The Traveller with the "Deluxe" gauges seems to share the wiring with the early S.While looking for a feed for the electronic gauges, speedo etc., I used the feed from the voltage stabilizer which I found out piggy back feeds to both the heater fan and wipers. I am not sure how this was wrapped in the harness originally or what years it was like this. As there were only two fuses, alot of shared and piggyback wiring existed.The new fancy electronic gauges did not like it when the wipers were turned on. It has been suggested to use a relay to feed the gauges from the brown wire fuse section

I would have run a separate feed wire for the gauges , directly off the fuse block. They don't require hardly any amperage so it won't overload that fuse but most electronic gauges are voltage sensitive. Taking the power off the wiper - when the wiper motor starts up the inrush current could drop the voltage momentarily, and it would do it every time the wipers changed direction too.
