Berkshire Lighted Entry Handle Mod

There have been discussions about the entry handles not being lighted after about 2012 on the Berkshires. Here's what I did on our 2014.

Parts required: $11.00 LED light assembly for Illumagrip Handles.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1



Tools required: black tape, soldering iron, square head screw driver.

Remove handle, wires are in the wall.



Connect wires and stuff LED up in bottom of handle.
Re-attach handle.

Light Off



Light on via Isle Light Switch.



Done!!!

Thank you! Looks like the same exact handle used on the Legacy. I will definitely do this mod once my Legacy comes in!

An 11$ part they make ten a week and they have the wire already there. Makes you wonder why? Or more like why not?

Thanks very much. Very timely for me as I hope for warmer weather to start the mods on my new Berk.

Glad so many are finding this thread useful.

I don't recall how I happened across the LED light, but I thought it was going to be an easy install and ordered it immediately.

Enjoy!

I guess FR has been reading the forum.
But you probably paid $9 more for your 2015 vs 2014
