I own a 2008 Country Coach Intrigue #12247 and would like to replace all the 12 volt interior lights with the appropriate crossed referance LEDS bulbs so as to reduce the drainage on my house batteries and also the heat that is created from the stock bulbs that came with the Coach. I have a supplier who claims the LEDS will work with the Intellitec remote switching system with light dimming feature. What are your thoughts about doing this?

I think it would be a great upgrade; if the cost is not too high, go for it!

It all depends on the LEDs you get, for two reasons:

1 - I have seen some LED bulbs that specify, "Do not use with dimmer".
2 - I recently bought 4 LED bulbs as replacements for 1383 reading lamps (LED1383R12 at $9.75 ea), but we returned them because they did not put out a flood pattern as claimed, and they were totally unacceptable for use as a reading lamp.

I would want to see how well the LED works before I bought it.

Benjie;

I just purchased 2 LED strips to replace 2 Thin-light fluorescent tubes for the same reason you want them. My DW does not like them and asked me not to do any more.

I was looking into the LED light too. Looks like they don't use that much electricity, but I was wondering how much light it gives out? Motorhome is only year and a half old and have to replace three lights in it. Fleetwood must use the cheapest bulbs. The LEDs at the St. Paul rally were twenty bucks a pop, can buy a lot of bulbs for that.
