The ES2000 Rocker Switch will replace your old Single Lever Control. It comes with 4 ring terminals for the Blue, Yellow, Red and Green wire. You can cut the old spade terminals off those wires and crimp the ring terminals on to the wires and connect them to the new switch. It also comes with a new orange power lead and 20 amp fuse you can run to where the old control got its power.

The Auto Tab Control is a nice addition and can be added at any time, take a look here for more info including a link to the installation instructions

But the Auto Tab Control does not replace the Rocker Switch, you would still need to install one. It's kind of like still needing your gas pedal when you have cruise control in your car. There are times when you will want / need to control them manually.

Let me know what you think.
