LED's almost complete

After I receive this last order from Amazon, I will have replaced just about all of the bulbs with LED's. The only exception is 4 reading lights since I haven't found an LED bright enough for them. I replaced the 3 1141's outside too.

With maybe half (but the most used) replaced by last year I saw about double the life on the battery. I think most of the energy consumption in a camper is lights but it's different in the house. The objective in the camper is to save battery since you can't save any money buying the bulbs. To buy LED's for the house is to save energy cost. It's a little more diffucult to justify the cost of bulbs since the savings aren't as apparent but I started buying some for the house too a few at a time.

One 1157 bulb draws 24 watts one LED about a watt and a half. My T1700 had 13 bulbs if I turned them all on that was 320 watts or about 27 amps that's a lot of current. I have gotten to the point of being able to go for 5 days with out a recharge with two 80 amp batteries water pump (with a 2 gallon accumulator tank) and a Fantastic fan even a little TV and my ham radio. transmitter.
