LED Headlight replacement

I am considering replacing my 7 inch round headlights with a Round LED replacement. GE makes a good unit.

Just wondered if anyone with an older motor-home has done this.

I've made this change on my motor cycles and it makes a world of difference.


The LED's are brighter and the road signs seem to come to life as do the lines in the road.


You may have noticed when LED's are coming at you, you will notice the brightness but it's not like the incandescent eye burn and once the vehicle passes you, your eyes recover much faster, therefore they are much safer IMHO.


Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

Common change out on a Jeep, stock H4 headlights are a joke. I installed JW Speaker LED's and they are great. One thing is they do not get hot and melt the snow of the light, I now see that is an option on them.
And as mentioned previously changed out on motorcycle also, again a big improvement.

I have not done all my homework on this, i need to make sure that I have the correct plug in, i assume its a 3 prong plug. I also see that they were selling on some models an anti flicker device. is that an issue? It looks like 200 to 250 is an average price for a good unit.

You will need to get one with the correct plug, most likely for a H4 bulb, pull your old bulb out and it should be marked. Most of the anti flicker devices are for the newer vehicles with a can bus system. Doubt you will need one on your rig.

They are expensive, but well worth the price will be the last headlight that you were ever have to buy of course unless you damage one
