Default Convenience Panel Lights

Issue - On our 2018 26RB FF the lighted control switches (for water pump, dome lights, etc.) are a very bright when the switch is set to the "On" position. So bright, in fact, that it is hard to read the switch marking on the panel without block some of the light. At bedtime I need to cover the lights or the cabin is too bright.
Anyone else have this issue, and what did you do?

Hmmm. Sunglasses, perhaps?

Seriously, though, maybe cover part of each switch with a small rectangle of duct tape, leaving just the outline of the switch illuminated. That will cut down on the glare without completely obscuring the switch.

Covered ours mostly with a strip of electrical tape. You can still tell when the switch is lighted.

I had this problem with a TV at one time. The blue light was so intense that you needed sunglasses to sleep. Covered it with a translucent tape which muted it just enough.

Thanks, all. I'll have to try the tape thing.

Oh my yes, you sure don't need a flashlight to get around at night. For years we've used exterior color matching reflective window tint on our trailer windows to help knock down Summer heat buildup. Lately I've been using small pieces of it to cover all the little - but piercingly bright - indicator lights, especially that danged blue fridge indicator in our 210UDS.

I was hoping to find a translucent dark plastic cover that would fit over it. Seems like Cruiser should of had clue and not made such a poor choice.

I hear you about that blue fridge light. I just leave the bathroom door open to cover it while sleeping. Silverado
