I was going to check it again today on the PC to make sure but things went sideways real fast and I didn't have time to check until just now. Looks like it's still shows 10ft. Did they send you something else or did it actually say two 5ft sections?It read 10ft in the item description but Amazon ended up sending the same brand cable albiet the wrong size, and two in the package. I requested a return and bought the same cable, through the same link, and got the correct length this time

The boards are different in the newer iterations of the Ghost Trap. I had to figure this out on my own at the time with plenty of trial and error.Thank you for this! I will give this a try and report how it goes
Sorry, no decent photos I can upload and I didn't want to pop open my ghost trap again for new photos!
You will need to relocate the board. I needed to at least. Mine is located in the lower middle section of the trap, inside between the wheels.
I de soldered the light from the board and soldered wires from the LED leads, to the positions they were in on the board itself.
For the power switch....(reference xan_theGBfan's photo https://imgur.com/a/0kYxqci) I believe I soldered a wire from the ON lead, to (1) of the board switch, and the OFF lead to the (3) of the board switch.
You may have to extend the speaker wires or replace them all together because I don't think they will reach once you relocate the board.
Like I said, this was a trial and error process for me and was also very tedious at times. Please ask me any questions so I can try and be more specific if need be. I wish I would have made a thorough post about this at the time with photo

Really need to get around to making an instructional video…

I was getting a little frustrated with the trying to solder in that open pin hole? I ended up sticking with the stock switch, giving the trap a nice paint app, and calling it a day. I may return to it in the future, we'll see. I do have an extra trap laying around for possible future projectsxan_theGBFan wrote: ↑August 15th, 2021, 2:20 pmThanks very much bud!

Fantastic job, bud! I'm finally returning to modding my trap. Just gotta get this switch on and it'll be complete!

I would love details and pictures of that.
Is it easier than the Sean Charlesworth foster connector wiring?
You just need to cut the wire that joins the two and wire them to the two BNC Female RF Coaxial Adapters that you mount to the trap and the pedal.
Here's a pic of the inside of the pedal. It was too tight to get the nut on the mount to secure it, so I just used hot glue.

Edit: Ramsastro gave me the info I needed in a comment on his video. In the pictures on Amazon, it's hard to see that there is a metal "ring" around the core of the cable. That is what you solder to.
I just ordered the parts I need and will hopefully post my results in a week or two.
