    I have a B version hlg185 and it draws 222w when the dimmer wires are disconnected. but when I attach my 10k potentiometer to the white/blue dimmer wires, it only gives me 25 watts at max power. Can anyone help me correct this problem so I can get to vegging? thanks

    Do you have them hooked up to the proper contacts?

    yup you need a 100k dimmer. 25W sounds about right for 10K resistance

    HAHA! I misread his post. It's hooked up right, just the wrong pot.
