Interior LED Lamp Upgrade

Has anyone converted their interior lamps to LED? If so how did they turn out & which did you use?

Very common mod on this forum.

As for me, I ordered bulbs from several Ebay sources in Bright White and Warm White. You can search Ebay for SMD 36-LED Interior Room Dome Door Car Lights.

I like the warm white light bulbs and only use the bright light LEDs with rarely-used lights. The 36's are just slightly brighter than the incandescent that came with the camper. The one drawback I can see with these Ebay LEDs is that the connectors are not the best. But the price is right .

Did you go with the retrofit style that fit into the base or the flat style that had a wire off it? I guess on the wire style you would splice it in?

Yep, that's the style I installed as well. Works great once you get them secured correctly. That linked thread touches on the install method.

Good luck!

You may not want to go overboard and replace them all Skier0277. Try 1-2 and see if you like the kind of light they put out. I find they emit to much white/blue light and makes the coach feel like Im living out of my garage.

A Caoch looks/feels much warmer with conventional incandescent bulbs IMO.
