Default toggle switch

On what fuse are the green lights on the toggle switches and when do they turn on (Master switch?)? Turned on my Skyview for the first time and trying to find how the lights turn on.

Hi Leon,
This is a known issue. Several of us have had the same experience. Van's recently posted a revised 42M-05 Rev. 3, to correct the problem. http://www.vansaircraft.com/pdf/revi.../RV-12_42M.pdf

You probably have a wire from the dimmer pot in pin 8 instead of pin 6 of the 25 pin D-sub.

Thanks Tony I'll take a look. Also how does the SV battery get charged, must SV be on to charge the battery?

Yes, SV manages the back up battery and it has to be on.
