LED Conversion on my Classic 25fb

I've converted my overhead fluorescent, reading, chandelier, shower and storage lights over to LED.

I got the tip for converting the fluorescent lights from this YouTube video.

I ordered the LED roll and connectors from Amazon.
You cut the LED strips to length then press on the connector. You cut the power lines from the ballast as its not needed. The LED strips have a stick on backing. You can actually double up on the LED strips so there are two on each side of the overhead fixture but I've only used on. I've got extra connectors to add additional. I haven't been out camping since the conversion but they seem to be as bright as the fluorescent tubes. The sticky backing is my only concern. I've been back to the trailer in storage a couple of times since the install and some on the strips have lost contact but since pressing on them again with a towel they seem to be holding better. Time will tell. I may have to find another adhesive to secure the strips better if they keep coming loose.

The reading spot lights were converted using G4 12LED and 9 LED backspin replacements. They seem to work OK with the dimmers on these fixtures. Time will tell. Typically these lights are always left on full bright anyway. I replaced the outside scare light with and LED replacement bulb including the lens. My old lens had warped from the heat of the incandescent bulb.
They were purchase from LED4RV.com.

The chandelier, stove top vent light, shower light and storage lights were replaced by 24LED replacement from ledtrailerlights.com. The chandelier and stove vent lights use the 912/911 type LEDs while the shower light and storage light use the
1141 base. All lights were order warm vs cool.

The only incandescent light left is the wardrobe light.

Here are a few photos after the install.
