Question Security Light Bulb?

Looking for the bulb type or size for the white security lights (Round) on either side of the coach? (Yes, I tried searching, but it brought up all posts)

Thanks.

Dreamacre-

Here is a Google search on iRV2 for the terms "security light" and "bulb."

Several folks have found that the incandescent bulbs get hot enough to melt the lenses, and that they burn out quickly. Once you find out what type of bulb you need, you may want to replace it with an LEB "bulb" instead. There are several reputable vendors; I use superbrighteleds.com.

For our 2003:

security light bulb, OE is 1295= 35 watts


It is hard to find.

This one is an easy to find substitute, a little less bright:
1156= 28.5 watts/

Interesting.

The 1141 mentioned in that thread is 18.4 watts.

The 1156 I went with is 28.5 watts.

The light I took out when I replaced it
1295 is 35 watts

Those are about the same wattages as I found in a table a few years ago, which also showed the following lumens for the above bulbs:

1141 - 104 lumens
1156 - 160 lumens
1295 - 250 lumens (short life span)

I replaced mine with two LED lights, which have a combined 440 lumens at 4.8 watts draw. They claim that LED lights don't attract bugs, but I don't know that I believe that!

I found a 2 pack of 1156 LED bulbs at Advanced Auto for $7 and change. Replaced the bulb and am very pleased with the light output. I think I will leave regular bulb in passenger side as it is a nicer glow. Thanks.

Our 2002 Dutch Star came with the 1295's in all four of the "scare" lights. NAPA had them for $5.95 EACH. I bought a dozen of them online. Then a couple years ago I replaced them with 48 LED flat panels. Boy was that bright!!

BTW: Hi Brett!
