Hi Folks

I meant to get the measurements for the holes on both the ground level and radar arch courtesy lights this weekend and just plain forgot :-(

Does anyone know what they are? Done an led upgrade?

Thank you

If the fixtures are still decent, just switch over to LED bulbs. 1/10 the power needed over incandescents and very little heat generated. I replaced a bunch of halogens that I measured to be in the 200 degree range. LED's are in the 120 range.

My biggest issue is that I got water in one of the lights, it still works fine but on a cruise I popped the cover off not realizing that the surround and lens were separates. When I flicked the water out the lens went with it! I haven't been able to find the original lights to buy a lens so now I'm looking for alternatives.

As for the Lower Courtesy lights, 2 of them are cracked so I'm going to modernize them a little.

I think I recently trashed the one spare old lens I had sitting in my garage for years. If I find it I will let you know.

Hi Dave, for some reason the forum isn't letting me send a PM. Can you please send me one and I'll attempt to reply?

Folks

Have any of you changed the lower Courtesy lights? I have a broken one and can't find a match for it. The scew holes are 3inch apart and I'm struggling to find a match or something which is flush mountable and slightly larger so that I can cover up the existing screws.

Thoughts?

I had looked them up and they are still available and inexpensive they also offer the same light in LED.
I don't remember where I found it but if you unscrew the light the brand and model number is on the back Google it and it will come up. That is how I found it I just never followed through.

So I think you jinxed me! Today I went to drive my boat and somehow stepped on and broke the courtesy light at the helm. So I guess I will be ordering new lights as well soon.
