Ceiling Lights

I have a 2008 National Tropical LX. One of my ceiling lights has burned out. Where can I get a ballast,or a new light.
It is a low volt RV luminaire. Type RVL-18RC-W.

If it is a thinlight florescent most any RV dealer will have the "Ballast" (really an inverter) and I've found replacement florescent tubes at Wal-mart, home, Depot, lowes, and any "Lighting" store you care to choose.

IDEA... Friend of mine found some LED backup lights.. He replaced teh Florescents with one of those. Till he mentioned it (Only one fixture was changed when I visited) I could not tell the difference, equally as bright.. I'm going to do the same mod.. About the same price as a pair of tubes.

This sounds like a great idea. I'm a huge fan of LEDs in my home...have replaced several ceiling "can" lights with LEDs and we're very pleased with the light.

Would love a link for replacing the flourescents in the coach with LEDs.
