seems funny to me how Jayco boasts bout LED lighting..but bulbs in cabinet above bed/shower/microwave hood/bulbs above kitchen counter/porch light/and all storage boxes are not LED...they are now all LED and makes huge difference...brighter and way less energy consumption...and bonus of less heat generated....it is hot in NW now.

Exactamundo ! I am in process of doing the same thing ! It's kinda irritating that they brag about LED's when only 25% (?) is LED....

Maybe their trying to get rid of their old light bulb inventory! ...

Yes you can. Had an Airstream TT before the Grayhawk and I had just replaced ALL the bulbs (inside/out) with LED's. Wife really liked the counter LED's as it kept thing cooler. With the GrayH those bulbs really get hot and warm up the counter/sink area real quick . Replaced them with these.....

Just make sure to see if they have "warm" white available.
Next area that was "hot" was the bedroom overhead (pillow) lights. Wow...hot!. So I replaced those next. I got these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I could've gotten a little longer but I'm ok with these.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents worth

I've used M4 for my LED replacements in my soon to be 'old' camper. I'm satisifed with the quality of them.

Is this the bulb I'd need for the two pillow lights over the queen bed?

Best of luck with the new rv. Do a search on here and read the thread on the helper springs and make sure yours are properly adjusted before delivery. Just to save your self a future head ache.

thanks for Helper Spring comment Greyhawk 01...

And Jolopsy >....here is the bulbs I put in to replace those dim bulbs above the bed...pillow bulbs whatever...

Cutequeen 2 X 1156 S25 Ba15s White 1350 Lumens Super Bright 54smd 54-smd 2835 Chipsets LED Car Lights Bulb Backup Signal Blinker Stop Brake Tail Light Bulbs 12v - White
above link from Amazon, you can get most of your LED bulbs there...(the Microwave bulb I found on E-bay...)
they look like turn signal-stop light bulbs...only they are LED...and are so much brighter than those crappy regular bulbs...

congrats on your new Greyhawk...
btw, my helper springs were about 4" inches apart from each other...will cinch them down to the recommended 2" space as pictured..
this Jayco Blog is awesome...thanks everyone for your advice and help...
regards...
