Panel Indicator Lights

I know that this subject has been addressed before on this forum however, we are new to this experience and wanted to see if there where any recent developments. Looking for a solution for better panel indicator lights.

Welcome. We also just acquired a new-to-us Allure 470 so we are still learning the systems on this wonderful coach.

I am curious which indicator panel you mean. Are you referring to the lights/gauges on the dash?

Kind of wondering here as well. We have so many indicator lights it is difficult to know which are being referred to.

Sorry,yes the indicator lights on the dash. Some of the lights are the "wait light", "entry step out"

OK, now that we know which panel lights you mean, how do you want to improve them? Are you concerned about their brightness, or lack of?

Mine seem to be fine. I can certainly see them well enough and with the info provided by the VMSpc in the dash, there is a plethora of info available about engine, transmission, tire pressure, etc.

Mine have never been all that good either. But then I don't really use them. As far as the step coming in when I close the door I always listen for it to close. I mostly monitor the motorhome using the Silverleaf. Things like oil pressure, engine and trans temp, I look at the Silverleaf.

Just be glad you have a steps out light.. Mine did not (note past tense) I had to design and add one.

IF the lights are "Stand alone" you can replace them with a brighter indicator.. If they are part of a larger assembly, you can not, at least not easily. If the lamps are replacable you can get brighter lamps at an auto parts store but be careful.. that sometimes backfires.

Short story:
Kids; MOM, you got a new TV
Mom: No, same old TV, New dust cloth.

Panel Indicator Lights

To answer the questions. Yes, overall I want to improve them and make them brighter. When you start the Coach, all the lights come on, so I want to make sure that they are in fact all on. The other concern I have is your driving and all of a sudden, a light comes on I want to be aware of that. If the only answer is changing the bulb, than I would like to know which one to change it with and where to get them. I guess I was thinking that there would be a way to replace the panel with a better solution.

I changed my mini bulbs to mini LED's that are 3 times brighter. See this link where I explained where to get them and what I did to rectify the dim lights. It's quite easy. Hardest part is getting to the annunciator panel to replace the bulbs. Now they work as they should.
