Thanks to Dennis I got this website for replacing lighting in Rv to led's

http://www.rvledbulbs.com/

Best pricing I have found for the same lights.

This is what I used to replace the 1141/1156 bulbs
http://www.rvledbulbs.com/product-p/hp-1141n-10.htm

I replaced one of the florescent lights with this
http://www.rvledbulbs.com/product-p/18-0706.htm

They both work awesome, just need to pony up and replace the three other florescent lights.

If you buy 100+ you get free shipping, or at least I did. Also if use use forum for the coupon code you get another 15% off

Like I said I really like the color and light output of the lights. the 1141/1156 lights are really close to same color and light output of the regular incandescent bulbs.

I replaced all the G4 puck type lights in the ceiling with dimmable LED's....wow what a difference in lighting and heat.

Going to order the LED replacements for the florescent lights in the stacker too

I spent a lot of time on ebay comparing, I had seen those but they are the wrong color. I wanted the 4000-4500k bulbs

I tried the 4000-4500, too bright for us, real close to flourescent color. 3000-3500 is warm white like a incandescent. Ro wouldnt stand for 4000-6000, I have all LED now even a few 3 watt puck style that I gutted the under cabinet fixtures and mounted them inside, looks stock.

It was 2 trips before Ro realized I had changed everything :buford:

Funny, the 4000-4500 look just like the 1141 bulbs, I lit them up side by side in two different fixtures. The 6000 ones imo are too bright.

3000-3500 make me feel like my batteries are going dead. Maybe I just need more of them in my crappy little trailer.

Remembering that color is only part or it. Lumens and readability are more important and that is achieved by the number of SMD's and thier size. More is better and 5050 is the smallest you want to consider.

All things created equal 3200k is supposed to be closest to incadesant. For a cooler color a coating is applied to the surface of the led. Seems to last a good while but with time i think they will get btighter. Maybe they have longer lasting coatings now but when we had custom colors made they always faded in time. I like brighter vic likes cooler, she will have her way for a while :vib:

I like the brighter ones in my dimmable fixtures in the kitchen area and the soft ones above the bunk beds for the Cialis moment that strikes us Nor-Cal Spooners.

Yep, I'm with you there. If the light was any lower then I'd fell the same way. I have had 6000 lights and they are to blue but the 4000-4500 seem just about right. Thats just my opinion. Now on the florescent lights the 4000-4500 are not bright enough by them selves, but I turn one of the lights off, but with one florescent and one led its perfect, I will replace the other florescent when I get the money and let you all know

AutoZone has a good selection of led strip lighting for inside or outside, in quite a few different colors. They can be cut to any length, and mount with peel and stick 3M tape. They even have ones that pulse with music or change colors randomly. Most of them are hooked up to a battery in the package so you can try them right there in the store.

Just replaced all lights in/on the trailer with leds for under $200 from amazon. The amount of juice you save by going led is incredible.

not a 100% happy with the floresent, love the light but think the circuit board is sensitive to voltage changes on the same circuit and will cause them to flicker ocassionally. Have learned to deal with it, also had the company replace them under warrenty and the new ones do the same thing, but I would not go back to the regular florescents. All the 1141/1156 replacement lights are awesome and have not had any problems with them.

I'll stay away from the florescent, and try to stick with a bulb replacement.

Looks solid, price is pretty good for a local vendor.

If I cant find any bulbs in Dennis's box of bulbs i'll definitely buy from him.

I've been a Rigid LED snob until now, but just ordered 2 work/flood lights for the van and a front light bar for the truck from M3. I compared the specs for a while, and you really do get a lot more for your money with some of their products. I paid about 175 for the 3 lights, and a comparable light bar from Rigid would be 300 by itself.

The coupon code works, I got $40 off my order.

I got 2 8 inch lights for the front of the Rhino and all I can say is WOW!! Steve knows his LED's... Ordered a set of H4 LED headlights for my Motorcycles, should be crazy!!

I have a friend who just got a brand new stellar toy hauler. He installed led bulbs in his under cabinet fixtures and they keep tripping the breaker??? Bulbs are 1056 style he removed from his previous trailer. Any suggestions?

yz450mm
04-10-2014, 02:48 AM
loose wire, short to ground. remove all bulbs and install one by one until it pops, then remove fixture and check the wiring. could also be an internal short in one of the bulbs.

Dont understand breaker ? 120v circuit should have breakers, 12v should be fuses ? Led should be using fused 12v.

mcseriously
04-10-2014, 03:49 AM
It should be a fuse, maybe I just misunderstood him. It only happens when he puts the led in. He tried a few different led bulbs in and same thing. Put the original 1056 bulbs back in and it works fine. The trailer came with 95% led bulbs, he was trying to swap out those that werent

Make sure what he is replacing, really is a 1056. There is several lamps that will fit in that socket. The wrong one will short out if you have like a1157 style or the other one. Some have 1 tit on bottom, some have 2 tits ...
