Just gotta' vent on Dometic

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 button control for my 2 units. I must be blinder than s***, cause I can't see the LCDs w/o a flashlight. Well, upon opening the thing up, here's 2 little bulbs like car dashboard lights, look like T4 or T5 neo. So I wait on hold to Dometic for a half hour to see which they are. "oh, we don't sell them, & have no way of knowing anything about that. You have to buy a new control" for several hundred$. The damn bulbs are less than $2 on many sites, and they just turn & come out. Thanks for nothing Dometic, I hope you sell another control & then shoot yourself.

If the lights unplug just replace them with a 12v bulg with the same plug configuration. Or you can unsolder them and resolver new bulbs in.

Argo take a look at Digi-key maybe you can order bulbs.

Caution - they have a few SKU’s on their website :)

Local Auto Parts Store probably has them on the shelf.  For the price, I would just get both and see what fits and if you buy locally, they will probably just take the un-used ones back, you can ask when you purchase them.

Oh, there's plenty on line & I'll check my local store. But the question is, are they T4 or T5 ? The biggest part of the base is 3/8", looks like 10mm so T4.

Unit works fine, except my old eyes can't read the LCD's with the crummy little bulbs in it. They easily twist out from the back, but I want to buy same size LED's for the spots. Tks for the offer...

I thought your lights were burnt out. That reason i was offering. It is free except shipping.

No, just too dim. If you pop it off the back part, you can see 2 small black circles on the board. These are the lights, twist them with a finger & they pop right out. Tks again, I may take you up on it anyway,.How much will cover your trouble to zip 21220?

(Dometic take note: The village idiot could do this, and you want me to buy a whole NEW one?
