AquaSignal orientation

Just got a LED tri color bulb. This is the type that has red, green, and white LEDs that need to align properly with the lens and the boat. As I had a rigging inspection being done I asked the rigger to install it while up there.

However, he says that the bulb aligned backwards, white forward.

So, what is wrong, the bulb or the socket in the fixture?

Below is a sketch of the bulb. One tit is higher than the other.

So here's my question, which is the bow? 1 or 2?

Re: AquaSignal orientation

Yes, jumpers are good. I can tell what is white, red green. I can't tell if it is oriented right.

Re: AquaSignal orientation

Been awhile, but I seem to recall that two small screws held the socket in place. Remove screws, rotate socket, re-install screws.
