What are you using your upfitter switches for?

I'm just looking for ideas to use my upfitter switches. I only have one in use (high idle mod) and am looking for uses on the other 3. Let me know what your doing with them.

I'm going to hook my Rear Camera up to one so I can turn it on and check on my trailer while going down the road. Also will hook up a set of Auxiliary Back Up Lights to one. As well as the High Idle.

Those are are good ideas but I already have them. My back up camera automatically comes on thru my head unit when in reverse. Then I wired back-up lights to come on in reverse and running lights on.

Yeah, I get that. But I want to be able to control both remotely from the gear shift. It's nice to have the extra light when connecting the trailer (wiring, safety chains, etc.) after getting things lined up and with the truck in park. Also want to be able to activate the rear cam while going down the road to keep tabs on my trailers, etc. without having to stop and putting the truck in reverse. The other switch will probably be to activate a winch solenoid.

I think the load is lightest for switch 4 then the load capability progresses to switch 1 and 1 is the switch for the highest load of all the switches.

4 is high idle
3 is rear camera
today 2(or 1) will be for a winch

1. Forward Fog Lights (grill mount)
2. Rear Fog/Reverse Lights
3. Open
4. Open (possible on-board Compressor)

At the moment these are the planned usage. Still haven't gotten to that stage of my build.
