lower wattage halogen

Since using our new CCD Bambi the 10 watt halogen bulbs in the recessed light fixtures seemed too bright most of the time. From previous posts we gathered that other people felt the same way and were looking for lower wattage bulbs.
We just found 5 watt G-4 bulbs at IKEA, they work great! A 2-pack sells for $4.99.

Good find! I have been meaning to replace many of the 10 watt bulbs with 5 watts. I have already converted a few to LED, but to do the entire trailer would be too costly.

Are you satisfied with the result?

Westfalia,

Replaced 10 of the 10Watt with 5Watt bulbs. On first test it still was bright but a noticable change. Plan on getting more for remaining fixtures. Considering a dimmer but don't want to deface any of the interior, haven't looked at the switches closely.
