Ok, here's just a little more on the cause of the mysterious power drain that turned out to be brake lights. I said that the issue was with the adjustment on the rod connecting the switch and the brake pedal. Technically, that is true but as it turns out there was another issue that was the real reason for all this.

For some reason, my brake pedal is not returning to its fully neutral position. So, for now I am turning off my service lights when I'm away from the truck until I have a handle on the pedal issue. This may mean having to drop the pedals from the mount and check everything out, which is going to be a bit of a bother since I have a ROPS kit. When I put my new master cylinder in, I had the whole assembly out and it got cleaned and lubed so I'm very curious as to why things are hanging up at this point. Perhaps the cause is that the pedal's slack adjuster is out of adjustment. We shall see.

Anyway, if you are experiencing a mysterious power drain, have a look at your brake pedal first. If it's a little forward of where it ought to be when it's at rest, that just might be the cause of your troubles.

Cheers,
TJ
