Led light

I was going to change my lights in 2013 Coachman Concord to Leds. I wanted to know which LEDs are being used in new coaches whether it is the warm white, cool white or natural light. Thanks in advance

Cool white. You have to try and see how your interior color reacts with cool white or warm.also you have to find the lumen out put is . output is the most inportant thing.

Just a heads up for when you do install the LED's. Depending on the type of bulb that you already have, the positive and negative terminals may be interchangeable (i.e., you can put the bulb in either way). With LED's, there is always a positive and a negative. If the bulb doesn't light when installed, simply turn it around. Also, best place I found for replacement bulbs is

When I switched over to LED units in our Pursuit I purchased most of them on E-bay. Picked up some warm white and bright white. Found the warm white to be good over the bed and bright white in the kitchen area and were the wife works on her crafts, or reads a book.

Current draw is so little that the fan on the converter never kicks in, when all the lights are on.

This is not correct. It is only true of the cheaper/older LED bulbs. The "better" LED bulbs have a small additional circuit that allows them to be installed either way. These bulbs are usually listed as "AC/DC". These AC/DC bulbs also usually have voltage regulation built in and will be listed as working on a wider voltage range (eg. "10v to 20v" vs "12v only").

Prices for LED bulbs for the home are plummeting. It will be nice to see that happen with the automotive ones too.

Most all LED modules use a high freq drive circuit to drive the chips. Some of the very inexpensive Chinese units use very RF noisy drive circuits that when on will kill your TV and Radio reception. If you are planning on ordering a number or LED modules, I recommend using ones that have been used by forum members with success or buying one or two and trying them before ordering 20. Also after installing a module, check the temp after it has been on for a while. The cheap driver circuits can overheat and damage the fixture.
