    2018 5085E Electrical wiring help

    Hey guys,

    I’m looking to add a second 12v outlet in the cab and add switches in 2 of the switch blanks on the side console. Can you guys help me out? Is there a terminal block where power can be picked up and what is the easiest way to gain access to the inside?

    Look in your owners manual. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my 2032r had multiple fuse blocks, one of which is between the seat and the right side console. Once you know the fuseblock you are going to use, you can decide if you want to piggyback off of existing fuses using a fuse expander, or find a hot wire source and create new fuse slots in unused places in the fusebox. For what you are looking to do I would go with the later option. Tractor Tim knows the part number for the connector.....wait, here it is: wire connector: NAPA Part # NW 725452 this is from his Artillian Diverter install video. The concept would be the same for your tractor. Diverter Install.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the info I will look into the owners manual and see what I can find. I did forget to mention that it is a cab tractor.

    If the owners manual doesn't give you information on the best way to take apart the console to add some wiring I have that tractor and its technical service manual and can send you information on it if you PM me.

    The side console where you want to install the switches is on the opposite side of the fuse panel so that woud be a hard run, but there is a 12V utliity outlet (the one with the screwed connector) within a few inches of those blanks that should be simple to tap off of.
