LED lite TV interference

We have replaced most of our light bulbs with LED lights. we found out that some of the lights interfere with the TV signal over the air. It is not every single bulb that causes the problem tho. It usually only causes a problem if the signal is weaker than normal. this is on Digital TV only. We had heard that they can be a problem. We just watch witch lites we have on now and it is no problem, we really like the light that comes from the LED's we bought the warm white color as it was closer to normal lighting.

Doing another round of polling... please voice your opinions on LEDs lights as a factory installed option vs. aftermarket. Will it be a factor in your next RV purchase?
How important is it?

If I ever sell my Flagstaff; the LED pads are coming with me if our new one does not have them.

Having said that; it would have to be a serious problem with the camper to switch to a new one. After 3 years of constant modification, it is "almost" perfect.

LED's

We replaced all of our incandescent lights with LED's last winter. we bought the warm white bulbs and really enjoy the light we get off those. I recommend that Forest River look hard at replacing all the lighting in the Sterling with LED's to save on energy and heat. Once enough manufacturers start doing that the price will come down on the fixtures.

It's an available "write-in" option now! Ask your Wildcat dealer for more info...

LEDs in a new trailer would be a BIG plus for me. Low heat, low power consumption, long life.

I have switched all my bulbs to LEDs, well inside at least. I was able to get some bulbs with a warmer glow from a vendor on eBay.

Outside, I did the marker lights, as these are available for not too much money. Also did the porch light. I also install a stick-on LED strip on the awning tube. Love it.

I may replace my tail lights with new 'designed for LEDs' eventually, but they're still to expensive at this point.

What are the different advantages to upgrading the outside running lights other than they may be brighter. I replaced all my inside lights and the porch light with LEDs but since the running lights are only on while under tow are are powered by the TV I'm trying to find the justification to spend the money replacing them.

Thanks

I would definately go with LEDs. Power saving and heat saving. More lighting configuration options, fit in tighter places other lights wouldn't, longer lasting, and a what wow factor too!
