Upgrade inside motor home lights

Hi! MY husband and I have a 2007 national sea breeze LX 8360. We are in desperate need!!! I have night blindness and need to change the light bulbs to make it much brighter in the motorhome and are having difficulties finding bright lights. I was looking for LED bright lights and have been unsuccessful. Can someone please give us any suggestions???!!

Thank you!

I like the selection and price from this guy. Good customer service too. His business was mentioned in Motorhome magazine last year sometime.
Good luck.

One to do is find the temp that lights best for you. Leds are much better about giving temp with comparable meaning. 3500-4000 is similar to warm regular bulbs. 5000-6000 is similar to daylight and very white with slight bluish tint. For the 5k think the hid headlights you see on the road.

With Leds they are directional so light doesn't disperse as much.

Suggest you get a few bulbs of assorted temp and number of leds, which controls brightness.

Welcome to the Zoo Barbara!
Ray is correct. There are several different lamp colors and intensities available in LED's.
My wife also has vision issues and has a different bulb in her reading light than I do in mine.
I suggest you get on the net and do some research before you invest too much in bulbs. They last a long time but the initial investment isn't cheap!
If you are in an RV Park, see if any of your neighbors have upgraded and check theirs out before you spend any money...
Mike

If you do go LED lights (the 15.6' long strand type) make sure you get the ones with 600 LEDs instead of the 300s. More light, better coverage, and available in different color ranges.

I put 600s in our coach after removing the 300s I initially installed. Much better.

When buying LEDS or any type of bulb look at the LUMENS level that it puts out. The higher the brighter. Also the Colder bulbs would be better for your condition versus the Warmer ones.

M4 LED is a great company, I purchased several LED lights from them very high quality and very bright. They also have LED Tubes to swap out the old ballast style tubes with simple instructions on how to do it, they really light up the interior!
