The factory saved themselves a few $ by cutting that corner.

I wouldn't do it LivLove. I can't stand the bright blue white light of the LEDs. So, I turn all that led stuff off and enjoy the warm glow of the hood lights on my 2012 as much as I can. I know hardly anyone will agree with me, but we don't boondock, have 2 A/CS in the 30 FC, so heat and battery doesn't matter. Am switching to under-counter incandescents when I find 12Vs I like. When we need to perform open heart surgery in the trailer, we can turn on the blast of LEDs imbedded through out the entire ceiling.

We replaced our range hood lights with warm white LEDs from LED4RV. They are very yellow,I think yellower than the originals

If your LEDs are too blue, do what photographers and theater stagehands do to soften their camera flashes and spotlights. Add a warming gel. This a piece of plastic these days— not a gel, but the name has stuck— that you can cut to fit behind the lens of your LED. They're available in all the colors of the rainbow and several in between. My guess is that this one: Amazon.com : Rosco Roscolux Bastard Amber, 20x24" Color Effects Lighting Filter : Photographic Lighting Filters : Camera & Photo might be the one best suited for your trailer, but if not, there are many similar shades that you might try. It's a lot cheaper than replacing all of your LEDs!

My 1999 Excella does not have lighting over the valances above the windows. Is that something you added or original equipment? If original, where is the on/off switch?
Thanks!

Thks protagonist, just ordered and took your advice on the color. I'll post how it works. Would just like to have the most commonly used lights changed.

I would have to say that when it comes to LEDs over food folks I talk too (and I talk to a bunch) seem to be happier with the slight blue of the 4500-6000 kTemp. Warm white bouncing off of a brown or almond back ground can do funny things.

I had a question about a particular bulb, so I emailed LED4RV. It took an entire four minutes for Dan to respond and answer my question. Bulbs ordered, happy customer.

They have been changed in recent years so it was probably just what the hood manufacturer provided. Our 2015 28' FC has LED bulbs in all locations including the stove hood.

Thks again protagonist. Works great. Color very close to hood halogens. Covered the single side of most used. Left others alone for now.

I took everyones advice and called Dan. What an excellent person to deal with. He was unsure which outside light I had, so he sent me both replacement models to insure I could get the job done in one fell swoop. Gonna mail him back the one I didn't use. As we both are here in NC, I got the bulbs the very next day. Dan is a real pleasure to work with. Top notch customer service.
Did I mention how much better it looks inside? We have the Ocean Breeze, so it's pretty bright in the cabin to begin with. The bright white really enhances that interior nicely. I was amazed at how I could not even hold my finger on the lens for more than ten seconds with the old lights. They generated ALOT of heat. Not anymore. Well worth the $ IMHO.
