Thank you LED's for RV's...

Got a great deal from Dan on 12 Led strips for the F-tubes⚡️.
I wanted them for conservation👍 but the DW hated the obnoxious bright white dot's...🥺
They can still be seen a tiny bit but my 🤐 are sealed.
A Compromise was in order...🥰

So you put the LED strips “behind” dead fluorescent tubes to diffuse the LED squares?

F-tube LED replacement

You do know that you can get LED tubes that mount in the existing fluorescent tombstones, with diffusers, right?

Bob, great to see you made progress. It is a pretty easy change out once you get your mind around it. Some folks have found some plug and play bulbs in LED but there is no power savings if the Ballast is still used.

Steve, the bulbs come out and stay out. The Ballast can stay in there but needs to be disconnection. Here is a video that shows how.

Been dealing with Dan@LED4RV for over 10 years. His stuff is great, and he does stand behind his products if there is a problem. Changed over all the incandescent lighting first in my 1994 AS LY diesel pusher, and then in my current '87 AS Excella. More than pleased!

Exactly why I didn't want to leave the ballast in and get the LED tubes...didn't make sense.🤔

Thanks again Dan..
