    I also have the ARB Twin and used a CH4x4 switch and have had no problems without a relay.

    The ARB does have an internal relay, I used a separate relay when adding the CH4x4, call me paranoid, but I don’t want to risk a dash fire

    so im in the same situation as you were. ive been told the twin has a build in relay so no relay is needed. im assuming you've already got this installed how was the install process?

    wired up my ARB dual yesterday. i wired it to my Spod with the 4 wires that go to the switch. I sent the 6guage wires (redx2 and black/white with ground) to the battery. the black and purple were the neg and pos I put to the spod switch. it works great I am just curious on what are the yellow and green wire for? ive capped and stowed them for now

    There's a wiring diagram in the install manual.

    so just to confirm, you wired this using the isolation switch harness? rather than switch 1/2? the ARB instruction are garbage

    I didn’t have any issues with the diagram or instructions. I have some electrical background so reading the wiring as a schematic made sense to me.

    I’m glad I found this thread, I’m hoping to install my ARB single this weekend. But I need the OEM switch and switch panel for the cubby hole.

    Is everyone’s CH4x4 switch, wired directly in with no relay still going strong?

    So I bought a CH4X4 switch for my compressor. A question I have is that the isolation switch is my on/off switch for the compressor correct? Switch 1 will be the switch for the rear locker correct?
