One of the things I haven't liked about my fifth wheel trailer was that the light from the original (12 v. incandescent bulb) ligh...ts was inadequate to read by. I bought two of these Double Pancake LED Light Fixtures recently and finally got around to installing one a week
or so ago. WoW! Lots of light, way less heat, way less power consumption, and I like the very white color of the light. It might be too bright in some applications (sitting around with your friends drinking wine) but if you like bright light for other applications, I'd highly recommend this unit. The only problem with it is that if the unit is in your direct line-of-sight,
it's almost too bright. We expect to take care of that by only installing them in select locations. BTW, installation was simple - screw out several screws, connect the wires, screw in several screws. Make sure it's the same shape as your current lights or get the base pieces as well. As I recall, screws didn't necessarily go back in the exact same
places. Get an electric drill/screw driver and it is EASY!
Almost exactly what I expected, the only exception costing this rating a star. This is still a very white light, not anywhere near... the warm white I was looking for. This will be nothing like your current lights, or even fluorescents with warm white tubes in them. The good news is that installation replacing existing wired fixtures is very easy. Lots of
light for small battery drain.
This light is great, It puts out way more light then the stock lights. You can use ten of these double pancake lights and use the ...energy of one old doublepancake light. So you batteries last alot longer when dry camping. Now these come in two light bulbs brightnesses, you have warm white which is more like the light of the org lighting or the bright white,which are really bright. The white bright are cheaper for some reason. They
did have them on sale for around $40.00 . I got two and really like them. Was going to buy 10 more but it took so long to get them in the mail the sale was over and I was not going to pay $200.00 more dollars for them. You will need the bazeles.. the trim around the light to cover old lighting imprint and dirt. Very easy to install. As time goes on LED
lighting will flood the market and prices will come down. I tried some Led light bulbs, they were all right but not as good as these lights. I prefer the warm white, makes it more like home inside motor home. Bright wite wer to bright for me..Hope I help you out. I will buy more when a sale come up again.

a single light fixture and never had enought light replace it with a double you won't
regret it now I have pleanty of light in the shower...
We have replaced 5 of our old light fixtures with the LED. They are wonderful & give off a much brighter, whiter light. as well as... a lot less heat. Coupled with the bazel, they are an easy, clean replacement.
This light is wonderful, our trailer has double lights but not the rocker switch so the full double light is on all the time, plus... they are full white covers, so the lighting is rather yellow, changing to these LED lights where one or both lights can be on is wonderful, the clear, bright light also makes it much easier on the eyes. Although they are VERY expensive at
regular price, when you can get them on, the On-Line sale price it is well worth it. I have changed out 5 so far in the trailer and will continue until all are changed out,along with the single pancake lights. Definitely recommend them.
I have replaced five double incandescent fixtures with these
lights. They use much less current than the old lights and
provide ...more light. Usually, I only need one half of the
fixture to provide enough light. The low current draw is
phenomenal. When dry camping at night I used to use only one
light at a time to conserve battery charge. Now I can have
2 or 3 lights turned on and still draw less current than one
incandescent fixture...and the bright warm light is enough
for most tasks. I paid full price for mine and considered it
a good value. At the new sale price it's a must have if you
do any dry camping at all.
This warm white LED light costs almost $15 more than the very blue LED alternative. However, to my eye, it is definitely worth it.... The very blue LED is very harsh. I love
the warm white. It is true that this light is not as yellow as the stock incandescent lights, but I like it better. Andinstallation is easy.
I tried some LED replacement bulbs in my double pancake light and I didn't like the blue-ish light they gave off. So, I ordered th...is light because of the warm white description. These are SOOOO much better. They basically feel like the same warm coloring as the original bulbs. One thing to note, the bulbs in this fixture fit into my existing fixture. So, all I did was pop the
bulbs out (have to remove one screw) and put them into my existing fixture. I just wish I could buy the bulbs only and save a little money as I now don't need the whole replacement fixture. I can't seem to find the bulbs by themselves though.
Our trailer came with a horrible fixture above the dinette. We replaced it with this fixture.
Great light, no glare, and no more... head knocker. I really like it and it is well worth the
money, especially when it is on sale. Delivery was quick, too.
When I ordered this item from Camping World online it was on back order till late Dec., I received it two weeks early, awesome!!! ...Much better product than what was installed in my RV and very easy to install. The lighting is outstanding and being an LED, it uses very little juice. I recommend this product.
We do not have any way of verifying equipment installed in an RV by the manufacturer. If the entire fixture is to be replaced, it is recommended that the dimensions of the current fixture be compared to the replacement for fit.
Incandescent fixtures can use LED bulbs. Not all fixtures use the same bulb type so the bulb model will have to be checked on the current model to locate a replacement. Fixture #57278 uses SKU#60771 as a replacement bulb.
