Pendant Lights

Has anyone had to replace a bulb in the pendant lights? Can't figure out if the bulbs are threaded or pun type to remove and replace.

NAPA auto parts will have them...forget the number. Not a common bulb due to the side pin orientation, so they cost a little more than tail light bulbs...I think mine were around $2.50 each. Wear gloves when pushing and turning old bulb to remove. The go in just like tail light bulbs, and have a very strong spring base so hard to remove.

I ordered 1076 bulbs from Amazon. Would have liked LED but I don't trust the reviews. I want a replacement that is just as bright with the same color but when you read the reviews, this is not easy to find.

Yes gently push and turn the bulb CCW. I bought one LED as a test subject and like it. Same lums and color as the incandescent bulb. Just ordered five more.

X2 on the LED replacements. I bought one from an RV dealer ($30+) and like it, so I ordered additional ones on eBay at about $5 each. I haven't had a problem with them in the last six months, after replacing incandescent bulbs every few weeks!

I just replaced all of the exterior bulbs on my TT with LED's (except the scare light, haven't got around to it yet). I have tail/brake/ turn bulbs the rear that are 300 lumens. I think the ones I replaced on my old TT were 500 lumens which is plenty bright. All my interior lamps were already LED's including the storage compartment lamps.
The marker lights had a T10 wedge base. You just want to make sure that they will fit under the lens cover so they shouldn't be more that 24mm in length. The ones I used were 16mm in length and were shorter than the incandescents I replaced. I paid less than $10 for 20 of them.

That's pretty cheap where did you get them? One thing is that they last so much longer. I put 200 lumens in my scare lights and they are bright. If I have a trailer right next to me I turn them off so it won't light there whole trailer up at night and disturb there sleep.

You think the RV dealer had a little mark-up there in the price? Was it the same bulb? Seems I always get the wrong ones and they end up looking like florescent lights, which I do not like.

Check item #30098880522 on Ebay, $9.99 for 20 of them. The listing expires Sunday. That is the LED style I used for the marker lights. You would normally need 11 bulbs for the marker lights so you will have spares. I figure if they don't last or I don't like them I haven't lost a lot of money. Just remember if they don't light when you plug them in just rotate it 180 degrees and reinstall as they have polarity. You can search around on Ebay and find the same style of bulb for even less. I always do a search for similar style products to get the cheapest price, but, I also look at their feedback.

It sounds like the pendent lamp are using a bayonet style bulb base. FYI there are 4 basic styles of bayonet base bulbs. 1. BA15S - this is a single contact base with pins that are horizontally opposed. 2. BAY15S - this is a single contact base with pins that are horizontally offset (not directly opposite). 3. BA15D - a dual contact base with pins horizontally opposed. 4. BAY15D - a dual contact base with pins that are horizontally offset. For color choose natural white which is very bright or warm white which is a little softer brightness. If you pick "cool" white it will have a slightly blue tint which may not be satisfactory in some cases. Don't be afraid to get them on Ebay rather than from a US dealer. The only difference will be the time it takes to receive them but at a cheaper price. Let's face it, they are all made in China.
As for other LED replacement bulbs, I helps to know what incandescent style (number) you are replacing. Quite a few different style bulb bases are used. You will have no less than 2 different base style bulbs on your interior lamps. Many of the sellers do not tell you the lumens (brightness) so if in doubt contact them and ask. I prefer at least 200 lumens for overhead lamps but if you get "natural" white it may be too bright. You may have to experiment a little. The number of LED's will not determine the brightness, it will be the type of LED used that determines that. Sometimes a 16 LED bulb will be much brighter than a 24LED bulb.
I'm not an expert on LED bulbs but by playing around you get can get a little smarter. I used to sell Infrared emitters and detectors for a US manufacturer that was heavily involved with military R&D (lasers) as well as laser speed guns and range finders.

That would be a "bayonet" style base but there are 4 versions of that base. A BA15S, pins straight across from each other, single contact. A BAY15S, pins across from each other but offset, single contact. BA15D, pins straight across from each other with dual contacts. A BAY15D, pins across from each other but offset, with dual contacts. DO NOT put a single contact bulb in a dual contact socket, it will short and blow your fuse.
