Hi Eric,from time to
time. Here is some hopefully helpful advice I've gathered overthe years.
Look in the Yellow Pages under LIGHT BULBS and TUBES. Here in FortThey are
service oriented and very helpful.halogen at
almost no cost increase. XENON runs cooler, has no U.V. rays,won't burst
when failing, lasts 5 TIMES as long as halogen and can handlevoltage surges
and spikes much better than halogen. They DON'T recommend using a28 volt
XENON to replace a 24 volt HALOGEN as light output will decrease.The 24
volt XENON will handle the 28 volt surges caused by the batterychargers.
which creates a "hot-spot" which causes premature failure. If youdo touch
the bulb while installing, take a CLEAN cotton cloth withdenatured alcohol
and wipe the bulb, allowing it to evaporate before you turn iton. I've
tested halogen and regular incandescent bulbs and this "no touch"rule
really works on almost every bulb on the boat.
