LED dome fixtures

Greetings.

We noticed that the previous owner of our 2004 Windsport had installed an overhead LED fixture above the recliner - great white light output. Sooo, we figured: why not replace all of the overheads - and voilą!

These are Gold Stars Natural Whites - very easy to put up, and they sure do look good!

All I did was replace the bulbs in all of my fixtures...cost $16 for 20 LED replacement bulbs with higher light output and a heckuva lot less heat. The previous bulbs would generate so much heat they were discoloring the covers and you couldn't touch them if they were left on for any length of time. I'm very pleased with them even if they were "cheap".

That's cheap where did you get them for that price, I replaced some 1147s in my RV but have more to do.

Yep - and that's why I decided to replace the entire fixtures (@ $9 apiece, they didn't break the bank too badly). Didn't want the old yellow look: these new lens covers are crystal clear, and have a small central area that magnifies the light output, Plus, the fixtures themselves look sleeker, more streamlined than the old ones.

Let there be light !!

Mine hadn't had the time to discolor yet - so went the bulb replacement route. These are the ones I used for the pancake lights - rated for 12-24V - which is important as the RV system will normally be running over 12V. I choose Warm White.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EDFM5QU/
Currently pack of 10 for $18.88

A little stiff to insert (probably good - won't come loose) - need to support the connector when inserting and not the circuit board...
I have replaced 3 bulbs in 15+ months of use - so they aren't perfect... But with 13 double pancake and 2 single pancake lights in the coach interior - replacing all cost me $70 with 10+ bulbs to spare.
(I didn't replace the basement lights - as they are rarely on...)

MUCH cooler - especially the one pancake mounted vertically that definately didn't cool properly.

20 x Super Bright 4 8W T10 921 6000K White Car RV Wedge 24SMD LED Light Bulb 12V | eBay

This is the address where I got the bulbs. I use the 921 bulbs on my coach, and they were very hard to insert...very small and it was very cold out when I replaced them, but they work great. If they don't last but a few years I've still saved my domes from yellowing!
