To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought these to retrofit my Class A RV coach but these were too big in diameter to work in my application as the original tubes lay right against the metal reflector above them. First 2 I tried broke the fixture (not particularly strong anyway) and had to return them all and use adhesive LED strips instead. They looked very well built, it was unfortunate that they were bigger.
Fast shipping, great price point and very easy to install without a hassle!! The retro fit from conventional 2 tube T8 18" 12 volt fixture to these T8 LED 18" lamps was a snap, taking about 10 minutes a fixture... The Natural Light Color was perfect, not to bright and not to soft, just right on for me. I have a mint 2003 Alfa SeeYa 40FD 40 foot Motorhome and I have been changing out all lighting to LED, Truly, it has really improved things a 100%, inside and outside. Reduced my energy demand for lighting about 50% and my 600 watt solar system has now become even more efficient and dry camping without generator set running has been tripled and a noise free blessing! Also extends the battery life even more, saving many more $$'s on batteries. Anyway these LED Retro Bulbs are fantastic and "I Highly Recommend Them" and this Seller (Alfateers RV Services!) Oh yes, I just purchased 4 more of these from Alfateers RV, to complete the job, Now 100% LED's on all my RV Lighting and running lights... I'm a Happy Camper, FOR SURE!!
I normally don't leave reviews however, I have to make an exception here. I been wanting to update my fluorescent bulbs in my motor home for sometime but didn't feel like engineering a solution. I had a bulb go bad so I decided to see what's available in the marketplace sense it has been years since I researched this last. To my surprise, I discovered these replacements. Installation was very easy. Just remove the power and the ground from the ballast and connect to the provided harness. Plug harness into the new LED lights and install the light into the fixture. The new lights are only slightly brighter than the old ones and consume less power which is perfect. So far, very happy with this purchase and encourage fellow RV'ers to make the change.
Wow - these LED replacement are great. Packed in heavy cardboard tubes for protection- shipping was fast. Comes with 10 bulbs and 10 wire harnesses. Installation is simple - cut the wires going to the ballast as it is no longer used - you can remove all the old ballast & wiring or leave in place. Connected the supplied wire harness to the RV wires, connect the LED lights to the harness and snap into the fluorescent holders. These are very bright - in the bath room we only use 1 bulb vs 2, in the galley 4 vs 6. It’s a bright natural looking light. Ordering more to finish the rest of the RV. Highly recommend.
I wish I would have bought these earlier. It came with small wiring setup where I only had to use one wire nut per pair of lights. The rest was plug and play. Installed all 10 in less than thirty minutes. I was so happy I ordered replacements for the 12” also. Worth the money in updating our rv.
I installed 5 sets in my Rv today and couldn’t be happier. Shipping was a little longer then usual prime but only by a couple days. I am using these to replace the fluorescent bulbs in my fixtures. Install was super easy if you have knowledge of 12v systems. The supplied wire harness has a connector for the positive side but you will need connectors for the ground side. I used crimp caps but wire nuts or butt connectors would work fine too. Each light took about 10 minutes to install. They look great and are brighter then the 15 watt fluorescent bulbs. I like that the direction of the bulb is adjustable but I just pointed mine straight down. Seems like a sturdy product for the money we will see how long they last.
