[DML] Re: Left directional woes



Thanks everyone for weighing in on this.  I did switch the left 
circuit board to the right and the problem occured on the right so 
it does seem to be the board that's the problem.  Oddly enough, when 
I reinstalled the board on the left, the directional worked again.  
Great, but it's only a matter of time before it goes again. Fuse is 
fine - I swapped in a new one just to be sure.  

When it does, I'll try sanding it down a bit.  I'm not near the 
ocean and both the bulb and board are pretty new.   I think a board 
from our friends at Grady is ultimately the way I'll end up going.  
Again, thanks to all.
