Anyone have extra "puck" lights?

I have decided, in part thanks to the postings on IRV2, to update my nine Halogen pucks to LED's. I would like to add five more lights in the coach and wanting to keep them all looking the same need five of the current Halogen bulb puck light fixtures.

Does anyone out there that has upgraded their lights have any of the old silver/ chrome colored 3 1/8" diameter they would part with.

I know we are not suppose to "Sell" or advertise on this forum so I would be willing to EXCHANGE federal reserve notes, drinks, gallons of Diesel fuel, etc?

In case I don't find anyone with used halogen fixtures does anyone know a source for the existing, or similar, fixture?

Send me an email @ chborl@juno.com

Thanks
Harold

I assume you mean these?

Halogen Light, Brass - Item - Camping World

Easy to order, if those are what you are looking to have.

Camping World says their # 34665 is about 6" in diameter. The puck lights in the Alpine (at least mine) are about 3 1/8" diameter...

Harold,

I can't believe that light is 6" in diameter. I just did a search on the AM4014 part number and found a website (British) that shows the dimension as 3 1/8 inches. (Not metric, inches.) I would be shocked if that isn't our light. If that one isn't, I know I have seen them in the CW store before. Ask CW to go measure one on the shelf.

I TWICE questioned the Camping World lady about the 6" diameter but she said "that's what the description says".. I have since found them at Tweety's online RV store for $ 11.86 which is a few dollars less than C-W.

Thanks everyone.

Harold

Every big RV parts store I have gone into, Camping World, Uhlmanns RV in Chehalis, BOB Surplus RV Parts in Tampa, FL, and countless others have these lights. Both the (what I call the little ones in the cabinets w/o the frosted glass lenses) and the ones with the frosted lenses. It should not be a major job to find them. Assuming you are going to take out the halogen bulbs and replace with LED's there should not be an overloading issue of the wiring. But you might check how many current amps on the circuit with the most lights currently and make sure you won't overload it. That is just to be safe. 12V systems can and do cause electrical fires, so be forwarned.

I need to replace one of the smalller non frosted lights because it dims and lights bright for no reason. When I took it out, WRV left no extra wiring to pull the light out so it could be changed. My guess is I will have to empty the cabinet and see if the floor boards can be taken up, to gain access to the wiring. Anyone know???

Monty,

The floors of the cabinets can be taken up for easier access to the wiring. I have friends who have done so. Not sure how since I have not done it myself, but it can be done.

Yup, just a couple of putty knives. One will need to be stiff. Lift at the front center and work outward. The brads can usually be re-used. Of course it is also a good excuse to buy another little pneumatic brad/stapler.

Wow, you mean that little semco brad nailer/stapler I purchased 4 years ago I can finally use. That is great, and I mean great, it's a fun little tool to use.

Now why would WRV not install those lights with enough wire so you could remove the thing from the hole it's installed in, and change it out. I can tell you why, PPP. Well the other reason might be, they were afraid of the wiring getting hot and catching fire, but if that was the case, why have I found dozens of lose wires, and or crimp connectors the wrong size. PPP does it for me.
