Definitely enough for me to almost understand - as long as noone ever asked me to explain it myself. Thanx.

Now for the crucial question - what specs on this thing need to change if I am running 4 gauge lights off of this gizmo?

And to make sure I understand -

Illum + in the schematic is the wire that has 12V+ when my lights are on.

Illum - in the schematic is the wire that varies based on the dimmer from 0V (brightest) to 12V (dash lights off).

I ground the gizmo.

And the output goes to my light + on the gauge.

The problem is Omori shares the ground between the gauge and the lights and if you connect the Illum (-) to it then you are dimming the gauge power when you dim your lights! (or worse)

Thanks for the great info on this.
