Has anybody wired a four pin trailer to the five wire Goldwing using diodes? If so what number diode did you use? I have a whole bag of 1N4007, and 1N4002. The seven is 1000 V diode but only one amp. The two is a 100 V diode and still just one amp. Interested in what someone else has used. Thanks Ron

You will need a little more circuitry than just diodes. Typically a relay or transistor is used to handle the conversion.

Much easier to just buy a plug & play trailer adapter.

Using diodes only won’t work when using the turn signals and brakes simultaneously.
