Customer Question
What type of bulb...

What type of bulb can be used for the DSI FLT light on a panel? I am replacing my existing panel with a new one and I will have to install a light for the DSI FLT. Is it a LED 12 v?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Panel DSI FLT indicator light

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your RV?

Wildwood X lite 2019 and it is a suburban Gas water heater

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am installing new tank monitors and want to put in a new panel. It will take running a light for the DSI FLT because the old DSI FLT light is incorporated in the old panel.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?

THat's it

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Good afternoon! Sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question here! It has been crazy busy these last few days. I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. Please give me a few minutes to type up an answer here for you. And don't be alarmed if I don't get right back to you when you respond. We work on more than one question at a time here when it is busy like it is now. I may be on a phone chat with another customer and those last less than 5 minutes. Your patience is appreciated! And several of us live out west where we are dealing with fires all around us! Thanks! Randall

That is part of the switch and not a separate part. Most any RV shop has these. Just tell them the make of your water heater and take a photo of that with you. Randall

There is actually a separate light for the DSI FLT circuit. There is a light in the switch to tell you that the water heater is on, but there is a light that comes on if the gas is not there. What kind of a light can I use for that circuit?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 1 year ago

If that is separate then it is and LED light.

They do sell those as a separate item.
