When they inspect your lights on a scale you do not have to switch on your chicken lights. Just the markers head tail brake and turn. If your getting a level one they can request you to turn them on to verify function because if the lamp is mounted it must be able to work. But if you have em off rolling thru they won’t see the one you have burnt out.“Go across the scale”
I’m not sure what you mean by that
I’d have to think about how to make a new, fused, switched circuit for chicken lights. I run a grote 44710 flasher, and most of my chicken lights are LED or being switched for LEDs.
But you’re right, running over 100 lights on one circuit whether LED or incandescent is a lot for one circuit
Also a dim light is not a ticketable offense it just has to work, there is no law that says all 9 leds in the light must work, just the light must function.
