LED Lights

For those of us that have older rigs that didn't come from the factory with LED lights, we've all discovered that replacing factory bulbs with LED's can be an expensive undertaking...

BUT!!!!!!!!

I've discovered something rather amazing - the factory ceiling lights with the 18" fluorescent bulbs can now be replaced without breaking the bank....

Of all places, Walmart is now carrying replacement 18" LED bulbs that simply replace the old bulbs.... No extra wiring required.... Simply remove the old fluorescent bulbs and put the new LED bulb in.... Stated life of bulbs is (are you ready for this) 50,000 hrs OR 44 yrs!!!!!!

Now for the kicker - $8.00 per bulb!!!!'m

They come in two flavors - soft white or daylight.... I tried them both and hated the soft white BUT love the daylight ones..... I replaced all fluorescent bulb and am more than pleased with the results....

Does anyone know how to remove the ceiling LED light covers? They are tight but not tight enough to keep the bugs out.

As the OP of this thread, I thought I'd give everyone an update.... Been on the road for two months, using 10 new bulbs every night and everything's working perfectly..... So I'm pleased with the switch - so far.....

The covers unscrew on our 2017 Berk XL. Some are tight. Use surgical gloves or rubber gloves to grip them.
