LEDs in Your RV? It’s Easier Than You Think

You have probably made the transition from Halogen, CFL and Incandescent light bulbs to LED lights in your home, on your Christmas tree, or in your car. But have you thought about replacing the bulbs in your RV? Here are a few reasons why you should:

The energy and money you save using LED lights in your home extend in to your life on the road in your RV. There are a variety of LED bulbs available for use inside or outside your RV including replacements for the popular 1156, 1157 and 921 halogens you currently use. You can also easily add new task lighting to the kitchen or light up your outside awning for evening entertainment. Many models:

•                Use only 1.4- 3 watts

•                Will last 50,000+ hours

•                Give you an light output equal or greater than your current bulb

•                Have a light spread of 120 to 360 degrees

•                Operate with very low heat

•                Are Dimmable

•                Are variable voltage designed to use for RVs

Why You May Not Have Installed RV LED Lights

The most common hesitation is that most people don’t fully know what to expect in terms of light output, colour output or heat output. You may also fear that they may not be compatible with your RV. However LED bulbs can be easily swapped in for older Halogen or Incandescent bulbs in a similar fashion to replacing a light bulb.

Why You Should Install RV LED Lights

Energy consumption is a growing concern in today’s economy and is not always accessible. When you are using a generator for example, every kilowatt counts. This is where you can really benefit from LED lights.

You use an average of 80-90% less energy when you’ve got RV LED Lights  installed in your Recreational Vehicle and you will not feel the heat from the bulbs you currently use..

How to Switch to RV LED Lights

As for the actual installation or “retrofit” of the bulbs, you will find that’s the easiest part. LED lights just pop in and pop out. The biggest benefit of LED Lights is their lifespan is very long so you won’t have to replace them very often.
