    recently finished up my ARB dual compressor installation and was ready to wire it up to my NSA box. For anyone wondering how to do this, it is easy.

    Step 1:
    Cut off the supply loom spade connectors (or end connector if you've pressed the spades into the end connector). I cut it about 1" from the end connector just in case I want to ever reattach the supply loom to the switch loom.

    Step 2*:
    *If you do not have a need for the front or rear air locker wires (yellow & dk green, per schematic) then tape the yellow and dk green wires to the harness and out of your way and move on to step 3, this is what the figure shows since I do not have front or rear ARB air lockers at this time.
    *If you do have a need for the front or rear air locker wires to control your totally badass ARB air lockers then attach the yellow and dk green wires to separate output wires on the NSA trail toys box to control each locker individually. I recommend making the compressor #1 and then these #2 and #3 like @SMKYTXN did, but its your box do with it what you want but you need the compressor on BEFORE you go clicking your air lockers on and this method of wiring removes the idiot-proof switch loom....... don't say you weren't warned.

    Step 3:
    Attach the purple wire to an NSA trail toys box output wire (I picked #1, since it was my first accessory hooked to the box and it seemed important enough to be #1). And then attach the black wire to an appropriate ground.

    Step 4:
    press your selected output button on the remote, VOILA! air on demand!!!
    (if this didnt work verify your box is set up correctly and that the function that you picked is a "toggle" and not a momentary).

    Control Issue....Frustrating

    Have had the NSA on my truck for 2 years, worked great. Haven't really used it all summer due to longer days, so I was checking things out this weekend and came up with an issue, the controller isn't staying "engaged". Bullet points below to explain....

    - Controller didn't work so I checked the box interior, clean and dry, no visible issues, changed battery in controller.
    - Went to re-program controller, interior panel light would not come on when pressing button.
    - Dis-connected power, checked the bottom of board all looks good.
    - Re-connected power, pushed button, light came on, re-programmed controller, lights worked as before, cool.
    - Started truck, everything still works fine, re-installed cover, everything still works fine, cool.
    - Moved truck to other side of driveway, checked lights, everything still works, cool. Engine off, drink beer, cool.
    - Check it 30 minutes later and Fuq, not cool, no lights.
    - Re-peat process from line 3 and same results. Works and then not works, not cool. Frustrated.
    - Did this 3 times, same results - works great, then it doesn't.
    - No other electronic changes in truck. Controller has always been kept next to my garage door opener in right cubby.
    - Closed garage door to check alignment, lights on-off no issues. Control system just seems to peter-out after awhile.
    - The panel has always been hooked direct to battery without issue, but I now notice the Blue Sea Circuit Breaker below and in others posts.

    IS it the controller, IS it the mother board switch, IS it the lack of breaker, IS it me................Help, input is appreciated.

    I sold the Land Cruiser I had installed mine in, and now I'm into a new truck I'm thinking about adding another panel on. Curious if there have been any updates or changes to the panel in the last ~12 months or so? Has the remote design changed to something a little more sleek? Not a big deal, but it would be cool if there was an option for a smaller/more discrete remote.

    It's nice to hear that you're considering a second one for the new rig. To answer your question, no there haven't been any changes in the last year.

    I really liked the simplicity of it and being able to turn on/off from a distance. This one may go in the bed of a truck with an aluminum topper on top. Do you foresee any issues with the remote signal going through the aluminum topper and into a wooden storage box where the aux/second battery is?

    I don't see that being any different that the unit being placed under the hood. You should be fine.
