Re: Lighting and LEDs

Hi everyone.
We have the courtesy lights in the saloon - but both the low-level LED lights under the seats/cabinets and the bright ceiling LED lights are on the same switch. Which seems weird as one set is more mood lighting, and the other so bright you can turn the saloon into an operating theatre. Is this the same on all Helias, and has anyone separated the two onto different switches? Thanks.

Re: Lighting and LEDs

We have the same single switch set up on our boat as well. Always thought it was a bit odd, but hasn't bothered us enough to try and re-wire everything, though I don't see why you couldn't...

Were you able to find a replacement or did you put in a different fixture?

We need to replace on on our boat now.

Thank you.
