What type of porch bulb in a 2004 28ft CCD?

I left my AS in GA and will return later this month from FL. I forgot to pull the burned bulb out in the porch light over the door. I wanted to get a replacement bulb and take it back up with me. Does anybody know what the spec is on that bulb? Much appreciated!!

I don't have my books handy, but I would strongly suggest that you upgrade to an LED type device. I have heard many folks leave the light on and the plastic overheated and the lens needed to be replaced. I put and LED light in both my outside light and step light. If you boondock they use far less power....I think the bulbs cost between $3 and $6, but they last far longer, use far less power and won't cook the lens.

hey i was just reading about the LED's in the forum before i posted this. Funny cause this is the 2nd time ive replaced it in about 1 yr. I checked my manual (because I keep the original at home and a copy in the trailer). I didnt see the bulb spec anywhere. Thanks for the tip. I will buy one if somebody can tell me what type will work in my unit. Thanks silvertwinkie!

I don't recall the bulb number, but if you have the manual, it is in the manual under the list of replaceable parts.....

http://www.superbrightleds.com/ is where I got mine. There are a few options based on the bulb model. I didn't get as bright as one person who posted pics here did, but I was very pleased since the outside like was as bright as a beacon. Now it's acutally a warmer light and not as obnoxious...one can actually sit outdoors and not need sunglasses.

Don't use these as law, but I got the actual bulb and the other forum member got the base with a flat segment of LEDs. Here are a few pics that might help:

The incandescent bulb is number 1141. I've tried finding an amber bulb, tht color seems to reduce the number of flying bugs around it.

I don't know what type porch light you have on your trailer. My 2007 has a round 5" diameter light (picture attached). If that is your light the bulb supplied by Airstream is a #1156 (2.1 amps/26.9watts). The original bulb recently melted my plastic lens and I changed it out to a #1141 (1.44 amps/18.4 watts). I also tried a amber LED that I purchased from Auto Zone that was a replacement for the #1156 bulb. It was designed to project its light from the led cluster on the top of the bulb. As the top of the bulb in my porch light was not facing out you could hardely see the light. I'm currently using the #1141 bulb and it has enough light and less of a chance in melting the lens.

I think you might be interested in these. There is an amber led 1156 that has either 24 or 36 leds that might be what you are after.
https://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-...?product=OTHER

scroll down to the 1156-PCB-Axx Amber LED Lamp ones. Only draw back is the price! $7.49 or $9.99 for the 36 led one.

Wow great info everbody! I think you all might have pieced together an intersting solution that no one might have ever realized.
My bulb is sideways so the light would shine to the side of the fixture not resulting in much illumination (what 2dabeach said). If an 1156 will also fit (as 2dabeach mentioned) then I could utilize an amber (less bugs says overlander63) right angle 1156-A30-RA from superbrightleds.com (thanks RLS). Any chance anybody else has done this and is happy with the results?

KSTAMPA, I believe the one you are showing that has the sideways leds is meant for only short running times. I am using the flat ones and have a superbright one in my porch light. I needed the brightness so I could do some cooking outside at night. Look up my post on it. I also have one in the shower and the light under the bed.

Good to know. Thanks RLS. I did read your post actually before I posted this and again just now. My light is over the door,, different than yours. Do you think I can use dbl sided tape on the back of the LED to get it to shine in the right direction?

Yes, that is what I have used. So far, the tape is holding.

Kstampa,
You can use a 1141 or use a 67 or 67a (amber) bulb in the porch light. Ours, like yours, has the bulb sideways. A 67 puts out enough light for us to find our step without being bright.
