Interior light bulb replace

Hello guys. My bathroom light is out. Was also thinking of replacing them all to natural white as they are warm white. Maybe. But i dont see any bulbs like this. They are all short with a wedge plug online. How do I change these and what type of bulb I need? I have to resolve these or something? I didnt find anything like these online. Any help would be much appreciated.

The best thing to do is to buy a new fixture in the Kelvin rating (color) you are looking for.

You will have to replace the whole fixture as the LED strip is permanently mounted and probably not replaceable. I would research online, amazon and rv places for RV led light fixtures.

I'm finally gettin around to replacing this bathroom light. I found a very similar replacement but it has 2 options of lighting. 4000k and 3000k.

4000k will be closer to natural light.

Wow. I may have made a stupid mistake. I just noticed a switch on the wall above the towel rack. When I turn it on it does nothing. I wonder if this is some kind of secondary light switch smh. The light wouldnt turn on from the fixture maybe bc this switch was off? I cant see what else it would be for. But I'll check in the morning. Maybe someone can shed some light before I get to it

I had the thought that there was a switch involved, but thought you might had thought of it already.

Lol all the lights in the trailer turn on manually from the fixture. Go figure in the bathroom there is a switch on the wall too. Haha. So light was never broken. The 4000k is nice above the bathroom mirror though so not for nothing

Super! I had an experience with an older trailer where in the bathroom area there was a switch, like yours, on the light fixture. My kids would say the light in the bathroom doesn't work. After I showed them the switch on the wall, it all made sense.

I sure like the LED lights. But the cheap ones that were installed started flickering at less than three years old. There was a recall on some of the older lights due to a fire hazard, but these were not those. So I'm stuck with replacing with new ones. Hopefully I've chosen a good enough replacement to last for many, many years.

There are step by step to change RV interior light bulbs. Step 1: turn off the light. Step 2: remove the light exterior. Step 3: take out the old light bulb. Step 4: insert the new light bulb. Step 5: test the new light. Hope this is useful for someone.

I would stick with warm white. I tried the natural white bulbs in mine and the lights were just too bright and harsh. Went back and switched them to warm white.

I actually like both. The daylight is nice for bathroom and cooking and cleaning. When you really need to see. Warm white nice for just hanging out and what not. The fixture I bought has both settings

I’m not going to be much help for the newer trailers that came with LED’s. Our 5th, a ‘13, came with all incandescent bulbs. I replaced all of the bulbs with LED “bulbs”. I’ve bought several rounds of replacements from vendors on eBay and amazon. Being cheap replacements I see fairly frequent failures of the LED’s but I can get them easily and cheaply and the failures are less frequent than the original bulbs. From memory we had 13 20W and 10 10W halogen fixtures. They seemed to fail pretty quickly and put out a LOT of heat. I think the LED failures are due to the electronics and not the actual LED, I can’t say what’s fails on them so this is JMHO.

Hey, thank you for sharing your problem with us here. I'm not sure if you will like this idea, but you can try to adjust the explosion proof LED floodlights on your wall or outside of your bathroom.

I don't think there are any RV's with a Class 1 Div 1 interior so no need for an explosion proof fixture.
