    At 35 watts that works out to just under 3 amps each at 12 volts. Running both at once puts you at 6 amps plus any line loss. The switch would most likely handle this as long as the contacts are kept clean; these switches are not well sealed. As soon as you start to get dirt or corrosion going on the resistance of the switch will go up and so will your amperage/draw. A relay would be a safer bet as you would lower the load on the switch and most automotive type relays are better sealed from the elements.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
