LEDs for Rockwood 128S

Does anybody know what type LED I need for my 2014 Rockwood 128s? The lights that came with this are too bright.

My wife feels the same way about the lights on our 2016 A212HW. I'm toying with the idea of fashioning a shade/translucent cover of some kind.

My 2015 A128S lights were way too bright and industrial white. I replaced them with warm white LED RV lights on eBay, which gives the trailer a much warmer and cozier look and feel.

Take a look...

Search for this: 500mw Interrogation Laser Replacement

It's a little bit of warranty-voiding, but we really like it over the bed. We also hang a small LED light from the vent fan opener knob for when I make coffee in the morning. Keeps the glare out of DW's eyes.

This might help you decide. Lumens are for brighness and Kelvin is color of Leds. Both these should be stated on the packaging. There should be a graph on the back showing Kelvin and the low end is around 2700 (soft white) to 6400 for Bright grow lights.





Over the last century, we've been trained to think about light purely in terms of wattages, so it isn't surprising that most people really have no idea of how many lumens they actually need in a bulb. Until you form an idea of how bright is bright enough for your tastes, stick with these figures:
Replacing a 40W bulb: look for at least 450 lumens
Replacing a 60W bulb: look for at least 800 lumens
Replacing a 75W bulb: look for at least 1,100 lumens
Replacing a 100W bulb: look for at least 1,600 lumens
A yellow, low-color-temperature bulb compared with one with a bluish, high color temperature. Ry Crist/CNET Color temperature

After lumens, the next concept you'll want to be sure to understand is color temperature. Measured on the Kelvin scale, color temperature isn't really a measure of heat. Instead, it's a measure of the color that a light source produces, ranging from yellow on the low end of the scale to bluish on the high end, with whitish light in the middle. An easy way to keep track of color temperature is to think of a flame: it starts out yellow and orange, but when it gets really hot, it turns blue.

I ended up popping the light cover off and putting a light coat of flat white spray paint on it. Go lightly as you can easily add more light coats of paint later. We're happy with the results. I should have taken before/after photos.

Good Idea

I might try that on the one over the dinette. I wonder if I got a warm color, maybe light orange or yellow...

The krylon flat white "warmed" up the light considerably.

I have a 2014 a122s.. I agree.. most of the time the ceiling LEDs are too bright. But then other times I like the brightness. ...like when I'm cleaning or doing some kind of work inside the camper. So I didn't want to replace them. I bought a small table lamp to put on the microwave cabinet top. I use the cabinet as a nightstand... so a 40 or 60 watt bulb, in the lamp, is just right.
