The warm white light that Chak mentions in the link above and quite pleasing to my eye. I still have to say that the Command Electronics upgrade kit gives me the best overall light. It's bright, warm white, and the replacement lens just enhances the light better than the original. But for around $5 a kit, you can't really go wrong with the China made lights from eBay.

Smile LED Conversion Color "temperature"

Hey there, another Preston here!

OK, there is a way to know what "color" the light is--and it's measured on the Kelvin Scale. A typical incandescent light bulb is in the 2400k range. Where as standard old-fashioned flourescent lights are in the 6000k range.

So, reading all the fine print on any light bulb will tell you the answer you need... the lower the 1000's the warmer/yellowish the light is. The higher, the cooler/bluish the light is. 6000k & 3000k are the typical color temperatures available today.

Also, for the TT, make sure you get 12v/DC. Many will require 24v/DC --> that won't work!

If you dim them, you need a special dimmer that will work with the LED's you purchase. It's all doable--and really not that difficult. You will save energy and keep the TT cooler. And they'll last until the sell the little bugger! But you will pay up front for them! (they have to make money--they're only selling you LED's once--whereas they used to sell you lightbulbs x4/x5 times a year!)

Ciao! The 'other' Preston in this thread!

I have the China made lights shown in Chakara’s link. I paid about $2.50 each. I think mine are the 3000 Kelvin units. They look very similar to incandescents. The only issue is you have to change out the adhesive as the supplier picked out the wrong type and it does not hold up to the heat.

The big issue with LEDs is to understand Luminaries. The ones I have I think were about 290 lums and I think it closely matches the incandescent bulbs.

Our Jayco Skylark came with LED's throughout and they are white, stay cool and don't seem to interfere with TV reception if the signal is strong.
