LED cabin lighting

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 322 that has the 20W halogen puck lights in the cabin. I have a total of 11 of the puck lights and beside that they eat 220 watts when you have them all turned on they get quite hot and heat up my cabin. So I went in search of LED replacements for them and found G4 9 LED bulbs that fit perfectly. They are not cheap ($16 a bulb/disk) but their output is very close to the halogen bulbs and they run much cooler! And best of all they eat 2.16 watts each for a total of 24 watts. In short I can run my lights for 9 hours for the same amount of juice that I used to burn for an hour.

 

If you are interested here is a link to what I bought. And if you have replaced yours already I would be interested to know what you used.

Can be purchased at Home Depot. These LED's are damp location rated also.

I got the same ones, What a difference! The halogens got way too hot. In fact, the previous owner burned two nasty holes in the v-berth cushions by keeping them up against the indirect cabin lights.
