JDL,

What did you pay? As I recall I paid about $12.00 or so per "bulb".

Too much to completely retrofit the 30 or so bulbs in my CCD 28.

Thanks, Gerry

Cool

I paid 19.95 each.

I would suggest doing one or two of the large storge bins and try it.

I want to boondock so its worth it to me.

Just ordered four of the new larger array bulbs. I'll try them out in one of the overheads. I also ordered two of the 4-led type that I had before but with a rear pin for use in the swivel spots in the CCD. I'll let everyone know how it all works out. So far, I have really enjoyed having the LED lights. Even with the reduced lumens output, my wife and I have enjoyed them and the power savings is very noticeable when dry camping or boondocking. The bluish light kinda reminds me of moonlight and is very mellow. Combine with a few candles, and it's down right romantic.

Real curious on how bright the swivel spots are compared to the larger led arrays.

JDL,

Did you have to mod the light fixtures to fit the 21 LED array?

Nope. Just replace the bulb and plug them in.

I received four of the new LED lamps. Unfortunately, they arrived jsut in time for the cold weather, and I haven't spent any time observing them or even photographing them. Here are my initial impressions. They are much brighter than the original LED lamps. You will have not problem installing these as for use as task lighting. They also have a yellow filter. The light is a warm yellow, not too unlike the halogens and nothing like the blue I used to. I installed mine in the main gallery area, replace all four 10w halogen lights.

I'll try to get out and get some pictures today, if the wind ever stops. As it is, the trailer is practically buried in the snow.

Westfalia,

As an update, could you provide a link to the vendor and the type/cost of these new LEDs? Look forward to hearing about your opinion on these lights.

Thanks.

FWIW, they do have some interesting marine grade LED fixtures. I have enve bought anything other than the bulbs, but the LED rope light might have some merit!

I finally went out and spent some time under the lights. I like them! The light output is not the meager blue of the original LED lamps I originally installed. It is also 2/3 of the light output of the halogens, or at least this is my very unscientific opinion.

There is very little heat output, and what is output is very meager.

I have posted picture of these lights in my personal gallery, but here is one. Click on it to see the rest in my gallery.

I like them! I hope to get some (6) for my ceiling lights before camping season. Other areas to follow.

3 Watt LEDs

Has anyone tried these "superbright" or "ultra" LED bulbs? They are 3 watt single LED bulb replacements, said to be brighter than standard filament bulbs. They also have a 130 degree light emittance angle, so they should illuminate a nice broad area. They produce 190 lumens using 65 milliamps. Superbrightled.com has them for the $25 price, LEDLight.com has them for $50. Both the wedge and bayonette base types are available. I'm looking to do similar interior bulb replacement in my old Argosy which has the bayonette base bulbs. They do have the problem that they only work in fixtures which emit the light from the end of the bulb, like spot and flood type fixtures.

I'm guessing they are relatively new and the prices may come down some.

If this link doesn't work search for Luxeon bulbs on the LED bulb sites.

Is it the light over the table? Or in the compartment? If it is over the table it sure is a bright lamp.
Gallery is not working right now so I am anxious to see the other pictures.

Yes,

I have tried the
1156-LX3 Luxeon LED bulb. I have it as one of two LEDS in the standard RV light fixture. It does put out a lot of light.


The other LED is a 1156-PCB-W36 light LED Lamp (The flat one). Both are from superbright. Together they put out a lot of light. Most of the time all I need is the W36.
