Always good to save a buck or two.

The ceiling lamps in our Safari at Airstream were lower priced than I paid from Superbright—the display was for LED's—these are side pin G4's. I know it's unbelievable. It's a different configuration than the ones I have—fewer bulbs, but I don't know how bright they are or the quality.

'geezer, I had the same problem with the task or reading lamps. I removed the fixture from the ceiling to loosen the wires and pushed the reflector and the pin socket out of the housing and separated them. There are 2 small screws holding the socket to the fixture housing together; I had removed them and did not replace them. I could then push the bulb into the socket, push the assembly against the reflector, push the wires back into the ceiling, and put the whole thing together. I recall that if I disconnected the wires, I might have figured out a way to put the screws back in, but didn't do that. So the bulb and socket is loose in the fixture, but can't move much once the lens was replaced. Since the LED's aren't as hot as the halogens, this shouldn't cause any harm. I've traveled about 1,550 miles since and no problems. If I were more ambitious, I'd take the brighter LED's from the bedroom and put them over the dinette where we do most of the reading, and put the less bright ones in the bedroom.

For those who really want to change over all those G4 halogens I suggest this link for the best price:

I looked at the LED for the recessed ceiling lights at Airstream. They are $11.95 and quite bright. They have a slightly brighter one, but no price on it. No idea of the quality.

LED Display At JC

Sorry just too late to read this entire thread to see if this has been mentioned.

There is now a display at the factory that shows several of the current light fixtures. There are three sides. Front shows the OEM fixtures and bulbs, the other two sides the same fixtures with different types of LED's for replacement from the factory. Set-up includes switches so you can compare the different applications.

I will be going back to pick up the 'stream Friday will try to take a photo of the display.

Bright White vs Warm White

There seems to be a little confusion over the LED lights and the colors. Here is a picture of what they both look like. There are allot of differant colors but who is going to put a green light or a red light in their Airstream.


Here are what those two lights look like not installed.

Bright White

Warm White

The color produced is from how much current they send to the LED. The temperature is slightly warmer with the Bright white than the warm white but so little that it is hardly worth mentioning. Both produce far less then the Halogen. Waaaaaay less!!!!!!

The bright white has a slight blue tint to it and is suppose to be close to a true white. Some people like them better and some don't.

If you had a 12 in florescent light go out and you did not want to replace the Ballast and go with an LED replace you most likely would want to go with a warm white. Because it is very close to what the florescent light looks like.

Click here to see it on the Airstream Website.


I have seen a customer use Warm White in the living space and Bright white in closest and the overhead compartments of the CCD and looked very good.

The advantage of the LED is power consumption. If you camp where there are no hook ups or Wal-Mart parking lots these lights consume far less power and are allot easier on your battery.

If you are camping with hook ups, in the summer the lower heat produced by the LED will allow your AC to not have to work so hard to keep you cool. That can make a big difference on a very hot day when you’re not in the shade.

Dan,

Do you happen to know if the T-10 socket is what is used in the chandelier fixture over the dinette table in a 2005 Classic 30?

I know it is a wedge style automotive bulb, but I guess their may be different socket sizes for that style bulb. I am guessing that T-10 related to a particular socket size.

Thanks ........ Brian.

Brain,

Yes it is a T10. The only thing you need to be mindful of is the length. We have a 2004 here on the lot that has all the room you would need for the 13 LED T10.



Click here to see more details about the T-10

The above measurement in pink is what you need to be concerned about. The base of this light will stop at the end of the socket. That is how much room you will need for whatever light you get. For folks, other than Brain who asked the question ,the amount of space you have is important. If you only have room for a 9LED then that is what you need purchase. If you have room for a 13 LED light you may enjoy the extra light.

Dan

Thanks Dan - I think I understand. With our style chandelier however, it has glass shades that are open at the top, so I don't think there would be any height restriction for the LED bulb.

Only thing would be that if the LED bulb assembly were taller than the shade, it wouldn't look too good sticking up above the shade!

Is that what you mean?


Brian.

Photos of Factory Display

Here are the photos of the factory Display.

Stock Fixtures



LED's Group 1


LED's Group 2



Installed the Xtreme ceiling lights to replace the halogens. Asked about the warranty, 60 days from the factory or whatever additional the manufacturer allows. Hope I don't have to find out.
