I installed a powered turn signal convertor on my 1500. Looking to do another on a different bike. Is the powered one needed? Or can you get by with just a 3/2 wire convertor?

5/4 3/2 one and the same. You are converting the left turn, right turn, and stop to a 2 wire system. The tail and ground stay the same. My question was that some are 12 volt powered. Meaning that the trailer lights run direct from the battery, not from the light circut.

You could get away with a direct system if the trailer has LED lights. It might be too much to ask of the bikes wiring if using regular incandescent bulbs.

I'm using the power from the battery one on my 1100 for the pure fact that the charging system on the 1100 won't handle the power.I would use the battery powered one for the none worry set-up. I got mine from Farm and Fleet.

mine is an isolator/converter that also acts as a relay as it pulls the power for the lights from the battery instead of the charging system. doesn't matter much now as all my lights on the bike and the trailer are now led's.
