Anyone that has changed out the Halogen bulbs with the LED, what LED bulb did you use in the Spot Lights? I picked up a couple with the pins on the Back but the pins were too short and would not work.
Give me the Link to the Bulbs and if you know the exact language of how they are classified, I would appreciate any help. Thanks Marvin

Hello, I was just checking out switching out the bulbs in my '97 Safari. They loaded up the coach with an assortment of bulbs, 5 different kinds is what I've found.
Switching to LED's is expensive to do them all at once. So far the best site I've found to have most of the equal LED bulb is a site; www.jirahled.com .. I hope this helps you out, and read carefully to make sure you get the bulb you need. Bruce.

All kinds of G4s on Ebay. Not sure which type you need but here's the most expensive at $10. Pins are longer than they look as this bulb is fairly long and very bright. Here's one of the cheapest at $1.56. These pins look long enough at $3.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Check a Batteries Plus store if you have one near by. They have lots of unusual and difficult to find bulbs.

Start in the top right corner - select bulbs and follow prompts.

I think I'm using the 18led version in my truck camper. It's been awhile. Power draw from all five was 7.91amps. It's now .91amps for all 5 lights at the same time.

Be careful with claims of what "Warm White" means. The site mentioned above calls "WARM WHITE AT 4500K". This is not true. Warm White is in the 3000-3500K range. Cool White is in the 4100-5000K range. If you are expecting a 4500K lamp to look similar to the incandescent you replaced it with, you are going to be disappointed. 4500K is very white, not warm color. The incandescent lamps in RV's are in the 3,000K range and that is a big difference from 4500K.

I saw some at Home Depot the other day. They had a display showing what each type of bulb,like warm white, looked when it was lit.
