the trouble with led (example G4 series) is there(decent ones) about 8-9$ each.I have 46 in my ceiling.I don't use my ceiling lights enough to justify $500 worth of bulbs to replace my existing ones which work fine

I put in about 45 G4's a year or two ago and paid about $1.00 per unit.  They were the cheapies from Hong Kong on eBay.  Still working fine.  They don't have the same circuitry as the expensive ones, but they work and you can buy a few spares and still save a ton of money.

Whether the cheaper bulbs work ok or not depends a lot of the quality of the power available where they are used. The better quality (and higher priced) bulbs have circuitry to compensate for low and high voltage, for lots of ac (alternating current) ripple in the 12vdc. Battery current is clean but often low as the battery discharges or other devices go on and off. When the RV is plugged to shore power, the converter produces the 12v and many of them provide very "dirty" power, especially the old Magnetec 63xx series and its competitors. High voltage can be as bad as low voltage too.

Outfits like Revolution and Ming distribute only the best quality and they back the product 100%. Others may be anywhere from crap to nearly as good.  I know the folks at rvledbulbs.com have tested a variety of off-label Chinese imports and they offer those that performed reasonable well as a lower priced alternative to the Revs and Mings. I've used a few with decent results. Your mileage may vary, but rest assured that rvledbulbs.com will back anything they sold.  I've been doing business with the parent company (ocalahitch.com) since 1996 and know them to be fair and reliable.

What would be best ones to have alot more light inside a 97 Bounder 32H motorhome. I have looked over several but not sure of ones I need. I want ones that really light up, but won't melt my lenses :) I have 1141 bulbs now....

Free shipping does NOT apply to Canadian residents.  However, with that said, service was impeccable, and prices are fair.  I am happy.

I know. I just figured a topic still labled 2013 should be updated every once and a while. I'm not PO'ed. Just a poke.   :)

Denmark:

Agreed, threads do die. The staff here are managing a BIG forum. They can't always keep up.

RVLed's did give me the discount in December/14 when I converted our current trailer. That was just over a month ago. Chances are good that they are still following through. Give them a call to confirm. However, even if they don't give you a discount, they are still a wonderful group of people to deal with.

Thanks Frank. I meant no harm. I still buy from them. Thought since this topic is highlighted, it would be helpful to newcomers to the site. As well as regulars.

The forum discount and other benefits are still available.

We made the this topic a "sticky" (the highlighting is part of that) so it always stays visible near the top of the topic list. Of course, a poke ("bump", in net jargon) also puts it on the Recent/Unread lists as well.

LED bulbs
« Reply #43 on: January 30, 2015, 12:09:02 PM »
I generally tend to shop at Amazon and recently bought a box of 10 led bulbs from them for my RV to replace the 1141 bulbs that came with the unit. I did this to reduce the load on the house battery when we are dry camping (which we do fairly frequently) but I don't really know how much of a difference there is between the normal incandescent bulbs and the LED bulbs. Does anyone have any figures?

I did not mean to hijack this thread so if I have done so, my apologies. I just thought this thread had transformed into an LED discussion so my question seemed appropriate.

In general, an LED uses about 10% of the amps of an incandescent bulb for a similar amount of light (lumens). For more on this and many other facts about LED lighting for Rvs, please see the LED lighting article I have placed in the RVForum Library.

thank you for the response. A 90% saving seems like it is well worth the cost of the LEDs, especially since my Class B is limited to only a single house battery and everything is electronic. If I lose the battery I also lose the refrigerator.

Hey Gary,
Anything new for 2016 we should know about? I'm about to make an order for the upcoming camping season.
