    On our new 2019 RSB, the RGB LED lights are having an issue where the red does not work at all. Any combination of colors that needs red is not showing correctly. The button on the dash that turns the RGB lights on shows red as the colors are cycled, but the actual color emanating from the speakers, cup holders, side lights, and underwater lights are not red. If red is selected, they show as white. Blue and green and yellow, etc seem to work but not any color that needs red. My dealer has ordered a new controller already and will swap it out as soon as it arrives. Possibly related - when either the side lighting or underwater lights (but not mood lights) are turned on, I get a buzz in my stereo speakers. Anyone else have these issues?

    Your best bet is Talk to your dealer as their is a wiring problem. Probably not major, but you’re under warranty.

    I am having the same exact issue. They worked fine the first 2 months but are not now. Just got boat in April. They are performing just like yours.

    Never had that issue with red. It cycles through all colors fine. Also, NEVER had any cross over buzzing sound in speaker for any reason, let alone RGB lights. Getting close to the end of our 3rd summer with it. Somethings off, so I’d certainly be talking to the dealer about it.

    None of those issues and this is our 3rd summer with this boat.

    I'll report back after the dealer fixes it. Let me know what you find out as well please. Luckily, I'm 5 minutes away from the Bennington dealer by car and 30 minutes by boat.

    I have the RGB cup holder lighting, no issues with it. The dealer will get it working correctly.

    2019 Q25 with the same issue. Red does not work. All others do. Waiting until Oct when boating season in WI is over to have the dealer repair it. Hi
