Re: Dome Light LED - Switch Update / Your experience

Most of the Marine beam replacements are not polarity sensitive. They also make some that give off, red, white with a single pole switch & no additional wiring.

Re: Dome Light LED - Switch Update / Your experience

I ended up installing the red/warm white kit with the new larger switches. I did have to bore out the hole for the switch with my rotary tool. I'm quite happy with the amount and color of light. Now to see if they stand the test of time.

Re: Dome Light LED - Switch Update / Your experience

A good attempt, I am going to replace all my light bulbs with leds, If I encounter any problems during the process, hope to get your guidance.
