Thanks ThreeButchers... I used your link and I ordered 10. I think 10 is all I need for the camper... give or take 1 or 2.

I replaced all my lights with LEDS including the porch light. I bought them on ebayfor $3.20 each. I would advise putting a dab of silicone on each corner as the self stick tape turns loose after a while. What an improvement!!!

What a great thread! My wife doesn't like to leave any of the lights on because of how hot they get. We never boon dock but when we turn on the main set of ceiling lights the convertor fan runs on high and its annoying.

This is a great thread. I just ordered 12 48 LED panels off of Ebay at $2.39 each. I am sure glad I did not purchase the LED lights I was looking at last year that were nearly $12 each! Having low ceilings in the 184bh, I have noticed the heat from the incandescent bulbs probably more than one would in an average ceiling height trailer. I am looking forward to getting these.

Please would you post a link to the Ebay listing? I have been making a slow (because of cost) switch from CFLs to LEDs in the house, but didn't know that this 12v stuff was available at these prices. Thanks to everyone for this thread, I have owned a 184bh for almost two years now, and plan to post my experiences to help others with problems.

This was easily one of the most useful, inexpensive and simple to complete mods that I have done (if you can even call it a mod).

Found your seller on Ebay.com (your link is Ebay.ca) and put it in my wish list. At that price, I'll probably upgrade all of my lights eventually, including my car and truck dome lights. I couldn't wait, so I purchased these from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and paid over $6 each for three, getting them tomorrow from Prime shipping and will also post my results once they're installed.

Haven't had time to install my LEDs yet, but I just plugged one into a landscaping light that I installed as a ceiling light for my back porch. The ones I ordered from Amazon are much brighter than I expected for only 24 LEDs. Turns out that they are described as "5050 SMD", meaning that each individual LED on the panel is 5.0mm by 5.0mm. Many Ebay panels I've seen are "3028 SMD", so each LED is 3.0mm by 2.8mm. As I understand it, the 24 LED 5050 SMD panel is (in theory) about 1 1/2 times brighter than a 48 LED 3028 SMD panel...something to consider when buying. The wife is unsure of the cool white color of the ones I've bought, so we may go with warm white LEDs, and unless the 5050 SMD panels can be found much cheaper than those I've just purchased, I'll be getting the rest of them from Ebay and waiting for shipment from overseas.
