I'm not an electrical nut so I need some help. When I turn down the Main Panel lighting all the way the LEDs are still producing some light. Not a lot but some. How can I get these to go down to no light being produced when I rotate the Main Panel light dimming rotory fully CCW other than turning off the power to the system Smile? This is on a JetMax setup.

Thx,
John

It's the same with my setup (also JetMax) but it doesn't matter a lot. While you are flying during the day, the sub light keeps it unseen and during night, it's always good to have some light in my opinion. But I wonder if it can be done...

That is the way it is. Based on the circuit it can't dim down to zero.

I have added a on/off switch to the power in side of the dimmer and mounted the switch in a convenient spot on my MIP. So I can turn the lights off if needed.
Works for me.
