Illuminate Dash
Did the search, lots of good info, but not the answer I was looking for.

There is a 4" section at the top of my gold Illuminate lights that are out. No burning or anything. So I took a razor blade, and separated the top along the edge.

Now the...

When I did mine it didn't fix any areas that were blacked out already it just stopped the area that was shorting out from doing anymore damage.  At least that is the way I understood it?

There seems to be transformers? On the back of the panels.  Not sure how Javelina wired or powered the panel. The glow area I think is 110 volt?

Having worked on several Beech Baron aircraft that have these same type panels found this information. I don't know if these will be like the Foretravel panels or not. A phone call doesn't cost very much though.

Otherwise will send them to someone, and have them repaired.

Chris, I called James at Extreme and he was more than happy to talk with me (7mnths ago) about the fixes for the EL dash. He used to build them at Foretravel. Might give him a call

I found a thread on the Wanderlodge Owners Group forum on EL dash issues. Perhaps it may be of help:  Link

There was also a link to a supplier of the inverters that power the luminescent strips. I don't know if it is the same as used on...
