Captain Reading Lights

Came across these LED Captain style reading lights and thought I would try them out. One push of the button turns on the soft blue light and the second push turns on the reading light.

Not saying anything wrong with the stock lights, but felt these would go better with my interior decor and I like the idea of soft blue light. After installing I find they take up less space as well.

Nice. Did you replace your captains lights, or use a wire drop?

Looks great. I take that is US $.
There are some great RV lights available which is perfect for anyone that did not get them installed at the factory.
I installed a blue LED in each of mine and it is worth the little extra if you are purchasing.

Why blue?
I know red helps with night vision, but what does blue do for you?

Yes, I replaced the factory captain lights.

Blue does nothing for me, the lights just come with the blue light.

Great...now I can blame my evening eating on the lights.

I donno. There is a study result to satisfy every appetite.
I recall from my design editor days that blue food was unappetizing, so I Googled and found this site near the top:
https://www.colormatters.com/color-a...petite-matters


Of all the colors in the spectrum, blue is an appetite suppressant. Weight loss plans suggest putting your food on a blue plate. Or even better than that, put a blue light in your refrigerator and watch your munchies disappear. Or here's another tip: Dye your food blue! A little black will make it a double whammy.
