I have a 2007 Jayco Eagle Model 322FKS with Command Electronics tail lights style 003-81 and 003-81L.
Look here: Tail lights... During daylight hours on a sunny day they are difficult to see. I've noticed the LED lights on tractor trailers are easy to see.

Was thinking about upgrading them to L.E.D. tail lights. Command has an upgrage kit for $42 ( both tail lights)# K-0026. Supposedly they fit right inside the original red tail light lenses. Look here LED... and then click on the K-0026 Kit.

Anyone already done this conversion? Was wondering if you're happy with the results.

Happy trails,

Before I towed my trailer off of the lot in 2006 I had the dealer install the round LED tail lights. Much brighter, last longer and look good too.

Worked for me no problem.
I just copied it and entered it as an Internet address.

BTW, I made a slight error on my original message. I should have said that the K-0026 LED Kit from Command Electronics DOES include a new red lens. Because we are dealing with LED's the lens configuration is different.
Talked with Craig at Command and he said each light has 21 LED's in it. It's brighter than the standard incandescent light and draws less amperage.
I ordered the kit and will install it on our Jayco Eagle trailer.
Happy trails,

Hey Bill,

I just ordered them too for my Skyline Nomad - same taillight made by Command Electronics... Spoke with Kraig Whiting as well - nice guy - very helpful...

He also told me that they use a small incandescent bulb for the down light for the license plate which is required here in Illinois...

Should have them in a day or two as they are pretty close to me... When I get them installed I'll report back (with night time pictures) of the difference...

Hey Bill,

I received my lights today from Command Electronics and installed them over a several hour period so I could take pictures for comparison... I'm going to shrink the pics down to 320 pixel width so I can arrange them side by side...

Overall the install was a piece of cake and for $52 bucks direct to my door you can't beat it... They are SIGNIFICANTLY brighter than my OEM lights... Nice folks to business with... Fast courteous service from Kraig at Command...

Here's the photos - apologies for some fuzzy photos - it was difficult to hold the camera steady under low light conditions without the tripod and I was too lazy to go into the house and get it [emoticon]

I didn't hook up the truck so I'm not sure what part flashes but I'll find that out soon enough... What I really like about them is you can really see them in daylight conditions... With my dim OEM lights, I was always concerned that someone would not see my turn signal as I moved left or right... These LED's are bright even in daylight!!!

Les,
Looks great. Received mine on Friday but won't get them installed until I go out to the storage lot.
Glad to see we finally found a LED light that is a drop in replacement for the 81 series lights.

Happy trails,

You bet Bill - and THANKS to you I found out about them [emoticon] [emoticon] [emoticon]

I'm sure your installation will be as smooth as mine... I did not use the Scotch-Loks that shipped with the lights though - I don't like them - I made a direct splice...

There were also 2 Scotch-Loks that they used on the license plate light and I may go back in and remove that and make a direct splice there as well...

In any case, they look really good and you can see them in the daylight quite well and that's what I was after with a side benefit of having tail lights that will last a long time... IIRC, Kraig said they were good for at least 5 years...

I'll have to drop him an e-mail and ask about warranty - I didn't see anything about that in the instruction sheet - it's out in the TT and it's raining right now so I'll check that later...
