Hi Jesse,

What a great idea...I would like to convert the light fixtures in our 42QD to LED. I tried replacing the existing halogen bulbs with LED and wasn't happy with the light output. What is name of the manufacturer and the part number of the fixtures you purchased for your coach?

I bought my LEDs from an outfit called Scintluna(sp). They are a Warm White 15LED that fit well into the existing fixture. I can't tell the difference between them and the halogen bulbs. They were about $6.50 each if I remember right. If you install them on the smaller fixtures, you have to cut off about 1/4" of the wire to make it fit.

I had Atlas glass and mirror cut it to size. (40"x 73") It was 1/8th inch thick to keep the weight down. I had them install an anti shatter material on the back for safety (it was white so it looks good from the living room). I got the black trim at Pep boy's (it was door trim). I used the two sided tape recommended by the glass company.

Thanks,


Jesse

Jesse, love the mirror. I too have a 2013 QD but have only stayed overnight on night as it is in storage until Spring when I go full time. That night i noticed the light and love what you did with the mirror. You mentioned double sided tape. Does that mean you just taped it on to the door? or is it also screwed down too?

I told the glass company that screwing to the door was a deal breaker for me. They recommended a tape that would not fail along with an anti shatter shield. They did say that if I ever wanted to remove it that they could do it without any damage.

I'm considering doing the same thing on the lights in my 2013 Tour, in hopes of being able to spend more time dry docking. What should I expect in estimated costs and time to make the changes? Did you do any analysis on the energy saving in making the switch?

Thanks for sharing,

Marco

Approximately $650.00 inside. 2 half days with a helper keeping me loaded with supplies. I found it quicker to drop a row of lights at a time then cut the wires on all the row then crimp the wires then screw them all in then install all of the lenses. Uses 1/3 the amps and 10% of the heat output.
I used the same light assembly's to upgrade an 06 Suncruiser. The owner loves them.

Good idea, but I like to barge in on my wife while she is in the shower.

LOL! Maybe she will leave it unlocked for you.

Another good idea. I didn't think about it but a Mother-in-Law is coming for a visit so that might make a big difference. I shudder to think about walking in on her!!:rolleyes:
