Default Floor Lighting

I would like to replace the isle/floor lights with some type LED. Since my original lights have been left on and cooked the fixture, I want to replace the complete light. Suggestions?

Rick, If you are speaking of the small round lights scattered around the coach, I found suitable replacements at super bright LEDS on the internet.
They are about 1/4 to 3/8 bigger than those I removed but identical in looks.

Edward, That is what I need to replace. I looked at Super Brite and was unable to find anything. Do you have a part number?

Rick,
I bought these. they look great:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170612003162&viewitem= &sspagename=ADME%3AB%3AEOIBSA%3AUS%3A1123

Rick, Went to web, was not able to locate. !00% sure that is where I bought them. My coach is in Fl. waiting on me to get back and finish putting the exterrior back together. I will see if I can contact my son and get the number. Ed

I have used one of these that has the half shade with good results, mine are the old style with a push and twist bulb but this type of a bulb will give the same results they a are use as license plate bulbs and I have seen them in auto parts stores and Wal Mart.

They are manufactured by Peterson Manufacturing;



The LED replacement bulbs can be found at http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...ini-wedge.html

Rick, My guess they have removed them from site. I bought all exterrior lights from Dupree Prod. and Super Bright. If you look at the lic. plate lighting, there is a suitable replacement in LED . Part no. L PC-X-NW2
Shape is a different but they are only ! in. thick. I also bought some accent chrome rings for the front turn signals from Truck Pro.

Just another source pointer for you:

West Marine also offers this type of light fixture. Both LED and Incand. type bulbs.

Has nice online catalog for checking things out.
