Ed thatís great idea using the low lumen on one instead of red.  Then I can use the switching red/white led on the other socket. And get the best of all options.

I installed LED string lights along both sides of the salon, and another one above the galley.  They provide a lot of light for  general illumination.  I installed some toggle switches so each string can be individually controlled.  I find they throw a lot more light than using LED replacement bulbs in the original equipment light fixtures. I did this was a few years ago so perhaps the bulbs now may be better.
