I bought a bunch from an online bulb supplier. They are 20 watts, which is the same as the 53 pots in my coach and also my garden lights at my house. I bought 60 of them and with shipping came to under $2 each. They were identical brand to what my coach had in it.

I bought 25 pcs for $1.00 each from:

1000bulbs

Both the 10 and 20 watt are $1.00. If you order 100 pcs they go for $.70 each.

I had stocked up on the bulbs myself, but the unique thing is that wherein they were blowing out right and left when I got the coach, now for several months I have not lost any. I suspect it has something to do with the fact that many of the installers did not take the extra precaution of not putting their fingers on them and leaving oil prints which cause earlier demise.

Now that I have said that I will probably be plauged with burned out bulbs.

Chuck, That was my conclussion also as the failure rate was too early on about 10 or so. Since then all seem to be okay. I guess having a bunch in stock assures they won't burn out.

In my case and maybe in the case of some others, I felt the issue with my burned out bulbs was the fact that the coach sat on the dealer's lot for several months...
Not sure about North Trail, but I KNOW Howard leaves the lights on all night for the benefit of the after hours lot lurkers...

I bought a bunch while in Nappanee and after the intial salvo, I've been ok as well...
I thumped one the other day and it came back on...

We have left ours off for three months on the boat only to return with 5 or 6 blown out. I think its just the nature of the beast-over eight years we have used over 100 bulbs on the boat(probably has 50 lights). So far none in the coach.

I'm a year late on this discussion, but one of my halogen lights just went out over the dining room table. I couldn't find the bulb listed in the manual. How do I know if I have a 10 or 20 watt bulb? I couldn't find anything on the bulb itself, even with a magnifying glass.

Jerry, I'm pretty sure they are 10 watt. I was incorrect when I stated that I believed mine to be 20.

K-Star (John), The halogen bulb are very sensitive and must not be touched by human hands, if so they are toast in a short time. I bought off the internet and all is, and was great. Either you or the supplier may have touched the glass portion.

They are in fact 10 watt bulbs. Since I wrote about them last year, I have found that I have not had to replace but one. Several have burned out it appears, but by lightly tapping on the glass enclosure with a knuckle or two, 9 out of 10 will come back to life. I learned that from the Newmar techs and most times it works.
