Bennington with power Bimini top with lights in the Bimini rails. They don’t work and I have checked all the connections throughout, so the only thing left are the lights themselves. Can you replace them? I also gave up on figuring out the speedometer on the dam thing, it will work sometimes.
Thank you

CLDave is right. You have to have the Nav lights on for the bimini frame lights to work on the electric bimini. Sort of like the light on the helm access door.

Threw me off the first time I tried checking them out.

That said, like CLD, I have only used them once between very little nighttime boating, and when doing it, not having the bimini deployed so as to see the stars. However, we had to boat home late at night from a bonfire at a friends cottage once and it started to rain. I used them that one time as we huddled under the bimini to stay out of the rain.
