HOW to buy RV Interior Light?
Step #1: First, Choose The Correct LED RV Lights For Your Interior:
Examine the base of your bulb. Some original bulbs will single filaments while others will have a pin. Examine your current bulb and use a simple conversion chart to decide which LED light is right for your rig.
Be sure to take note of the number on the bulb or on the light fixture.
Step #2: Second, Choose The Right Color For You:
Believe it or not, light varies in color and this variation can affect your RV interior. In this chart you can see how the light spectrum varies. For simplification let’s divide your choices into three colors. You can choose natural light, cool light or warm light.
Natural light feels like sunlight. It is a combination most like walking in the sun.
Cool light is oftentimes the brightest light and appears the most white.
Warm light offers a gentle “blush” and provides a traditional interior color.
Step #3: Third, Choose Quality Components:
All LED bulbs are not created equal so reading product reviews and speaking to LED providers is an important step. While you can buy LED lights on sites like Ebay and Overstock, you may not always know what you are getting. Buyer Beware!
Step #4: Finally, Ask Some Questions:
- Was this light designed specifically for RV use?
- Is it rated with the correct voltage for RV use? (usually 10-30)
- Does the light use aluminum heat sinks for longer RV life?
Taking the time to talk to an LED RV light expert can help you make the correct decision the first time around. Don’t skimp on the research. You don’t want to buy bulbs all the time (that’s the point right?) so do the research now and find the right bulb for your current fixtures.
