Lighting 318BHS

I have had a few trailers in my lifetime but I did not have to use sunglasses in any of them until the 318BHS. Has anyone toned down the bright lighting by changing the interior bulbs? If so, what bulb number did you use.

Funny (I guess). Picking up my 318BHS on Saturday. I hope you are over stating the issue. We'll see.

That's what we did on our last fifth wheel. Fortunately the new Wildcat has switches to use one or both bulbs.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

The only light that is to bright is in the bath room at night there should be two switches to control one or two bulbs so you don't wake everyone in the bunk house.

I have replaced most of our lights with LED bulbs from Amazon. They are standard automotive bulbs.
