Grab Handle Lights


Recommended Posts

I have just picked up my lunar clubman si but can't find the switch for the grab handle lights. I have a switch on the wall below the microwave, one side of which operates the lights below the microwave, the other side doesn't seem to operate anything. Could this be the grab handle light and it just isn't connected?

If you are talking about the external handles, they work with the side lights - or at least they do on my Peg.

That is where it is in my Lexon which I believe is a similar layout to the Clubman SI

I think on my SE it is labelled up as External Light on the switch panel adjacent to the sink. Grab handles and locker light on the same switch.

On our '13 ES, under the microwave there's a full-size switch operating the interior LED strip under there - and a double switch operating the grab-handle lights from the left and off-side awning light from the right.

Hqve you checked things in the dark, because you wont see any sign of a light behind the grabhandle in daylight.

It has to be reasonably dark to see ours.

On my 2015 SI there are 4 switches above and to the left of the sink set at 45 degrees. Two operate the inner and below cupboard lights. The other pair operate the grab handles and the off-side (water changing) light.

 

 

Hope this helps.

If you put you hand into the recess behind the handle, the light shows up well on your hand even in strong sunlight

On my Delta RS and my mates Ultima 540 (Lexon 540) the switch is located to the left of the sink along with the off side service light.

The Chrome (plastic) outer cover prizes off. It will have tangs which could easily break off, One of mine broke without me even doing anything. might have been like that since new. It was change under guarantee.

Thanks John

Just anticipating a possible issue on handover in 3 weeks time.

Getting rid of the Dometic loo at last ( even though we've only had one outing since the pump was changed), not to mention getting the in-line boiler mounted Alde pump.

Can't wait to spend a night in the van on a coolish night without having to set the timer and thermostat on the convector heater.

On our 2016 si,the switch below,left of microwave is in two halves,one half is light,other half is for four grab handle lights. never use them,useless gimmick IMO!

Have they given you a price for a replacement, and is it a supply price or supply and fit?

I replaced one of my grab handle lights myself, easy enough to do but remember to use waterproof led's as the replacements, I also have led's missing on my offside service light so that will be my next repair, I am doing these repairs myself as i lost faith and confidence in my dealer very shortly after i purchased my brand new Delta RS.

Rang Lunar yesterday due too the dealer telling me its supply problem, got a good response from the girl that answered said she will look into the matter, told her didn't look good on site when numerous lunars on site with lights out especially on their flag ship clubman range. l explained the remarks l was getting from fellow caravaners seemed to hit the nerve endings, only time will tell if she took it on board. Would be interested where first timer sourced his led's from

To be honest I don't think that I would have any desire to have illuminated grab handles. I think the idea naff. OK at Christmas perhaps :)

Only turn ours on when one of us goes out in the dark to the toilet block.

Turned off again as soon as we get back.

I use a "winter cover" on the microwave vent to stop draughts but it has to be put on/off every time we use the microwave - and then I find the grab handle lights very useful, along with the offside service light.

 

The grab handle lights can also be useful on unlit sites to find it on the way back from the pub!

We have a 2012 Clubman ES. If, through bad planning, I need to fill toilet flush or whatever in the dark I have a circular LED lamp that is magnetic and I stick it on the side of the car for illumination. We have a 'Winter' cover on the vent all year but if cold and breezy over Christmas I cover the top hole with duct tape. The most the microwave is used for is instant porridge or scrambled eggs
