Old/New Nav Station Red light

 End of  December 2016 - Tied up in Marina Mazatlán, Mexico

The Led nav station touch light we purchased has a red night light and a white map light.
We had always thought it had a red map light also but could never figure out how to operate it. So maybe it is a white only map light? The old florescent overhead nav station light was not working and so we decided to get it going. All the other overhead slim florescent lights we converted to LED.

 This one we purchased two red LED tubes at Downwind Marine and wired it up.

Shown without shade cover. Now it works fine and as we only use it for overnighters we will probably not bother to convert it to red LED. Time will tell on that one. If we leave it on a lot, which I doubt, we will need to convert it.
