My Vibe 308BHS LED Taillight upgrade

So I upgraded my taillights tonLED lights purchased from Amazon for $49pr. So far they are great. I need to clean up the old silicone but other than that, installation was all of 30mins

Nice install,agree 100% that RV's should come Standard with (LED Taillights)! So the (Other Guy) can see when you are going to Stop or Change Lanes! Youroo!!

Very nice upgrade and a great video. As kind of a question a little off topic I see you have a cover for your bumper mounted grill. Could you tell me where you got it?

Very nice. I think this is the way to go for led. I have heard just doing bulbs is not as good since the reflectors are made for incandesant and not led so you do not get the best benefits.

Iron, wondering if you can share the Amazon part number with the Forum. I like yours and would like to duplicate. Thanks ...

No good in snow and ice as they don't get warm like the factory ones when they get warm they will keep the ice off, a lot of truckers found this out. So just stay in the warm area's of the country.

Our RV is Tucked In for the winter,no worry about snow & Ice! Now our Snowmobile trailer has Both Types of Lights on all 4 sides,under certain conditions ALL are covered going down the Road in the Winter Ice & Snow! At fuel stops we Clean the lights off,by the way BIG Rigs Rear lights have the SAME issues! Youroo!!

Led tail lights

You will love them, especially useful for people behind you knowing you are stopping or turning.
