Thumbs up LED Taillight Mod

The Taillights on most campers are really dim during the day and I wanted to convert to LED for the added brightness. The taillights on most are made by Command Products and their web site listed a kit for the Command 81 lights.
K-0026: SURFACE MOUNT LED TAIL LIGHT UPGRADE KITS ‚ÄĒ Command Electronics
The kit arrived in a couple days and off to the 5W to install. Remove the old cover, cut the socket off, strip the wires,use provided connectors and connect wires as instructed, secure circuit board to two bottom screws, install new lens cover. Repeat, 20 minutes for both sides.

I did a short video if you interested but can't upload it here Big Differance

Great mod! I tried to accomplish the same thing and went with the Philips LED's that fit into the existing bulb sockets. It wasn't as bright as I had hoped. I didn't think to look for anything like this.

Nice mod, been thinking about upgrading mine to led for the brightness, is there a big differance. I thought about getting one of the plug and play lights that plugs into the light bulb socket.

I took a trip this weekend, and my buddy that was following me told me my right side brake light and turn signal was not working. We took a look when we reached our destination, and discovered that the socket and bulb were all rusty.

I am ordering this kit now to eliminate that problem.

I also want to upgrade to Leds the original tail lights actually have tinted lenses. What's with that?? Makes them even harder to see.

The Command alED Upgrade is very good. Very bright. You can actually tell the park lights are on in full sun. Definately worth the 40-odd bucks Canadian. I put these on last summer and am very happy with them.
Happy Camping

I made the change a couple of weeks ago and very happy with the result. Much brighter and as Northern Jay said, they are easily seen in direct sun. Definitely worth the money
