Specialty Light Bulb

I cross posted in Electronics forum.

I have a 2013 Forest RIver Sunseeker 3170 and one of the lights near the front TV entertainment center is burned out. I have a feeling you can't get these at home depot.

The bulbs have two pins in them.

Where do I order these?

Good morning. I had the same concern when my stove vent light went out on our 2017 3010. It was small, clear had a flat plug in glass base with two wires wrapped iver the end as connectors. I was ready to hit the auto and marine parts places to find this "rare" 12 volt bulb on my next day off. Before I had the chance, the wife came home with a package of 6 from Kroger. Blew me away. Hopefully yours is more common than you think. Also, Amazon is your friend. Good luck.

Sounds like mini halogen bulb. Available everywhere including Walmart and grocery store.

I think this is what the OP is referring to. Could be wrong.

That is it! I looked on Amazon, and I was finding a myriad of "wattage." I had no clue what "wattage" these bulbs were. Also, the ones I found online didn't have the "nipple" (sorry, that is what I call it!!!) at the tip top.


I tried 1000bulbs.com but they won't ship to PO Boxes, and where I am you can only GET mail in a PO Box, won't deliver to residence.

Thanks, but I'm spending the summer in a remote place, Home Depot is 90 miles away. (I don't tow a car) But now I know if I need more! Oh wait, I just checked your link, NOT SOLD IN STORES!!!!! Have to order.

By the way, the ones I ordered from Amazon came in, perfect fit, they worked. The prongs are a 1/4 inch apart, that's important.
