    • As shown in the first photo, it is very important to look at the color of the wires for the lights in this kit.

    • Lights with red and black wires can be connected to any adapter their plugs will fit into.

    • Lights with blue and white wires can ONLY be connected to either a BRANCH09X or BRANCH09XS adapter board. Connecting a light with blue and white wires to any other adapter board (including other adapters where the plugs fit) will destroy the light.

    • The second photo is a visual reference for the controllers and adapter boards included with your kit. You may want to print a copy to reference as you walk through the instructions. You can download a PDF copy of this illustration here.

    • Here are some other very important tips to keep in mind as you connect the parts in this kit:

    • Plugs connect to adapter boards and controllers only one way. Do not force plugs.

    • Do not remove plugs with tabs by pulling on the wire. Always use your fingernails or tweezers to remove plugs by pulling on the tabs of the plug, not the wires.

    • Many boards have connectors that face vertically (upward). Use extra care when connecting or disconnecting plugs to these connectors. Pulling or pushing sideways on any vertically-facing plug can cause the plug to come detached from its circuit board.

    • Note that this guide applies only to "Version 2" Disney Castle lighting kits, which include kits sold beginning with the November 2019 batch of orders.

    • If your kit is a "Version 2" kit, it will include a TRUNK08 master controller like the one shown in the photo for this step, and you can continue in this guide.

    • The TRUNK08 controller included with your kit may have slightly different plugs or parts than the ones shown in the photo. That is ok.

    • If your kit does not have a controller that looks like this, you have a "Version 1" kit and these instructions will not apply to you.

    • If you have a "Version 1" kit, you can download installation instructions here.

    • If you have a "Version 1" kit, we are looking into the possibility of creating an upgrade kit. We currently do not have a date set for release of this kit.

  4. When connecting plugs, it is important to be able to tell the top of the plug from the bottom.  The first photo in this step shows the top of two different types of plugs, and the second photo shows the bottoms. Plugs will fit into connectors only one way.  Do not force! When removing plugs, to not pull from the wire.  As shown in the third photo in this step, use your fingers to pinch the tabs on larger plugs and pull on the tabs to remove.

    • In the end, you want to make sure that all spotlight wires are neat and organized, and that no excess wire hangs below the castle base to scrape on the surface you will display your castle on.

    • As shown in the third photo, when you are finished cleaning up the spotlight wires, you should have a neat arrangement with all excess wire tucked into the castle base. The only wire left hanging should be the black 24"/60.9cm wire connected to the "IN" plug on the BRANCH09XS adapter board.

  36. As shown in the photos for this step, carefully take the 3-wire cable that is connected to the BRANCH09XS adapter board and feed it through the hole in the bottom of the castle floor that you made earlier. As shown in the second photo, you can remove pieces of the castle base to help hold the wire in place.  Just make sure you run the wire between, and not on top of, any studs. The blue arrows in the third photo show the hole through which you will feed the 3-wire cable.  Pass it all the way through so there is no slack left underneath the castle base.
