Has anyone installed any LED interior lights in their trailer? I am wanting to install two LED lights with built in switch, similar to the Warrior interior lights, into the cargo bay of my RV.
Dose anyone have a source for such a light (store bought of Internet address)?

Hey Bubba!! Good morning!!

Here's a place you can get them... http://autolumination.com/specifications.html...they're supposed to be alot brighter than anything else...could be an excellent choice for your cargo bay!!

Tom, my FS2300 did not come with lights in the cargo area and I thought LED lights would be the way to go because of the low amp draw and lack of heat if I forgot and left them on.

The dove hunting sucked. Not many birds flying but we are going up to the lease again this coming weekend and give her another try. Maybe by now some Northern birds have migrated down.

Bubba, Go on sean's site HERE and scroll down to the " 8 led utility and dome light." I think that would be your best option. Nice site sean, good prices. BB

Hey...how's the homework for the show going??!! Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday...2PM?

Got a question...looked all over that site and couldn't find any info on what led count bulb I'd need to replace the standard 1156 or 1157 bulbs in the RV lights...do you have any idea? I don't want to go with something that's less ilumination, but sure don't need to buy those $19.99 bulbs either!!

My guess is for a small fortune, we could replace all the bulbs in our coaches with these LED bulbs, save A WHOLE BUNCH of power doing it (espiecially those who run inverters), replace bulbs alot less, and most of all- keep the darn heat from building up (let's face it...easier to run the heater in the winter than the AC in the summer).

Whatdayathink?

Thanks! Sean

Sean,

When something actually goes right, I'll let you know! Looking foward to it though. Did you get my PM about the pole light's?

I hear ya on those replacement bulbs! Most LED's are directional with their lighting so picking the right bulb will be important. Shipping wasn't too bad, so maybe contact them for advise and try one or two styles till you find one your happy with. I'm going to try one of our light strips in a overhead light, I'll let you know how that works out. BB

Hummm BB...no- I didn't get your PM, I think, unless it was the one from last Saturday and you working with Corky?

I'll give that Company a call and see if I can find something out...we've (I mean WW) has already had to replace one fixture because it melted the cheap Taiwanese plastic they used for the lense. Just can't get any quality anymore I tell ya!!

See ya Saturday!! 2PM still, right?

Sean

Twin:

I've been reading up on this subject, specifically about replacing the ones in the coach, and we definitely need to find the right bulbs...there are "good" oes, and there are "not-so-good" ones...at anywhere from $6.99ea to $25.99 each, we need to 'splore this a bit better...have you already found the one for your cargo area?

Sean

I haven't decided on the lights yet. That mod may have to wait a while. Last weekend, leaving a gas station I bent the rear bumper on my WW so right now I need to figure out how to bend it back into place then do something to prevent it from happening again.
