    I have several rocker switches to wire up was wondering was there any way i can get the larger LED on permently and just have the smaller light on as an indication. (its currently the other way around) or even have both leds on permanently.

    Yes i know how to wire a switch but its going to be if i can rip it open and reconfigure it ect

    this is the style rocker switch

    2 compressor switches will be on 24/7 and a momentary switch will be rarely used. Plus there will be a 2 way switch to check on each battery.

    That’s exactly right. I know the switch front comes off.

    I guess I should of stated I want to mod the switch then.

    Any guides on that.

    Looks like I can open it up and have play. I have a spare. I’ll just parrel up both leds and make sure I don’t have the switch activate with the the dash lights. Which will just be wired up to acc so when car is on lights are on.

    Does remove some functionality but still better than old toggle switches.

    Kind of pointless having the top led if it’s only on when you are pushing the momentary switch and hence covering the led anyway
