LED Recommendations for 06 Navigator

Hi folks! Can anyone give me some brand name suggestions for beginning the conversion to LED bulbs in our 06 HR Navigator? It seems like an overwhelming task lol

Thanks
Jerry

I have used Hero brand bought via Amazon. Changed out a couple three dozen bulbs in our current coach.

You don't nessisary have to change all - focus on the most often used.

Some fixtures my not lend themselves to direct bulb replacement. It's pretty easy to get a roll of self adhesive LEDs and some connector wires and put as many as needed in the fixture.

I have had real good luck with Joe at Cabin Bright. He is very approachable and will offer any help you might need. He is not the cheapest compared to some you can find on Amazon, however I got tired of chasing the right sizes and shapes and having some DOA until I met Joe last January at the Tampa RV show. He hasn't let me down yet. Www.cabinbright.com

I assume you have 40+ of the 3" round ceiling lights with halogen bulbs?
I used Kingso LED lamps from Amazon. They are $15.99 for 10 bulbs and come in two colors. I used Pure white in the front cockpit area, the hall, closet, and the bathroom. I used warm light over the kitchen cabinets to enhance the cherry wood tone.
The lens covers screw off, but they tend to stick to the vinyl celing. I used a small plastic tool from a door trim removal kit to pry the glass lens covers loose.


Previously, a string of lights with the halogen bulbs used aprox 10 amps and now with the LED bulbs it is 1 amp.

I changed all of mine with bulbs from Amazon. If you can post pictures of specifically what you are trying to change, we can probably help you find the right ones.

I've bought a few different replacements for the small Halogen G4 bulbs (mini pin), since I was replacing them a few at a time. These are the ones I most recently bought and they were significantly brighter than any of the others, so I just ordered a new batch to swap out most of the older LEDs and the few remaining halogens.

Paul, I also bought a package of "Best to Buy" the round puck lights. They were $25.99 for 6 bulbs and are not as bright as the "Kingso Corn" bulbs that are $15.99 for 10 bulbs (160 vs 220 Lumens). Try a pack of the Kingso Pure White and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Sadly, or perhaps not, I have replaced all mine. The "perhaps not" relates to the fact I found I was compelled to clean the coach more carefully once I put in the new bulbs. Might have to get it even cleaner with brighter ones!

I bought over 60 of the side pin flat ones for about $1.00 each through Amazon. Broke a pin or two off, but the others all worked. I did find that the overhead ones in the brdroom needed to be brighter so I bought 10 high powered ones from M4. Not cheap at about $10 each, but they are brighter.

I also can highly recommend Joe at Cabin Bright. I changed all my interior light to LED's and am very satisfied.

YA 250 Lm LED isn't going to be very bright especially if you have a frosted lens cover. Get as bright as you can.
