Let there be less LED light

After the second camping trip with LED lights installed in all overhead fixtures, Kim & I both agreed the bathroom was just too dim. So the original incandescent bulbs were reinstalled in that location for last week's trip to Stone Mountain's campground where we stay while visiting Six Flags' amusement parks.

For our trip to the Smoky Mountains at the end of this month, the light fixture over the dinner table will have its original 1156F bulbs returned so we can better see what we are eating.

Maybe at some point, a light vendor will market an 1156-style bulb with super-bright LEDs instead of regular LEDs. Until then I guess we'll have hybrid lighting in the Overlander.

  1. I have recently replaced all our interior bulbs with LED's. I believe they are the high-intensity variety (

    We are going to Yosemite in 4 weeks so it will be a good test. I am real close to posting a blog post about the LED's I have done on our trailer and tow vehicle.

    I have a complement of incandescent's in our drawer, just in case.

    Let us know how yours goes when you get them!
