I see this is your first post, welcome to the Redwood Forum.
There are a lot of great people here and great information.

As far as I know, there is not a "Parts Manual" for Redwood RVs.

I have not had to replace any of the LED interior lights yet, so no help here.
I am sure my time will come when I also will need this info.

You may need to ask the Dealer about those LEDs. I have not seen that type before. They are a fixture rather than just a bulb.

The LED lights in our 2014 Redwood are imported from China by Wespac International.
Our Ceiling LED Lights are Model No. RVCOBBF4-008
Below is the only link I can find to them.
I have been unable to find a retail source for these light fixtures.

There is no manual (other than a general RV manual) for Redwood.

If your lamp fixture is sized for "G4" type lamps which is what they were prior to LED lamps (when halogen lamps were used), you can use M4 Products as an LED source. Try the following link: https://www.m4products.com/

Hope this helps.

I now understand why that one fella was so frustrated when his factory lights would fail (can't remember who it was), one after the other. I had no idea they were that hard to find. Kind of glad now I can just add LED bulbs to my old style.

Yep AA, I thought they would be similar to the bulbs in our Jayco Pinnacle.

I replaced 39 Halogen bulbs in our Pinnacle with the G4 Type LEDs and was very happy with them.

As far as the new style LED lamps, I have heard the same thing about other RV manufacturers using LED Lamp Fixtures where the bulb is not replaceable and hard to find, so its not just Redwood.

I sent a email to the Manufacturers website last night asking if there was a US distributor for their product that replacements could be obtained from.

So the new style LED lights are a one piece non serviceable unit?

The overhead lights are made by ITC. Here is the link to their web site:

http://itc-rv.com/products/overhead-lighting

You can buy them on Amazon.

Wow, that's not as bad of a price as I though considering the M4 brighter bulbs are 12.99 each. Amazon has these for 15.99 prime.

It does not appear to be serviceable.

While the ITC is a similar light, I do not think that is the same light Redwood used in our 2014 FL.

LED is soldiered on to wires.

I wonder how the light output is versus the older incandescent lights?

Hoping I can see some at the show this weekend. I've never actually seen the LEDs in a working trailer.

I have all LED in our trailer and would compare the light equivalent to an 80 watt bulb. I had replaced all the fixtures that had the old style 12v 2 bulb fixture to the same size LED fixtures and the we're like a 60 watt bulb these new round LED lights are very good.

We've replaced two of the led fixtures in our 2014 36RL so far. We've done some exploring to locate the parts and have come up with the following information.

Redwood appears to have changed manufacturers for these lights. The replacements were made by a different manufacturer.
Redwood does not replace bulbs under the warranty, but have replaced both our fixtures under warranty since they are not bulbs. We have two year warranty for the entire 5er.

I had to go through the dealer to get them ordered (probably to validate the purchase date). They were no charge from Redwood and took about 30 minutes to install both including getting the tools out.

I had one of the smaller ones over the cooktop and one of the larger ones in the bedroom fail. Both turned yellow for a few days prior to failure, then went out.

The yellow disk in the center of the fixture is referred to as a chip on board. It is not replaceable (per the manufacturer). The metal fixture contains a resister. The disk is designed to work on about 4 volts. The resister reduces the 12 volt line so the light can work properly and is matched to a particular manufactring run.

Some Camping World stores now carry them. They cost about $24 there. I have not seen them in their catalogs yet, but expect them to show up soon.

Keep in mind that different manufacturers produce different light output. Some of the units are more yellow than the ones originally installed by Redwood.
The ones we were shipped have a slightly different color but it is hardly noticeable. Some are very yellow.

Hope that helps.

Glad we have the old halogen bulbs, the replacement LED's are much less expensive and easier to replace.
