We are very happy with the quantity of light it produces.

Is that # for a 9 LED light, I ordered the same # with the 24 LED option........I tink, That site takes some time getting used toooo

Has anyone tried the wedge style LED replacements that can be used in the chandelier fixture over the dinette? (I mean the LED's now available from the Airstream store)

Same question with the replacement LED's now offered by AS to install in the ceiling fluorescent fixtures?


I have already changed the reading lights at both ends of the trailer using LED's I bought from Superbright and would like to go further until I have pretty much all interior lights converted to LED, but before spending the $$, I'm just wondering if the items I mention above from AS are bright enough, and also if they are warm white rather than the bluish cold white.

What I have used so far are warm white so I'd like to stick with that colour temperature.


Appreciate any comment ....... Brian.

Hi Bob,

(For our stove hood light) we ordered SuperBright light #T10-PCB-WHP9, Warm-white, which comes with 9 LEDs attached to a circuit board with two wires that attach to a base which fits into the original socket of our stove light. The circuit board is attached to the inside top of the hood (and as Larry mentioned: Be sure to clean the inner top, metal surface of the light compartment, which might have some oil on it, so that the 3M double back adhesive mounting tape adheres.)

If you ordered one with 24 LEDs is was probably #T10-PCB-Wxx (which will probably work also).

The Superbrightled.com site is extensive, but if you click on this link to SuperBright and scroll down the page, you will find all of the specific lights that we have refered to in previous postings.

For example: for replacing those hot halogen reading lights see this post.
To see what our interior indoor lighting looks like, click here.
To see how to replace the overhead halogen lights, click here.

One benefit of changing to LEDs is that they use less energy, last longer, & run cooler.
And now that they are available in warm-white, they put out a more pleasing light.

... The difference being that the T10-PCB-WHP9 (as noted on the superbirght site) has high power LEDs compared to the T10-PCB-Wxx, so it gives out more lumens, which is probably why it is more expensive, but we are happy with it!

Has anyone replaced the bulb in the shower with LED? I looked at the superbrights web site and do not find anything that fits that socket. The bulb is a #1141.

Look for #1156. It's the same as an 1141. Superbrightled.

All the 1141 bulbs can be replaced. In our Safari I replaced 1141's in the bathroom, over the kitchen counter, over the dinette table, and in the shower.

It's been a while, but I did track it down through the 1156 number.

Mixing lights on the same circuit?

I don't think this has been covered...does anybody have any info on mixing lights on the same circuit? I plan on converting however I am hesitant to purchase seven LED's to replace all seven halogen in the recessed ceiling lights before I know what to expect. Is it OK to put (say) two LED's with the halogens or should I unplug the other five halogens and leave the light sockets empty while I experiment? I don't want to burn anything out or pop fuses.

Thanks in advance.

Randy

Hi Randy,

LEDs draw substantially less current than halogens, so if the circuit can handle 7 halogens, then it can handle any other combination of halogens and LEDs you'd like to use.

Feel free to experiment away!

Mixing LED and halogens on the same circuit is no problem at all. In fact if a single halogen light is wanted for task purposes in one area, by all means go for it.

I will say that cool blue LEDs of the same wattage are brighter, so we ended up with cool blue in under cabinet lights but warm white for all overhead lamps.

Mixing LED's and halogens is no different than having lamps with 40 watt, 60 watt and 75 watt bulbs, some of them incandescent and some compact fluorescent, on the same circuit in your house. All the wiring cares about is that you don't overload the circuit.

What a difference

After replacing the majority of my incandescent bulbs with LEDs, I must say there is a noticable improvement in battery life while boondocking. We spent 3 nights boondocking this past weekend and still had significant life left in the batteries at the end of the trip. No more burning candles to save the batteries!

Thanks silverleeper and crawfordgene for the cross reference on the 1141/1156 bulbs.

Do they make any G4 LED bulbs in colors, like orange, green or blue?
