LED
Most places sell replacements for the old ones that are LED, No heat, low battery draw. I have all LED in my MH now. Love them.

Do your research in this forum as there has been much discussion on LED's. When you have decided, buy them on ebay, much cheaper.

Get rid of those bulbs and switch to LED's. Use a LED with a T10 (?) wedge base. Get a replacement that has at least 200 lumens, more is better. Also get a warm light color LED. Cool whites have a blue tint. OOP's that one may not be a T10 wedge base. If it just has two wires in the base it is a little different, I don't remember what that bulb base is called. Some of the LED's have an adapter lead to fit any bulb base you have. Look around on Ebay for a replacement. Do comparison shopping as the same style LED may have a quite a spread in price. They aren't expensive, could be anywhere from .75 to 2.00 each depending on quantity. My TT is a 2014 model and has all LED interior lights already in it. I am replacing all the exterior ones with LED's now.
