installing lopolight tricolor/anchor light w/2 wires

I currently have only an anchor light at my masthead, not a tricolor, so I only have two wires to that spot. I know that some LED tricolor/anchor combinations can be wired using only these two wires, by utilising a switch to reverse the polarity to illuminate either the tricolor or the anchorlight function. Lopolight's tricolor/anchor combination (#200-207) installation instructions say it will only function if the polarity is correct, and it comes with three wires. Has anybody successfully installed one of the combination lopolights using the two-wire method?

Thanks,
Paul
