Lighting in melbourne

Has anyone changed their reading lightbulbs over the bed? They are so hot. I know they are bayonet fittings, but there is no wattage written on it. Does anyone know what wattage to get to put in that would not be so hot?
Thanks

Meantime, 10W. Make sure you take one with you. Most you see are glass covered wires, while these are bare...Walmart carries.

Mrusa, we were at the Entegra factory getting our punch list fixed and had 6 of them out. Asked them to replace all halogens with LEDs so do not know part numbers.

I can help with that. This is where I bought mine from.

http://www.rvledbulbs.com/

More specifically:

http://www.rvledbulbs.com/category-s/46.htm

I replace every halogen in our 2012 Aspire. Just be sure to get the color you'll like. The natural white is what I went with but if I did it again I think I'd go with warm white. Natural white is almost like fluorescent lighting color.

The two pin are a direct replacement for your halogens. No adapters needed. I even did the map lights above the drivers and passengers seats. Those were a wedge light.
