    dash light

    where do you guys buy your lights for toggle switches etc,to let you know the power is turned on,the ones i found do not have a negative terminal,they need grounded by the casing on light assembly,and everything on the dash area is plastic?

    Welcome EVO.

    Don't let Abbott take you to the Darkside(very colorfull side).

    I am thinking of adding white LED on the bottom of the battery box to illuminate the pump tunnel for inspection and cleaning. John, any suggestions?

    the best thing that i can think of for that area would be one of those "push" lights that Lowes or Home Depot sells that has a sticky back to it. It's battery operated (internally). These are about 4 or 5 inches in diameter (in the shape of a circle).

    I would stick this upside down on the inside of the hull where it slants (above the pump tunnel). This way, all you have to do is just pull the Battery box out and hit the light with your fist and it comes on.

    I suggest this because there isn't that many times where you would actually have to use this, so i wouldn't go through the trouble of "hard-wiring" a light to a toggle switch.

    When I clean the ski I remove the fire ext tube and suck the left over water out w/wet vac(reducer and 36" small dia tube). I'd like to see what's doing down there.
