RV LED Lights

It doesn't take long after you have taken ownership of your RV that you find yourself replacing light bulbs which get ridiculously hot and don't last very long. You've probably wondered if there wasn't a better RV lighting solution than those inefficient incandescent light bulbs you’re currently using? There is no better time to make the switch to cool, long lasting LED lighting which is a much safer, energy efficient way to light up your camper.

Reasons to Make the Switch to LED Bulbs in your RV

  • If you’ve ever burned yourself on an incandescent bulb you’ll love the improved safety factor that an LED bulb provides. Because it always stays cool to the touch, you’ll never have to worry again about accidentally burning fingers and hands.
  • If you’re dry camping or “boondocking” (no electric, water, sewer hookups) you’ll be thrilled at how much longer your LED bulbs last and how much less power they use. Switching to LED light bulbs will reduce your battery drain significantly.
  • If you’re a seasonal camper paying for power, LED bulbs will noticeably reduce your electricity costs.
  • LED light bulbs pay for themselves in the long run. Although LED bulbs initially cost more than incandescent bulbs, they last far longer than florescent or incandescent bulbs. LED bulbs can last for over 100,000 hours – 20 times longer than incandescent.
  • Regular light bulbs are very fragile regardless of their size. LED bulbs are durable and completely break resistant due to their solid state construction.
  • LED lighting is environmentally friendly. The bulbs are mercury-free and contain no toxic chemicals and because they last so long, there’s less waste to consider.

More and more RV'ers are switching to LED lights for both indoor and outdoor use. Plug them right in to your existing socket without needing to replace the whole fixture. Along with saving energy, money, and getting relief from safety concerns, you’ll find the soft, cool glow of LED lighting far more enjoyable and peaceful feeling in and around your RV.
