Turns out my memory isn't what I thought it was. Here are the two sizes I purchased.

http://m.ebay.ca/itm/291734675887
http://m.ebay.ca/itm/351658300150

Quality is decent, though I don't know if I would use them in an outside fixture. There are better bulbs but they come at a price. Overall they have improved my battery life because when the front kitchen/seating area is lit up there are 18 bulbs going.

Some people prefer the led panels like this link, I haven't tried them but I'm assuming they may throw off more light as the LEDs are all facing one direction.

https://www.amazon.ca/White-Light-Pa.../dp/B00CFFFYVS

I would maybe try buying enough bulbs or panels to do one or two of the fixtures to see if you like the look and go from there. I did that to figure out which hue looked better to me.

I've been doing the search on there and there are a million of them, and I can't seem to find the ones you mentioned.

Sorry if this is a pain. Thanks!

Mike if there are any left over I would be interested in a couple as one of my appears to have been melted and the second I would just like for backup.

I'm also interested in what your setup looks like.

Don't forget air extenders as well, which can be purchased on the same site.



The way these are fastened on to the wheel is the best system I have ever seen.



PM me about party size for our meet up, Also remember passports for everyone.



Cheers

I want to replace the lights soon with LED so that my coach batteries last longer.

Those shiny hubcaps are beautiful! I wish I had room in the budget for those!

PM'ing you now.

Argghhhh!
Just when I thought I finally had a healthy Airstream that I could actually go on trips with, I ran into mechanical issues again and got stranded by the side of the road again, getting towed AGAIN!

I was hoping to take it on a trip this weekend and was driving it in preparation for the trip.

All was going great, and then suddenly the radiator cap blew off, fluid splashed all around it and huge clouds of smoke and steam filled the cockpit and outside.

SO frustrating!!!!!!!!

If I had an Airstream trailer instead, it would be pulled by a modern, healthy, normal tow vehicle. *sigh*

I just had to vent.

...and apparently, so did my radiator.

And you were seriously considering driving her for 16+ hours straight, one way, this fall, at night. Baby steps grasshopper, baby steps.

I've said this so many times; There are many systems in our coaches, that laid dormant and unused for many years will break down, not immediately, but as they begin to be used again.

We will get together again Mark, no worries, but I'm glad you reconsidered....

Cheers
Tony

Bummer.

A radiator cap shouldn't just pop off. More than likely it was left loose and was able to rotate via road vibration to the point it could come off like it did.
