My thoughts are "Do not replace any of your existing lights if they have switches." Just add these along side. Switch on only the lights you need. If connected to shore power use the original lights for there extra light. When you are doing what we do best... boondocking... use the LEDs all of the time.
They have 10,000 hours of expected life and 10 years I believe. I have already used mine for a year.
I could find them at "marine stores" most of the time but had to make long trips.
I phoned Randy at bestconverter.com and asked him to carry them. He was extra helpful when I was putting in out TriMetric... now we have a source.
While some will fuss about the prices... remember these have built in switches, a nice housing, and you don't have to experiment any longer! Easy to install, easy to use, and very easy on the batteries!
You have just enough time to get your special one a few for Valentines Day.
I'll post more pictures later of other sucessful installations that I've recently done.
Very impressive, and thanks for posting this. Just yesterday I ordered 2 Group 27 Lifeline AGM batteries, but this may be a more efficient solution. Don't buy more power, just use less. As they say in the Guinness commercials "Brilliant"!!!!!!!!!!!

Sleepy- you have been holding out on us- great job! I guess that you wanted to be able to validate your install- and we all know that you use your TC. Any guess how many hours you have on the LED's at this time? Do you have enough light to read?
