LED Bulbs

I have the fixture that came with Halogen bulbs and swapped them out for the G4 LED.

Purchased them on Amazon and just not lasting. Any suggestions on what the best ones are to purchase.

Thanks, Steve

I would look into replacing the fixture with a led one. 10.0 each. I get them through Tiara

There is a lot of difference in quality of LEDs. We replaced all the halogens in our '12 and never had a failure. But they were purchased thru a couple on the Montana Forum, but are no longer are involved. Lots of folks swear by M4 products.

True or false? This is what someone recommended on another forum, the replacement bulbs had to be rated for 12 to 24 volts, straight 12 volt will burn out when converter kicks in at 13+ volts. I don't know as I had the same luck you & wasn't going to keep buying high priced leds. We don't boondock so battery conservation wasn't an issue & I could buy a truck load of halogen bulbs for the price of a couple LEDs.

Led bulbs

I changed out all of ours to leds from m4 products.They make and sell some of the best lamps you can buy.They cost more but you get what you pay for.

We've owned our coach since March 2013 and have only lost one halogen lamp over the fridge area, none of the smaller ones in the slideouts. I changed all the main lamps in the bedroom just because of the halogen heat generation. I find it remarkable of 12, 000 miles of travel we've only had one halogen burn out, and that was over two years ago.

Bought most of mine on ebay

and had the same problem with them not lasting anywhere close to what they claimed. Apparently I was not alone on this issue. Last week I got check for $14.50 from the FTC settling a class action lawsuit filed against the company I bought them from.

Thanks, Steve

I have used LED's purchased from M4LED sinch 2014. I have only had one failure over the past 4 1/2 years with 4 months of use each year. I have replace nearly all of the halogens in our coach.

Here is a link:
G4 Double Pin Retrofit LED Lights

Usually, at the end of the year, they offer additional discount so I try to purchase at that time.

HERO-LED SG4-12T-WW Side Pin G4 LED Disc Halogen Replacement Bulb, 2.4W, 20-25W Equal, Warm White 3000K, 5-Pack(Not Dimmable)
Sold by: HERO-LED USA Product question? Ask Seller
$17.99

Replaced all ceiling halogen light bulbs with Hero LEDs purchased on Amazon in 2016. Good price and no failures, Was able to replace 10 watt halogen with 20 watt equivalent Hero LEDs in same fixture increasing lumen output. Note they are warm white so no florescent like appearance. The light looks just like the halogens.
