Default Help with Rigid Dually D2's.

Got my d2 driving lights hooked up. They are the kind that is supposed to be dimable but the 3 way rocker switch only turns them on one setting. Not sure if its bright or dim. Does anyone else have experience with these? Im wondering if the switch is defective. I've triple checked the connections and they are hooked up correctly to my knowledge. Any help is appreciated.

The 3way rocker switch won't dim them it's intended for 2 different power sources i.e. Constant on, off or auto on when truck is in reverse

Yeah i read that on the rigid web site, but i didn't understand the "auto" in reverse function. Could you explain more? Are you saying they are not dimmable? I'm not using them as backup lights.

So the switch in the top position is constant on that is basically coming right from your battery the middle position is the off position always off
The lower position should be the on when in reverse you actually tap into a reverse light and that will trigger the lights to come on when the truck is in reverse only once it's out of reverse the lights go off

Ok, I understand now. I was under the impression you could select between low and high on the fly. Like headlights operate.
