Can these LED's work with a dimmer switch?

we changed all of them in our class B it was definitely worth the cost, better light quality and the house batteries last much longer. Before you buy the all buy one cool and one warm and see what you like. I prefer the cool in te living areas, they seem much brighter and crisp, and warm in the bedroom it is a softer light and not as intrusive. I switched them all in my boat several years ago (like 4 years), haven't had a failure in a bulb yet.

They do make special dimmer controls for only LEDs. The old standard types won't work.

My son-in-law bought 2 dozen LEDs for me as a gift. I replaced all the interior light bulbs and tried to put the brighter LEDs over the tables for task or reading use. My bulbs are blue, which I don't mind, but none are as bright as the incandescents. Get a mix and try to but the highest lumen output for those high-use spots. Pay a little extra if necessary for those.

I ordered from RV-LED.com - Your source for LED lights for your RV , and they are dimmable.

All of them are as bright or brighter than the incandescent bulbs I replaced.

I bought from them also. Their LEDs are much better quality than the cheap ones from ebay that I tried first. If you do buy from them, you can get a 10% discount by entering the code FORUM when checking out.

As to the OP's original question: Most of the time I am dry camping, so the energy saving from the LEDs is definitely worth the price. If you never dry camp, you might not need them.
