Thumbs up Entry handle

Very nice effect! Did you notice any fatigue marks or stress cracks at the mounting screw locations? The handle on our Synergy has a couple of stress cracks and a place or two that looks like the screws (or something) has created a pale mark on the black plastic base; kind of like when you bend plastic and it creates a pale discolored mark where the bend was created?

Again, a very nice effect

No damage. The black plastic was a little faded by the sun

Sikoriko, very nice effect on the Entry Handle. I have been thinking about the same addition. Would you provide some details of exactly how you made this change and how complicated it was running the wiring?

Thanks, Brakeman48

I had a 12 LED spare bulb. so I purchased a wire harness for the bulb, I think a 164 wedge type. drilled a 3/16 hole where the top handle is located. ran the wires through and on a separate switch tied that into the hot side of my porch light. I used a two gang switch one for the handle and the other for my 12V battery meter. The hardest part was putting the bulb in the correct way. Also sealed up the handle with a silicone base to keep water out. The porch light is already a 10 amp circuit, no need for another fuse, unless you want to install a separate fuse, that is ok
