switches and two 3 prong switches

1 switch to operate both front bags
1 switch to operate both rear bags


1 switch to operate passenger front bag
1 switch to operate passenger rear bag
these two are just to level the truck if needed.

its a little jumbled.
red line is 12v+
blue line is to fill valve
green line is to dump valve

I only run carling switches. Had the same switches since 2009 with no issues. I had this billet switch panel made by a guy in San Jose, CA.

No problem.

Not sure what pricing you found Carlings at, but call Black Magic Hydraulics for them. I'm not familiar with the switch wiring for bags, but Ron (the owner) should be able to help you out. Click the link below and scroll down on the left for switches to see the pricing.
