Electric smell

In the bedroom lamps the 1076 bulbs smell funny and inside has turned black. Ideas? They still function.

Some filament bulbs get really really hot.
Switch to LED......save electric power and virtually no heat.

The led's are available in many shades of Kelvin and lumens, you generally get more lumens for more money

Check several before pulling the triger

There is nothing "motorhome" about a bulb. Similar to the bulbs used in your car. You need to buy a type that has the same base (the socket the bulb plugs into) and most 12vdc bulbs are available at Walmart, auto parts stores, etc. For a greater selection of temperature "colors" and lumens (brightness), try Amazon, Ebay or a big led retailer such as superbrightleds.com/


If you want to learn more about the greater choices available with led bulbs, I've written an article explaining the terms and what they mean to the average person (no engineering prattle - just the basics!). It's on our sister RVing site at http://www.rvforum.net/miscfiles/LED...ng_for_RVs.pdf
