Gene, I have a 25' FB also. How do your leds compare to the original halogens? My wife found the cool whites too blue, and the warm whites too yellow and dull. What is your experience?

Rogerthat...how are those 252 lumen, 3.6 watt units for heat output?

I don't see much of a heat sink on them, and 3.6 watts seems like it would heat up inside an enclosed fixture - especially when there's four 'bulbs', such as a bathroom light fixture that needs lots of light...

1383 replacements?

The reading lamp above my bed uses 1383 bulbs (sometimes called elevator bulbs). Anyone have a good source for these? I'm seeing them for something like $50 which is just out of hand. Also, what range of total lumens should I be looking at?

1383 light bulbs are less than 4 bucks - try Google. Don't know about a LED replacement if that is what you're looking for.

Yep, LEDs. The 1383 is one of the big energy eaters in my camper so replacing it is highest on my list of bulbs to replace.

Warm whites are the ones we bought and they are fine with us. Color perception differs and women can see more colors than men. Different brands have different color rendition. The cheap ones are the worst. So what is ok with us may not be to others, or it just may be the brand. LED's are improving rapidly and as they become more popular, the prices go down.

Brightness also is changing. The first ones I ordered for the main part of the cabin aren't as bright as the ones I got from a different source this year for the bedroom. The bedroom ones are brighter than I wanted, but we don't use the ceiling lights in the bedroom very often—only to find something. The reading lamps are more important in that room. If the lamps are too bright, a rheostat can solve that. The box where the switch is for the kitchen/dining/living room would have to be opened and a rheostat wired into the system and mounted on the cabinet next to the switch. It helps if you have miniature hands and are triple jointed, but it can be done—someone who did that posted a picture and the rheostat had a rocker just like the OEM switches.

Rodney—I think 70-100 lumens is about right, but I'm not all that sure. People also see brightness differently—I can see in a dim room pretty well when others can't (though as I get older that's changing). So what would be bright enough for one person is not for another.

And Mexray, 252 lumens is very, very bright. But LED's do not put out as much heat as halogens or incandescent, so I think there are no worries about heat.

The Superbright website has a lot of info on it and about a gazillion different bulbs. Navigating isn't all that easy, but it can be done with some patience.

The best we have found is a light that puts out about 80% the amount of light as a 1383 at about 12% the power consumption. Anything we found that was the same amount of light was way too high in price and way too hot. It is about right for someone who wants to read and not disturb someone who wants to sleep, where as the 1383 was a bit much. For the most part the 1383 bulb was put in reading lights over the bed and the sofa.

Dan,

The bulb looked interesting and I was ready to order four, but $17.50 as the lowest shipping option just aint happening. The search goes on.

That bulb looks like an 1156 replacement. Has anyone tried a 1156 to see if it will work? As for those shipping charges at Out of Doors Mart you're right. Over 23 bucks for Priority Mail when 4 bulbs would easily fit in the smallest Flat Rate envelope - and I believe the rate for that is $4.80. If you haven't done so you might try calling OOD and see what they'll do for you. Bought my first AS there and they're good people to deal with.

Thank you for addressing the freight charges. We have so many differant parts on our site with respect to size that somethings will not go in the mail. So, we have UPS set as the cheapest way and if we can ship it a cheaper way we do and refund the overage. If someone were to order as many as 10 lights it would be around $5.00 That would be in the US Mail.

It works on all the parts we sell.

Dan
