Default Adding Puck Lights

Anyone added puck lights on either side of the HVAC plenum down to the kitchen and dinette? We could likely add 3 to 4 more and get more light.

I haven't, but then I haven't felt the need to.

I did replace all of my halogen lights with led's, which because of the plastic bezel rings cracking when I finally got them removed, I just decided to replace the whole fixture.

If you or your previous owner has already done this (gone to led) and you feel you need more light then go for it. The existing fixtures have a socket with a blue and white wire. The blue is hot (blue is a low voltage sheathing color). Adding a few led bulbs to the system won't be any issue. If you add 4 more halogen bulbs I still don't think it would be an issue depending on how many bulbs are already on the circuit. Each halogen bulb pulls about .8 amps of current. The wire BB used to feed them was 10 gauge.

If your bus is still using the halogen bulbs, I would encourage you to make that change first.

Here is a little right up of me changing out the fixtures in my bus.

If anyone removes the original light fixtures please do not discard as the are made of unobtainium. I have several broken gold rings that I have “repaired “.

Maybe we will try a different LED bulb. Patty and I both feel we are just a bit to dim in the bus. Thanks for the link to the lights. Do you think the LED pucks you installed are brighter than the halogens?

Maybe. It also could be the light spectrum is a little better. If you have already converted to led's, just add a few more. It would be nearly impossible to overload the electrical system.

We converted to LED and much brighter than the original. Make sure that you don’t have the lights dimmed.
