Not familiar with your coach but, LEDs are cool to the touch. Halogens will burn the skin off your finger. So easy enough to test if you don't know what either looks like. The amperage draw of an average 12v incandescent automotive bulb is about 1.0 amp. A comparable LED bulb is about 0.1amp. On an average LEDs save 80-90% in electricity over incandescent.

Amps = Watts/Volts

So if your halogens are 50w that's: 50/12v= 4.16 amps.

This is why those that do a lot of dry camping, switch over to LED lighting.

If your coach is using the same LED fixtures used by Winnebago (which I suspect it is), the 4.75 inch fixture contains 21 surface mount LEDs and draws 0.61 amps. The light output is 340 lumens with a color temperature of 3000 deg. K. These fixtures look identical to the halogen ones (and are made by the same company) and you can confirm by simply twisting the glass off. The light output is slightly greater than a 20 watt halogen bulb and dramatically cooler but still warm.

OK thanks

Does the glass twist off or do you need a flat screw driver to "pop" it off?

Recessed light removal

The glass is a lens that has some detents on it that "screw" on. To remove the lens use your hand (no tools) and rotate it CCW from the mounting. If you try to remove the metal can base, it's difficult because they are held by spring clips from the back. There are three spring metal tabs arranged at 120 deg around the base. The only way to release them from the front (they are easy to push the tabs in if you can reach from behind) is to use a small screwdriver and work it in beside the fixture. I've been trying to remove one in the vanity but it looks like it'll damage the paneling too much. Here's a pic of one Entegra sent me. The lights are called Kaper II's.

I was out there today replacing bulbs in the under the counter halogens. Tough to get to the two hockey puck lights behind the microwave. I was laying across the whole counter with my head tilted all the way back to see thru my glasses! Tough bulbs to replace. The bulbs are in very tight which is good, but I broke two pins off on two different lights and had to remove entire light to get the pins out before new install.

Pat, please advise supplier and part #'s for the halogen replacements. How does the LED light output compare with the the original halogen lights?

I replaced all the small nickel pucks, wall fixtures and 10watt ceilings with LED but cannot get one of the 20 watt can ones apart.
