These are cheap PWM dimmers ive been using for about 5 years. Comes with a remote control which is awesome. The light in the picture is in my trailer!! Was a quick test setup. You can see it hanging there by the wires. Being lazy i just left it and laugh how it hasnt failed yet.

Every LED can be dimmed with a cheap voltage regulator. More efficient way is dimming through pwm.


LED lamps that use ballast resistors to control the current will be dimmable with a voltage regulator (or PWM dimmer). Those that use some sort of an active driver circuit very often won't dim with a voltage regulator, and may not work with a PWM dimmer either; the driver circuit will adjust for the changing input power, exactly as it's designed to do.

I use the brighter led bulbs, 3000k on the ceiling and a warmer 2700k led bulbs on the wall sconces. That way I have bright lights when needed and softer lights the rest of the time.

Well if you want to buy good (But Expensive) LED's ECO-LED at most RV dealers are great, but 20 bucks a pop..

IF you buy from any one line source (closer to 2 bucks or less a pop) buy a minimum amount take notes, if you like 'em buy more if you don't cross out that vendor or lamp.

SuperBrightLeds Is I think the name of one on line vendor who gets decent reviews... I've not purchased from them.

I like the daylight lighting led fixtures
The bluish cool lighting, well IMO kinda sucks
The warm white, meant to simulate incandescent bulbs, is too yellow, not white enough, not bright enough, warm white use 1/2 brightness you normally like, if looking for Mood Lighting

You'll replace the CHEAP ones within a year. You'll get what you pay for. IMHO, eBay and Amazon are not the places to buy the China made products. Superbrightleds is highly recommended. You don't have to buy the most expensive, but stay away from the cheapo ****....Dennis

My chepo amazon ones are going strong 4 years later? Yes, some are better then others, check the reviews before buying. I also have a mix of the yellow light and the daylight ones. Daylight over the kitchen area, all else are the yellow ones. Makes a difference when cooking and looking for stuff. I got the ones where all the leds face the same direction ( like someone above posted), gives more light. The other ones shine the light in all directions. So they shoot light upwards into the fixture.

I replaced most of mine from etraier.com. I replaced complete light for about 16 dollars each. Soft light completely happy.
