LED lights

by Katrina - DangRV
(Utah)

LEDs have changed and gotten much better. We replaced all our major-use 18W incandescents with 4W LEDs and now have more light rather than less.

Main thing is to get yellow light LEDS, not white ones which are very hard on the eyes. We use a white waterproof one outside and wouldn't mind it in the bathroom but everywhere else we use yellow light LEDs.

They cost $25 apiece but you only need one in dual fixtures and they last much longer than incandescents, not to mention they run cooler so you don't have to keep replacing light covers. I got mine in Quartzsite, AZ at the annual swap meet. Many RV stores now carry them.

Buy the solar spotlights and have them trained on your trailer or where people walk.I have them up and people love them.

LED's
by: Bud Corwin

Hi Katrina,
Just a quick post in regards to yours on LED's. At 25 bucks a crack, I probably won't be replacing many of my halogens as I have 21 of them. Maybe the price will come down someday soon and I sure would like to replace them. They burn too hot and they are not cheap either at anywhere between $3.50 and $8.00 each. And they don't last all that long. I found some 12 watters on sale a while back and bought a few of them. After changing a couple, a short time later, the glass fell out as the plastic melted. Who would think two watts higher would cause such a major temperture change?
