For those of you who have already changed over to LEDs, have you experienced any problems with quick flashing lights or with your transmission?
I got the following from a forum member and I wanted to see what your experiences have been:
I got this from a fellow forum member and wanted to get your take on it:
Just a reminder of one odd thing a mechanic buddy made me aware if on my last RV, which was a Ford F53 chassis. Not sure if it holds true for the Chevy or not but bears checking. Don't trust my terminology 100%, but the gist of it is that the torque converter unlocks based on the current draw from the brake lights when you step on the pedal. The LED bulbs don't draw enough power to cause it to unlock, resulting in transmission damage. Simple solution is just to wire an incandescent bulb somewhere in the circuit and wrap it with electrical tape so you don't have to see the light from it. This gets the current draw you need. I'd rather cry wolf on this than see you damage your rig. Sure surprised me when I heard it. Good luck!
I posted the same on the Forester thread and Josh Cavitt responded that they haven't seen any issues and are installing LEDs on the new models. http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...532#post989532
