I'm going with the Contura V (please see pics below) sealed rocker switch with the laser etching "bed lights". Like the clean look of it. It's the double lighted kind so from what I can tell and please correct me if I'm wrong:
The upper led light (bed light symbol) will turn on only when keys in ignition and all other cab lights on (assuming I tap into a preexisting acc. wire in the cab right?) and the bottom "indicator light will turn "on" only when I have the switch flipped and am using the bed lights.
So that's an upper led light independently wired (power & grounded) and a lower "indicator" led light which is also independently wired (power and ground) only lit when in use.
My question is this: If I want to be able to run the lights in the bed, say for tailgating, with the truck off, then the lower portion (which will supply the led light strip) will be wired (with an inline fuse) from the battery so that it gets power when ever I call for it (ie. switch is flipped) however the general light (upper) will only be lit with the accessories on via an independent powered source (ie. tapping into an accessory wire somewhere). Do I have this correct? I mainly just want to confirm I can still run the lights in the back with the damn truck off once wired up. lol. (This all assumes I understand the contura V's 5-pin description)
