Title: happy hunter refurb.......lighting!
Post by: Klunk on October 17, 2018, 05:20:16 PM
ok, while doing the happy hunter refurb, I've come across lots of electrical wiring, involving several circuits on individual batteries!
2 x smoker units, 6v i think
1 x 2 internal cabin pea light's 6v
2 x deck lights 6v grain of wheat
1 x superstructure have lights 6v grain of rice
1 x external superstructure lights 6v
1 x rear deck lights 6v
1 x gangway lights 6v
what i want is to turn these on via spectrum dx6i. is there a switcher or something i could use? i dont want to go down individual switches internally unless i have to


ps runs off 2 x 6v 10amp batteries
bowthruster running off 6v 4.5 amp battery
power will be via action p112 probably

I'm using a Graupner SXM switch for these types of applications. It gives you 4 switches on 1 proportional channel.

Compact and affordable in my opinion

You can run 2 circuits from 1 channel on your radio with this switcher.
