I would put a pull string with the three other wires you ran. If you need another wire the pull string makes the job easier.

I think if we call it a 'pull' string instead of a 'poll' string, it might be better understood. Good idea. But why not just double the amount of wires first, then save the last one as a pul string.

I plan on doing a extra gauge or two later on. but for now its just re plan. get running the best, get cleaned up. then start getting ready for winter sleep

Fixed A pull string will allow greater flexability for the next wire needed. Choice of color comes to mind if you use a dedicated color to make tracing easier. Also the wire gauge and if you need solid core or stranded wire. I admit that solid core does not work well for most automotive applications.

That'* what I'd do.

Heck yeah!

bill did it in his car and your brother probably has it in his Jeep as well. it typically has three buttons that you can set to control up to three garages. good feature to consider...
