I ordered from the link in post 5, but you never know whether their supply chain is consistent. I’m going to keep using them - love the extra light. Hopefully it was just a couple of bad apples.

Has anyone done a write-up on changing all, or most of, the interior lights to LED on the M380? The search won't look for LED...too short or common.

My post is #10 here - https://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.c...ad.php?t=15240
(I searched “NoGas LED” )

Still using what I described in the 5 year old post above. Probably better options out there by now. The lower lumen (but energy efficient) “bulbs” I used should be brighter and I’m considering going to brighter white instead of the more yellow color range I originally selected. Lastly, since I’ve mostly eliminated all the “gold” for cosmetic reasons, someday I’d like to convert to newer stainless trim rings & fixtures. However there’s like 40 of the darn things and they all work fine as-is, so other higher priority projects always seem to come first for the $$’s .

Default M380 - Changing out interior LED “bulbs” - Link

Additional to above post -

For the two above bed fixtures also changed the hot halogens out to LED. Used a couple “bulbs” with a focusing lense & bayonet fittings. The shorter size means that they are slightly recessed in the fixture, which is good. Selected a more blue color range for these two bulbs and for reading they are perfect. The lenses focus the beam perfectly for reading at night. The 3rd picture shows the light beam spot on the bed below. Might’ve purchased these two bulbs from another source, it’s been too many years

Never got around to changing out the above sink fluorescent fixture bulbs to LED strips, though I’ve seen other posts on the WOG by those who have done so.

Thanks Van! Are those bulbs over the head of the bed 1156 style?
