Retro with LED's

We have a 2011 Aspire that we just replaced all the bulbs in the house with LED's. Wow, what a differents it makes!! Thought it would be a good idea, but never considered how hot those halogens get. Much more pleasent in the coach now with the A/C's working alot less. Also, the draw of these LED's is much, much lower.

I know that the 2013's are standard with LED's but older coaches like mine make this a cheap retro fix.

Total cost was under $600 to replace about 44 lights.

Well worth the price.

I replaced all the 10W G-4 bulbs so far, must have been about 14. Check e-bay, those were in a 10pack and much less than the stores. A whiter light and cooler too.

I did all the lights in our 2012 Aspire. Love the LED's. Recommend the Warm White. Cool White looks to much like fluorescents.

As previously stated, check e-bay for LED lights. We replaced every light inside the coach with an LED over a year ago and have not had any problems with the Chinese lights. Much cheaper. Granted I would have rather bought from a U.S. company, but could not justify the cost difference.

Replaced all mine last year including all the floresents. Used cool white strip lights in those, six fixtures for about $50. Used the warmer LEDs in the 12 incondesents. Seems to me the whole project was about $200. On the average, an incondesent will use 1.0 amp, an LED only 0.1 amp. Big difference in energy usage and heat!

All these stories are great, but unless we provide more specifics, these commentaries are just all words. How about posting some specifics, like where you got these replacements? Other than cost, the #1 concern with most people is the TEMPERATURE of the new light. A "WARM" light is not always "WARM", meaning definitions really do vary across the spectrum. Some mfrs. term a "warm" light from 3000 to 3500 deg., while a real "warm" light in incadescent terms is up in the 6000+ range. Another consideration is AMOUNTS of light provided, in terms of lumens. A G4 replacement is not always an identical replacement in terms of light output. Finally, COST is always a consideration, so please address this issue as well. If we try to post along these lines, I think more of us can be helped with this topic.

Led lights

The 2013's only have LEDs in the rows down the center. The reading lights, under the kitchen counter, etc. are still halogen. Our dealer replaced all to LEDs.
