Smile Replacing Light Fixtures

We need to replace our under counter fluorescent light that is over our sink. This is for a 2007 Monaco Dip. There is no vender name on it.. Any idea would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Could be a Thin Lite Welcome to Thin-Lite - Thin Lite Inc.


If it is a bad ballast, you can replace it with one from eBay

Not sure if that’s the problem.. After 11 years, we might as well replace the whole fixture.. But would like to find one the same size.. I don’t think this is a Thin Lite..
I’ve got a call into Monaco.... I was 15 in line the first time I called .:(((
Thanks for getting back to us.

Don’t bother calling Monaco as they have stop supporting order rigs. Put LED panels in your fluorescent light fixture and be done with it. I use panels instead of strips because the strips are giving very poor life/service for me.

I found a real nice LED surface mount fixture to replace the fluorescent one that was over the sink. It’s from Thin-Lites premium line and I got it from solarseller.com alternative energy by John Drake Services, Inc.. It was a direct fit, has two brightness levels and a dimmer...very nice. I got the Thin-Lite model “LED412P” which is 16-1/8”L x 7-3/8W x 3/4T. They also offer “LED416P” which is 21-7/8”L.

Paints,

We have a 2006 Camelot with factory fluorescent fixtures like yours. Last year I converted all of them to LED.

Several people on the forum recommend M4 Products in California, so I gave them a call and ordered a couple of their LED fluorescent tube replacements to see if I liked them, They are LED units that snap into the existing fixture sockets as a direct replacement for the original tubes. The original fluoresce ballast is no longer needed and is easily disconnected.

I was extremely pleased with the result, and immediately ordered enough to do the whole coach. M4 product line is more expensive than some of the other on-line LED that I have seen, but less expensive that what I found at the local RV store. All of the different style lamps that I have ordered from them shipped very quickly and appear to be of high quality.

Hope this helps,

Jim
