My LEDs

I purchased 1141 replacements on eBay. Should have purchased warm white instead of bright light.

Has anyone experimented using defusers with the spots?

i will be ordering the wedge based bulbs in LED this week and will buy warm white.

Where did you get the LED lights you spoke about?

Amazon has a good selection

Amazon has a good selection at decent pricing:

RV LED Bulbs and Lights

Also read through this post about LED Lights as the first step to solar.  Several issues are discussed such as selecting color choice which is a different preference for each person.

Welcome to the clubhouse as well.  Glad to have you here!

We are not happy with either

We are not happy with either of the LED's we tried.

The light is other worldly and not very warm. We tried both warm white and bright white.

The only place we will use them is the front porch.  Incandecents are back in.

 

Thanks!

Perry,

Perry,

That is very odd.  There is no noticeable color difference on our warm LED's from the incadescants.  The bright white and white there is a difference, but the warm white is the same as the incadescents.  Where did you buy your bulbs?  Perhaps not a good source....

Incadescents are ok to use if you never camp without utilities, but if you are going to "boondock" or camp in the National Parks for any length of stay the LED's are a must to keep your battery good.

Light Bulbs

I have also changed all my light bulbs to LED's and noticed no difference in color balance.  I prefer the warm whites and used them throughout The Peanut.  - - Earl
