I have a new RV and I'm glad all of the lights are LED and not those energy hog counterpart. Also, it actually made me decide to save money into buying another battery.

Seems like a "paddle" type LED would make more sense in the hood. That's what I installed.

I installed an LED in the range hood on my last TT. It looked just like the one in the video. The seller claimed it was an ultrabright LED. After comparing the LED to the original bulb for brightness, I reinstalled the original. I don't use that light very often anyway.

What brand RV? The current Rockwood and previous Keystone were advertised as "LED lighting". They did have LEDs....except for the range hood, porch light, running lights, brake lights, etc.

Coleman. I don't think the brake lights need to be LED. It gets energy mostly when the tow truck is running and therefore don't draw much from battery reserves.

The brake lights should be the best place to use LEDs because of the bright, instant on light helps get the attention of the texting tailgater.

The brake and marker lights are powered by the tow vehicle.

Some tow vehicle circuits do not like LED's.

Must be asking too much with LED price 4 to 8x ordinary bulb.

I mean alternator is running to charge battery hence energy draw is less than replenishment in charging.
