Smile LED Lighting Discount

There is a new website for LED lighting that is offering a 15% promotional discount and free shipping on orders over $100. It is RVLEDBulbs.com - RV LED Bulbs and Light Accessories and they handle the excellent Startlight Revolution brand of Led bulbs. Check it out and enter the discount code AC15 to get the discount. I think the offer is good to 6/30/2011.


I bought a bunch for my coach - the F15T8 and F8T5 replacements for fluorescents, 4 of 1141 replacements for storage bay lights that I use a lot, and four of the G4 halogen replacements for the galley lights. All are excellent and we are very happy with them. It was a bit expensive but I have cut my amp consumption dramatically, plus I doubt if I will ever have to replace one of these bulbs again. And I'm really happy to get rid of those hot halogens.

I used to go through several of the fluorescent tubes every year at about $6 each, so I figure to break even in a couple years.

I learned about the new web site at The Hitching Post of Ocala [FL], a hitch and towbar shop that is expanding into more RV services. The Led lighting is a new venture for them and I guess they are offering the promotional discount to get the new web site established.

Thanks for the link, Gary. 15% discount is a good one & it doesn't take buying many bulbs to reach the free shipping theshhold. Now, if they'd just carry the one's I've been looking for since last June. Can't find 'em anywhere on the internet.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

At the price of Leds, 15% is a nice piece of change. I bought enough to save a hunk.

They have some exterior light fixtures too, like the motion detector porch light, and they can be incandescent or Led.

Got that (black version) & the bulbs in the fixture I showed above at the FW MHA rally last June. Love, love, LOVE 'em.

Nice!! We're in process of converting all our bulbs to LED and are sure interested in the discount. Do you have any pics of the new lights? Are colors good? I will definitely check 'em out but would love to see any pics if you have them. Nina

NLOVNIT,
The LED in the top corner of Gary's link will work perfectly for your lights. Just changed out a bunch of ours and very satisfied. The 250 & 160 in the part #'s are for the lumen output. The 250's are a very bright blue/white like daylight, good reading lights.

Actually, not in our case they don't Rvpapa. We already tried those. The Revolution pictured in the link touches (the half round base does) the lens covers on our fixtures & they do not provide the wash of light the 36-led bulbs do because there aren't lights going down the sides of the base like the ones shown in what I pictured in my previous post. IMO, those 6 lights going down the side of the bayonette base make a difference in the light coverage within the fixture.

The picture on the left is with Revolution bulbs (notice the dark areas near the center divider); on the right is with the other bulbs.

Has anyone installed the G4 replacement LED lamps in a circuit with 2 level ltg such as in NEWMAR coaches?
What were the results?

Here are some photos with the "fluorescent" Leds.

One is an 18" Thinlight fixture with just one Led F15T8 equivalent. One "tube" gives plenty of light output, but the light is uneven behind the diffuser.

The other is a 12" Thinlight fixture with two of the F8T5 Led "tubes". This one lights just as even as the originals did.
