Replacing LED lights in 2018 Salem Cruise Lite

I have a brand new Salem. It, thankfully, came with LED lighting. But they are SO BRIGHT. I would like to change them to soft white LED lights. But, without removing the entire light, I can't seem to see a way to replace them.
Has anyone changed them out?
Right now I am using battery powered portable lights so I don't feel like I am being interogated.

I changed all the interior incandesent bulbs to LED in my 2014 Salen Hemisphere. I got them through Amazon. To get a warm color you need to order 2700 - 3000 kelvin bulbs.
I am no expert but the higher the # the colder / bluer the light color.

Thanks. The rig came with LED, they are just too bright. There appears to be no way, other than removing the entire fixture, to remove the LED's. They are a circular wafer type bulb.

superbrightleds.com is a great resource for led lights. I replaced the car bulb light they had under the range hood with one of their led lights so it would be bright. less wattage=less power consumption and a light that is 100 times brighter.

Take the cover off one of the lights and write down any numbers / manufacturer info you can find, then reference it on the web to see if the fixtures are DIMMABLE. If they are, you can buy a 12v dimmer switch and replace the standard toggle that came with your TT. You can also replace the lights that do not have the center mounted push button switches with some that do have that feature. Then you can turn off individual lights and get the light level down to where you want it.

What did I do? …. I did BOTH! Replaced all the overheads with dimmable lights that can also be turned on / off individually AND installed the dimmer switch.


While I was doing electrical, I installed a real loud siren. It is rigged onto a rocker I labeled as SCARE. I use that when I am in bear country and there is one poking around the campsites. Bears don't like sirens... neither do tenters until they see the bear running back into the woods..
