Is Halogen to LED possible in 2005 25' Intl CCD ?

I see some earlier threads but nothing on point. Anyone find a direct replacement for the hot running halogens that drain the batteries? I figure any plug-in replacment LED's will be expensive but I'd like to just replace the halogens as they burn out.

Halogens replace with C9WW or C12WW - assuming you want warm white which is most like halogen light source.

You can use lower wattage halogen bulbs or replace with LEDs from various vendors on the internet. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it a 20 watt G4 bulb that is currently in his trailer? If so, here is just one source I Googled right off the bat. G4 LED Replacement Bulb Globes Lamps Halogen Light Bulbs Lighting

Do a Google search for LED rv bulbs and you will see a number of vendors. LED prices are going down since I changed out all my clearance lights and those light fixtures used most often in my trailer.

We changed out all of our internal halogen bulbs for LEDs with the exception of the range vent hood (couldn't figure out how to open the cover without breaking it ). Really glad we made the conversion, less power consumption and heat generation. DW says the warm white looks a bit green to her, but I don't notice it S much as the blue tint of the bright white. We went with the 9 LED warm white because the 12 LED ones seemed to generate too much light.

Another vote for LEF4RV. We swtahced out the only 4 halogens (reading lights) and the LED's have been great.

Is there any way you can take a picture of that hood range and post it(the underside where the light goes)? This is the second time I have heard someone say that, and I'm thinking it is a design I'm not familiar with.

Dan,
I will take a pic and post when we get back from our trip. We are staying at the new State Park CG in Laguna Beach (Crystal Cove SP El Moro). Great location with 4 million dollar ocean views from each campsite.

I replaced all of the halogen and tungsten bulbs in the spots that we use. I didn't replace the ones in the closet, bathroom, storage compartment, etc. The ones that really make the difference are the main living area and the over the table light. As I mostly do dry camping, I have noticed that it surprisingly uses a lot less power from the batteries.

Good color rendition and quality are to some degree a function of price. We got ours from Superbright: LED Lights & Accessories - SUPER BRIGHT LEDS Their website is confusing and very extensive, but eventually you'll find what you are looking for.

Color is good, all still working. They hardly change voltage when turned on. We replaced all the lights with the exception of the wardrobe light and the step light. Of the 4 bulbs in the bathroom, we replaced 2 and don't use the other original 2. It was a little difficult to install some of the reading lamp bulbs because the 2 contacts were too long, but I managed by taking out some screws and letting them float inside the fixture.

The halogen ceiling lights were too bright, so I got some LED's that weren't so bright. You can usually dim LED's and wire in a dimmer to the switch if you want to vary brightness. You need the numbers of the bulbs you are replacing to find out the equivalent—halogens use prongs and incandescents (probably #1041) have small bayonets.

When I had my 34' Excella I switched out every single light for an equivalent LED and found that my batteries laster FAR, FAR, FAR longer! Yes, they cost a fair amount when I purchased them over a year ago but those costs have come down, they last almost forever and again, my batteries saw a significant drop in draw. Also, when I sold my trailer the new owners were ecstatic about the improvement!

So, replace all of your lights and you won't be sorry! I'm preparing now to switch out all the lights in my moho just because I know how much SAFER they are as well... that's something many people don't even think about! The heat produced by an LED light is almost non-existent so the possibility of a light causing a fire by heat transmission (something touching a HOT bulb) or heat draw (old wires igniting) is almost impossible.

GO LED!
