While at the FROG Rally the CC tech gave me replacement led bulbs for my ceiling lights, they had to many on one switch and the switch would get hot( one melted) so there is less draw now. I got a total of 37 led lights and what a difference!!!!!!!

I swapped out all the ones inside our new trailer and with the radio on and all lights in the trailer on I was around 2.5 amps... Before with the radio on and 3 light fixtures (6 lamps) I was about 8.4 amps!! Kind of a big savings, especially if you camp and aren't plugged in (like we are)..

These are what I went with:

Those are only about 100 lumens. A standard bulb is 280+ lumens. I put ones like these (115 lumens) in our old trailer and it was too dark.

Don't fall for the ones that charge high shipping! I'm an Amazon prime member, so I don't pay for shipping.
Do you know how many lumens they are?

It says on the description - 288 lumens for cool white. I only buy from LED Wholesalers because they are so helpful.

Looks good. If you were at the 2013 international rally in Goshin one of the venders had a good supply of the LED's for sale. They did a seminar on LED lighting which was also good.

We had our first trip out with the LEDs, and as mentioned they are a bit dimmer than the factory incandescants.. Still bright enough to get ready for bed with and to brush your teeth..

I got an e mail from LED Wholesalers with all of the specs, but on most of the good lights, they list lumens. Cool white is always the brightest-think surgical suite-and warm white the dimmest.
I'm at work and class is about to begin, so I can't go into detail as I am getting ready for battle... LOL
