The 3M outdoor tape peels off very nicely. The command stuff comes off even easier.

I've used rivets. Strong, and if you ever want it off, just put in another rivet.

I've not considered rivets. Any place to direct me to learn more about how to do that?

What would I need to do this?

I swapped the stock LED bulbs with these "warm" bulbs from M4Products.com:

Elite Series Retrofit Bulb

and wow what an improvement! The stock lights combined with the bright aluminum surfaces looked really harsh to my eyes. I don't know if the picture will show the difference, but to me it's a lot more comfortable and - warm!

Thanks so much for this info.. A big improvement! The galley is looking pretty squared away too . . .

PS did you compare the wattages of new and old re: consumption? Also, not sure what wattage your bulb is, but will check out the site when I am back home. Thanks.

No I didn't compare wattages. The lumens seem to be about the same.

Thanks, the full site page shows more detail than the mobile site. This warm white bulb draws 0.23 amps at 12v, is rated at 595 lumens, and specs out at 3200 on the Kelvin Color scale (FWIW -- Greek to me).

Elite Series Retrofit Bulb

They show other bulb colors vs. incandescent on this page, in case anyone else is interested. I am going to pull one bulb and check out my local suppliers.

The m4 site offers a 10% discount for 10+ of the same SKU.

Thanks again for posting this information. A big improvement, as I have the same aluminum interior.

OK I pried the lens off the ceiling puck light light, but how do you get the bulb itself out? Do you have to remove the two tiny screws, or is it a twist and pull down situation?

I see references on other threads to various videos but they don't seem to cover our lights, which take a longer bulb it seems? Our model years are close, so I am assuming we have the same ceiling lights. Your photo does not actually show a recessed ceiling puck light which is what I have.

Thanks.

They're a push and twist. The base is the equivalent of an automotive 1156 bulb.

The big guy is the stock bulb.

Thanks but we are talking about different fixtures it turns out. I have asked Dan from LED4RV for advice here:

Thanks for starting this ball rolling,

22-Footers

I purchased all my bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths etc for the bathroom and kitchen from the Johnathan Adler store precisely because they each have a built in hanging loop, centered, for drying. Their products are very well made and you can often find them on sale😘


Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

Major Tom,
Adding loops on the towels was something I have considered. Where do you actually hang the bath towels?

Hanging towels

I have two over the door hooks for the towels. I hang the wash cloth on the hinge of the mirror by the sink.
