What two 12V modifications??

There's a bunch of wires wrapped up under the dash of my new blower. I took them apart, and there's three separate 12 volt feeds just waiting for something to be plugged into them. I'm thinking an hour meter for one.

Any suggestions for the other two? It already has a pretty bright light on it, although I could add an additional LED light bar.

What else is there?

It comes standard with those. Chute control includes both up and down, and left and right.

I was thinking of a gauge cluster....Clock, tach, fuel level. But the tank has no provision for a fuel sending unit. (kidding)

Maybe LED Flood Lights? Just because access to the 12V is easy.

Maybe amber LED strobe on the side of the bucket so I don't get run over while I plow?

USB Charger, I like that one. I can punch a hole into the dash and put one there. So I can listen to music while I push snow. That's a good one.

DC. Measured it with a meter. Definitely DC. Only hot when the machine is running.

Did I heat AC/DC??? Good idea, a stereo system would be a great addition.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Call the manufacturer and find out the amp output of the alternator. Use this tool and run 10% below the final number

I changed over from AC to DC, swapped the headlight bulb to LED and added a 36 watt light bar.

A light bar is definitely on the list. I was wondering what the amp output was on the alternator. I was trying to find it.
