Hi guys! I have an issue on my whitewater...
The inserts to the left that spell r-i-v-e-r, the last (r) is not working correctly. The led looked like it was out, so i swapped it w another and screwd it in and presto it works... but then i took my hand off of the led and it stops lighting. I have tried multiple bulbs and swapped out the twist outled that holds the led, but it still may only light for a few seconds then shut off again...?

Ive also adjusted the side prongs and sand the contact points on the socket and entry hole on the board.
Best i can gather is it is a problem on the board since swapping the outlet and leds elsewhere they work.

Problem 2-
The #6 raft led is a lot dimmer than all the others. And yes i have swapped bulbs on that one too.

Any guidence would be great?

If this not work check if the trace on the light board is ok
