Not sure if this will help, and you may have already decided not to do this. But perhaps just make the pucks in the bedroom the same, and move the salvaged ones out of the bedroom to make all of the ones in the front the same. (You get the idea, buy the minimum amount of the ones that are different, and use them where needed. For example, in our bedroom area, we could make all the pucks in over the bed the same, and it would not even be seen unless someone was laying on the bed!

And, the best quality lights I have found, are from M-4 Products. Their Elite line are pricey, but of very good quality. Just another source to check for LED's.

Best to all,
Smitty

Smitty: I had the same idea as I'm missing several ones with the lens and/or rings. I have a place where they have advertised just parts and may have the sizes that I need. I'll check them out first. If that didn't work I'll go with your suggestion.
The LED bulbs I just got seem to fit nicely and are as bright or brighter than the Halogens. Is there a trick to placing the rings perhaps with some silicone not to come off in a bumpy ride? I ordered some LEDs with 15S base for the bay areas they were much more expensive, fortunately they are not that many of them.
Thanks,

Funny, everyone has their own favorite LED supplier. I'll throw mine in too. Superbrightleds.com
I think anyone who sells good quality LEDs would be fine. Expensive, but fine. There are some cheap overseas made LEDs that start to go bad and are a fire hazard. If the price seems too good to be true it probably is. My experience is that the rings stay on good as long as both tabs are in the slot then turned tight. I have a couple that a tab had broken and needed to be replaced. I have gold hardware (Yuck!) and I bought the last of the gold ones Kevin had available. I needed most to replace the glass. When I was replacing the bulbs with LEDs I broke several of the inserts. Seems like they pop off when you aren't over carpet of forgot the towel over the tile or counters. Now I need to figure out how to rewire with an on/off switch for the center lights. There isn't enough current draw to turn off the LEDs that are on a dimmer switch so I still have a ton of quartz halogens to swap out.

I didn't think about this, but after I changed the bulbs to LEDs, I put two pieces of a double sided tape about 1/2" squares about 180 degrees from each other on the ring. I will see what happens.
Thanks for the suggestion!

Update

I was able to have the frosted glass pieces get cut by United Glass shop, here in town. I got 10 of them for $45. I was told their glass would be a little thicker than the original.
Also, contacted Premier RV. They have the rings for $9.95 each. I 'm only missing a few rings, but quite a few glass pieces. It is because when they fall on the tile floor they break.
Thanks, again, for everyone's suggestions.

Well, the bulbs never arrived! The place I ordered from says they were possibly confiscated by Customs! I asked why Customs would confiscated LED bulbs and they never answered me. Did refund my money right away.
So the search continues!

I don't find them and even a search on Google doesn't get anything.

Bought some through Amazon. They fit the lensless ones that the bulb fits vertically in but not the puck lights with the lenses and bulb horizontal. So back to the search.
Did find some round ones that would work but I have about 50 lights to replace and they want $29 EACH for the units!

This is what I have and they seem to fit the horizontal fixtures - $14.44 for 20!

Tried that link, eBay says I'm not the buyer nor seller and won't let me see it.

I bought and received 7 of these: Ledwholesalers Disc Type G4 Base Side Pin 10 SMD Led, 10 Watt Holagen Replacemnt For RV Camper Trailer Boat Marine, warm White, 1109ww - Led Household Light Bulbs - Amazon.com I can make them fit by removing the reflector and clipping a reflector support, then add a little glue to hold the bulb. Waiting for the glue to dry now. They are dimable but not with the same range as the halogen. I am working on one of the puck lights over the sink as I found the outside ring melted and even the reflector is inside. I need some 70 bulbs of different types, so far I've bought 17 so a lot more to go, then maybe I'll start on the storage bays!

SRH, Yes, on using silicone, just a dab on each side where the dimples fit. works well on my 08 Intrigue but I haven't switched to LED's yet either. Thanks for providing the links. May be just what I need.
