Ceiling Puck Lights-Halogen to LED Bulbs

Our current MH, 2010 Newmar Dutch Aire 4304, has (45) ceiling flush mount puck lights which have the 12v 10w G4 base halogen bulb in each one. I would like to "gradually" replace these with the equivalent LED bulb. Anyone with the same setup done this or could possibly furnish a part # for the LED bulb. Halogens have always seemed to hot for my taste.

I just bought 42 of these from Amazon for our 2013 Fleetwood Discovery. Fit great without any modification and the light is better than the halogens. $10.99 for 6

Thanks TC for the info and link. I'm probably going to try (1) 6pk of these and see how they work. If acceptable, more to finish the JOB. Good price I might add. The prices of LED's have really come down.

We bought the 6000k bright white bulb as we like the white light and not the yellow light. YMMV Happy Trails

Our current puck lites have a 3-way switch; on bright-off-on dimmer. Would this be considered dimming the lites or are we talking about a switch that lets u gradually dim a lite by rotating a dial?

Wow, I bet with all lights on looks like an airport run way. Our comfort range seems to be in the 3000K-3500K range and the warm light.

I originally went with the "warm white, 2600K-3300K but DW kept complaining they were to dim. I then ordered the "cool white" 5000K and they were so much better. i ordered mine from "Mini in the Box" (A search will bring up their web site).


At there prices you could order a couple of each to test them out. Shipping is not fast but it cost me 99 cents to ship 30 of them. Total for 30 bulbs was $53. Must be one heck of a mark-up by U.S. sellers.

The non-dimmable LED's are sensitive to voltage, so buy the "dimmable" LED bulbs and you are good to go.

You might want to visit this website:

M4 Products

They have a number of different LED's in many colors and brightness ranges. We went with the Samsung Elite series in 2014. We purchased about 40 lights of different styles, types, and brightness

The ones we purchased have adequate heat sinks and can operate over a fairly wide voltage range. They weren't the cheapest on the market, but they are good quality. In the 4+ years we've had them we haven't lost a single one.
