Bedroom high intensity bulb

Has anyone changed the bulb to led and how do you remove it. Twist it or screw out? Also how do you winterize the blk tank flush out? Can not get antifreeze into it.

Most 12 volt bulbs I have run across are just push in and give it a 1/4 turn.

As far as the black tank flush line, I just use compressor pressure set at 40 psi. Same as the rest of our rig. I don't like putting antifreeze in the system, only the p-traps and washing machine get antifreeze.

I changed mine, had the same problem , I just bought new fixtures and changed them out, more then likely you would have to pump the AF in the line, I really don’t add it to mine easier just to blow the water out.

The high intensity bulbs get very hot so must be 120v.

Easy to check if 12 or 120 volts. Just disconnect from shore power and see if the lights work.

12 volt bulbs get very hot as well. That's one big advantage of switching to LED lights, as well as basically 1/10th power consumption.

Happy Glamping.

Out of 5 different trailers or RV that I have owned I have never had any 120 volt lighting, all been 12 volt.

Retyping from scratch, just vanished................

Not sure what bulbs you are wanting to change out. Undercabinet recessed reading lamps? These are tiny glass halogen bulbs with two pin contacts. Extremely hot and about 10 watt draw. The LED replacements are round coin style with side pins on them, and draw less than a watt each.

I have converted three RV's so far, different types of bulbs in the different fixtures, but have used M4Products in all of them. I HIGHLY recommend them. They are not the cheapest, but the quality is super, and the color rendition is standardized across the different types of bulbs. I prefer the daylight color, pure white, not blue or yellow. Great for my old eyes. M4 has very good quality stuff, alot of it they engineer themselves and have it made exclusively for them.

https://m4products.com/?gclid=CKuDr5...FU8dgQodVWcNKA

The first conversion I didn't know anything so I watched the LED conversion videos by RV Geeks on Youtube and learned alot. The videos are old now but still very useful.

https://www.youtube.com/c/RVgeeks/se...d%20conversion

I used the M4 Elite Series. I have had only one bi pin bulb fail, it quit suddenly and I sent it to them and they replaced it quickly.

My current trailer had been converted with cheap LED bulbs that already had failed LEDs on them and the color was all mixed up, so I replaced them with a complete set of M4 bulbs and retained a couple of the old ones to install in outside access storage compartment fixtures where they rarely are used.
