I see. I didn't realize there was that much difference, but I sure found out about the lumens when my first purchase was like 160-180 lumens!

The 250 is sure a lot better, and those 6000-7000 Kelvins are a bit harsh, but all these will continue dropping over time so in the next year or so they will be cheaper than they are even now....

Just so I understand...are we talking about replacing the bulbs in the overhead swivel lights. All these will fit right in the socket and not extend out past the shield and can be swiveled to direct the light. Thanks

vanion2, Lincolnboy2 and I are talking about bulbs that fit in a variety of fixtures but not sure if they are right for your application. For mine it is the "Pancake Fixtures" that use 1141 bulbs many RV companies install.

Led bulbs

The pancake fixtures are the ones with single or double white flat plastic coverings that are mounted overhead?
Is there a preferred bulb for the swivel spot lights?
Thanks

Yes that is a pancake. Like this:



Can you tell us what kind of bulbs you have in your lamps?

OK fellow LED Geeks, I could use some advice for my outdoor lights. I have Hawk/ITC Scare Lights (Model 81760-D) and would like to replace the 20 watt halogen bulbs with something more efficient. I would prefer warm white and something at least 250 lumens. The current bulbs are T3/G4, put out 350 lumens and look like this:

Replaced all of my interior 1156/7's with these over a year ago. They still work great:

Jumping on the G4 wagon. I have vertical mounted puck lights that need G4 too.

Have had good luck with the quality of M4 lighting on otter LED bulbs. But thought I'd ask here too, on good quality G4 non disc shaped bulbs( the coin shape disc ones will not fit into the cone of the pucks).

Interior, and non yellow please. Ideas?

I replaced all mine, even the cargo lights and porch light (except for the fridge light). Experimented with different ones in the last camper and these are what I prefer. The round vanity LEDs and long neck LEDs for the rotating wall fixtures are also listed below. Not a single failure and these LEDs are all a little brighter than the incandescents they replaced. I can run 8 to 10 of these for the same power draw as one of the old incandescent bulbs and they produce no heat to speak of.

1141 Replacements

Vanity Lights

Long Neck Wall Lamps

Rather than use 1141 replacements which waste much of the light, I opted for 36 LED panels in warm white. Much brighter and no wasted light output.

I tried the flat panels in the last RV. They worked okay in most fixtures but they do seem to focus the light directly down and the double sided tape would fail when it got hot in the summer so the LED panels wound up laying on the lens. They defused light a little better in the white lenses but I found using them in the clear lenses did not defuse the light very well.
I have no problems with the round ones (no tape needed) and the ones I used give off more light than the incandescents did.
