Bulb Type?

I was considering replacing the interior wall globe bulbs with LED's....however I've tried removing several with no luck. Tried twisting, push and twist, and strong language! I didn't want to tempt fate and break the glass and fish out the base with needle-nose pliers.
Does anyone have the secret code??

thx,
Phil

What year trailer and which fixtures?

Most of the bulbs are simple twist or pull straight out. They're standard automotive style bulbs.

Perhaps a pic of the problematic fixture and bulb would help.

Hi Phil,

The "clues" you gave... "wall", "Globe" and then you did not want to "break the glass"...

Unless the prior owner did some modifications, does the fixture look "similar" to this? This is from a 2004 camper and your 2007 has a different flask I think but the bulb may be the same.





This fixture but double is also over the kitchen table


Those pics are after my LED conversion. These are the original bulbs next to a few of the new LED


If your fixture looks like mine, you can see the socket in the bottom. They are push in straight and pull out straight, and yes, there are times when they get stuck. The flood lights are push and twist with 2 tangs on the side

There are several LED conversion threads on SOC. Here is one
LED Bulbs

And here is a hit using the Google Custom Search, You can read for a while...
https://cse.google.com/cse/home?cx=0...95:95x3m3w6lto

Put in "LED Bulbs" in the lower search box, The one that says "Google Custom Search" and hit go

Hope this helps

John

PS. There is a way in your "user CP" (User Control Panel, see the top left of the screw in small letters) to add a signature, and in that you can put your camper model number and year. Truck too if wanted and even a cool pic. Then we know which camper you have. I just happened to remember since you had the bed post with the year and model.

Thanks Steve & John!

John, your reply was posted as I was out taking pictures!!
It's true a picture is worth a 1000 words. That's exactly what I was looking for.....btw, I updated my profile too.

Phil

LED's

Do make that conversion to LED lights They use 10% of the power & last a lifetime. Required equipment if you plan to boondock & pay for a few w/ campground fees you save

This thread from another forum (also a Social Knowledge forum) gives a pretty good summary of selecting led replacements for the various fixtures in an RV.

What I learned about Retro-fit LED lighting. - Open Roads Radio forum for Ham, Amateur Radio and RV camping

Thanks all for the great advice....it looks like the conversion is a definite go. The current plan is campground near the Jersey shore during the summer months. Come fall I plan to boondock as often as I can so battery life will be key.

It won't matter for these lights, but you mention a 286SR above and a 289SR in your profile. Those are two different models- which do you have? 286SR is a front kitchen/rear bedroom, 289SR is a front bedroom/rear living room with two chairs in the very back.

Sunline Fan,
Thanks for catching that .... In my haste I fat fingered the model type and knocked a couple feet off at the same time!! My profile is correct It's definitely a 289SR.
BTW, the two chairs in the rear you mentioned are really comfy!!

Phil

Sweet! Yes, assuming you have the original chairs still, they are very comfortable! I bought one for my 286SR this past summer since the floorplan didn't have one.
