LED light bulbs

I bought six of these light bulbs and got them in today. Installed them in the light assembly in the living room. They are a little bit blue in color and look bright enough in my travel trailer. I ordered more today. I think they are at a great price.

They are half of that on ebay, china direct. It's hit or miss on color though, most want warm white, but they are good about replacing or exchanging. Converted the whole coach for very little money. So far so good. Great energy savings. Some good threads around on the subject.

Color can be an issue but if you use a reputable supplier, it may cost a little more but they will send the colors you ask for. I have found it to be worth the small extra cost since I want "warm white" in all reading areas.

I orderded a bunch back in 2005 or 6, and they were very blue and not very bright.. Since I have found several that are very white and very bright.. I mean brighter than a 1141 and likely brighter than a 1156.

I have a box of 10 due in today.. Do not yet know how bright they will be (Seller claims as good as my ECO LED brand units.. only 10 for the price of one).

Was just at an RV dealer today. for 12" Florcesent replacement LED strips they wanted 45 bucks (NO SALE!!!!) 25 I'd have considered.

If you want quality, choice in color etc with a warranty and worthy company see my recent post I made below:
Just finished a complete LED retrofit of my 2002 Monaco Knight 38PBD with all Cabin Bright products, amazing beyond compare! The vanity lights and X Factor are dynamic to say the least. Replaced 12 fluorescent tubes with X Factor replacements, truly no comparison with the competition. The vanity replacements are also a change in class!

I will say the owner of cabin bright will take your personal calls and discuss products, specs and suggestions. He is an electrical engineer and actually test each product before shipping, a company worth it's weight.

By comparison my complete retrofit was approx one third the cost of the competition yet I find the quality a step above and then some!

Game changing products, I researched for four months and glad I went with Cabin Bright
