LED sidelights wiring?

13 posts in this topic

Hey guys, my new benny came in and was supposed to have LED sidelights put on at the factory so that they would be integrated with the cup holder leds and all work with the knob on the dash. My dealer isnt 100 percent sure if the kit is plug and play and is saying he will make it work.

Has anyone added a factory set of sidelights and is there wiring provisions in place for a factory quality install?

Thanks

Welcome aboard! Your dealer should contact Bennington directly. They can verify and or work through the details. I don't think there's wiring in place for plug n play. I would think all "add ons" are run as separate items.

The kit is ordered supposedly. Dealer said they will make it work either way. Doesn't matter if its plug and play or not i guess as long as the 10 year warrant applies.

thanks

The dealer got it done. He said it was his first add on and was "plug and play"

I added aftermarket ones for mine.  Took about 2 hours and it was plug and play.

Looks great... can you provide details on what you purchased and the install.  I just picked up my Benny and have the interior RGB lights and am considering adding exterior also.

I found them at pontoonstuff.com.  Search for "Pontoon Boat Under Deck Lights"

I ordered the longer ones (27.7') so they wrapped around most of the front as well.  They have an option to pay through Amazon which is what I did but you can order direct as well. I received package in 3 days.

They recommend installing them facing down but I couldn't find a practical way to do it.  I went to a dealer and saw that they mounted the factory ones on the inside of the rub rail facing in so that's what I did.  Here is a picture.  Also I started at the back on both sides and went the full length which got me almost to the center of the bow.  They provided heat shrink and butt connectors and I spiced them together and ran one pair of wires to the helm.  I choose to use a spare ACC circuit instead of tying them into the table LED's.
