I used a #15 and #12 photo filter, that's medium orange and ligh yellow. Anything in that region seems fine, doesn't filter too much light and cools it down enough so it's not that harsh blue.

A red filter almost blocked the light completely.

I'm looking for some yellow or orange wrapping celophane, which is a lot less expensive per square inch than photo filters!

Might also consider adding some good old fashion red LEDs. That might balance the spectrum and if on a different circuit could be a very effective night light set-up.

I just ordered 20 warm white LED bulbs from a source in a vendor off shore. These are a replacement for the 1156 bulbs in older units. I doing this as a test to see if they work. I will keep you posted. I should have them in the next week or so. The units are shown in the photo below. I like the omni direction. I will post photos on how this works.

The one in this picture (above) is straight off the side.
The one picture below sits a little better in the puck light.


Ckick here to see this chip.

Airstream's part number on this one is 15751W-09

www.LED4RV.com has free shipping on this light

What's the lumen output of the light below?

I've found that anything using the typical 5mm LED is pretty pathetic for light output

THe one I used from LEDTrailerLights.com - RV LED interior ceiling light 1141 1156 warm white
has a 252 lumen output, which is nearly identical to all the specs I found for an 1141 bulb - which was 255 lumens.

Do you prefer warm white to cool white?

I would prefer to get as close to incad as possible and with color temperature close.

Warm white is really the most desirable.... it's about the same color temp as incandescent.

A less expensive LED for the outside light, which is cool white, is this one:

We got our LED's from different sources over two years and got warm white for all but one fixture (that one is low lumens for a night light). I can't tell the difference from incandescent or halogen. However, there are cheapo LED's on the market and their color rendition may not be as good as the ones I bought.

LEDTrailerLights.com - 1157 and 1156 LED replacement bulb style

I think this is the same light for less.

similar, but far dimmer, and not nearly as wide angle as the one I posted. tried those, didn't like 'em.

The individual LEDs aren't nearly as wide angle style.

Not exactly sure what you mean Rogerthat, but I did buy wide angle LED's from Superbright and they work fine.
