LED package doesn't have leds?

I just got a 2612 and one of the add-ons was the solar panel with interior LED package. The under cabinet lights are all LED, but all of the ceiling lights are not. Is this a mistake? Can somebody with one of the current models with the LED package check their trailer? I was thinking the whole interior was supposed to be LED.

Thank you,
John

Not sure which unit you have, but my 2014 Flagstaff 27RLWS came with all LED lighting except the orange outdoor light. They told me a reason for it, but I do not recall. Post more info about your unit/....

My 2013 2715 has the solar and LED package. Just like yours only the under cabinet lights are LED. They do put out good light though. And the solar panel is worth it's weight in gold.

It's not a mistake that's the way the trailer is. But for about $3.50 per bulb you can replace them with LED's and upgrade the batteries to two 6 volts and you will never run out if power.

My trailer has the LED lighting package. Know what that consists of? The lights up front used to hook up the trailer. They are LED. Other than that, everything is incandescent.

Not sure why they wouldn't make the exterior light LED, aside from weather issues. LED lights put out zero UV light, meaning that bugs are not attracted to them. CFL, incandescent and halogen all put out UV light. I replaced all the bulbs in the trailer with pretty good ones, which cut the power usage drastically. I measured that each of the T10 bulbs were using 25 watts. The LED bulbs put out fewer lumens (I measured with a light meter), but only use 1.5w. Yes, that's right, the incandescent bulb uses more than 16 times the energy the LED bulbs do. When boondocking, lights and furnace fan are the largest consumers of power. Now almost all the lights in the trailer equal one of the old bulbs, lol.

I also tested the furnace fan, and it used about 115w.

I list say it is mis leading , but $30 in led interior lights aren't worth arguing about. I must say, the solar panel and 160 gallon fresh water tank are by far the best upgrades on the market right now. These two features are what made me switch from eclipse to a forest river product.
