LEDs

Do LEDs fit in any fixture? We bought some for our TT and they were super expensive so are thinking about removing them and installing them in our new FW. We do have the new bulbs that came with the new TT.

Any advice appreciated!

I suppose it depends on the 5er you bought. Our 2015 Rockwood Signature UtraLight built in May 2014 has LEDs everywhere except the range hood, table lamp between the recliners and the two outdoor floods. FR also did an excellent job picking a good warm-white colour temperature.

We are hoping for a FR Wildcat 293, maybe I should post on the Wildcat forum? Thanks for your advice!

everyone will see this no matter where you post this. I'm sure most people go to "todays posts" and not a specific category. Anyhow, I used these and love them

Actually, what I am trying to ask is: can I take these LEDs out of our TT and expect them to fit in our future FW?

Thanks!

I'm sure the answer is no. I'm sure the led's you bought were 'bulb' replacements and the fixtures for your new camper would be designed around the led.

Maybe you can, maybe you can't. Are the fixtures the same? Lots of different base styles. You won't know until you take the light cover off and examine the bulb. If you have the old filament bulbs put them back in your old TT and take your chances that you can use the LED's you took out. If you looked at the link Dave put up you can see all the different styles so it's pot luck.

Our campers all have basically the same 3 base light configuration....T10....1056....or G4. Just open the fixture and see what kind it takes. The biggest problem is getting the right brightness.
