REPLACE Your RV Bulbs!

REPLACE Your RV Bulbs!


oh it’s a beautiful morning out there
he’s like 70 degrees just perfect I got a couple packages coming today there are
a couple little improvements for my for my RV so I’m excited to get get them
excited to put them in and excited to show you guys what I got I went to the
grocery store yesterday and I bought nothing but snacks
that’s all I buy and cheese was on sale so I just bought a ton of stuff for
quesadillas and I just gonna like eat quesadillas for the rest of my life oh
alright so I just ate like four cheese
quesadillas and that put me into some sort of weird cheese quesadilla coma for
the last hour so I passed out I don’t usually take naps in the middle of the
day but let’s go see if my package has arrived yet very crafty you have package I’m gonna replace that
my kitchen event thank you you’re welcome December activities.What is that, it has legs and everything. you need a ladder your first time here
yeah yeah it’s something special man super nice people here super nice
service super awesome service bringing the ladder to me today we will be
replacing my kitchen vents my old ones just flapping in the wind smash in vent
installation kit this is a putty tape I’m gonna be putting the putty tape on
here to seal it and then putting the screws through then I also got these LED
light bulbs and these are gonna replace all the bulbs in my RV
they’ll decrease the energy usage of the lights they also produce a lot less heat
oh yeah and I got this nifty little keychain ring tripod for your cell phone
so when I’m out and I don’t have my camera I can still take really cool time
lapses and I’ll let you know how this works let’s do this vent all right first we’re gonna go ahead and
take off this old that is a new one look how wide it is I
just shredded to pieces taking off see how yellow it is looks like a good fit
alright now I’m gonna remove all the excess putty that’s sitting around that
hole all right so what we’re gonna be doing
now is putting this putty tape onto the new vent and then we’re gonna screw it
on and hopefully that should be it let’s go put the new one on there it is
I might caulk around the edges too just because I don’t know how good that seal
is what people said you don’t need to so let me know if you think I should all
right we’re taking a break from upgrading the RV to go out to dinner
with a couple friends here at the campground all right we’re gonna go
ahead and test out one of these LED bulbs here they are and made in China
what do you know all right so old bulb new bulb can you
tell the difference between the two that on the right is the LED bulb and on the
left is the incandescent bulb that’s hot this is what my rig looks like these are
LED lights right here none of these have been replaced yet so these are all still
incandescent bulbs but we’re going to test this against what its gonna look
like after I replace the LEDs keep in mind that if you do end up
getting these LED light bulbs that sometimes you may need to flip them over
to reverse the polarity if they don’t work at first
okay so I’ve just replaced all the bulbs with the LED bulb and my house feels
much more like a jail yeah I kind of feel like I’m in prison or in an office
of some sort my cameras on the same ISO as before so we should have a pretty
good picture of the differences between how it is now with the LED bulbs and
I’ll flip to the incandescent bulbs and we’ll see what that looks like as well
and compare them side-by-side so what do I think about these LED light bulbs if
you look right behind me you can see I think these bulbs are different shades
of white should you buy these bulbs I don’t know I will say a couple of things
one the energy draw is much less usually when I have this many of my lights on in
my camper I can hear the fan that cools my breaker box
I can hear it on it’s blowing it’s making sure that breaker box is cool I
have a lot more lights on in my camper right now then I usually do when the fan
kicks on and there is no fan so what I’m assuming is that the power draw is much
much much smaller and then on top of that heat so these incandescent bulbs
they pretty much as soon as you turn on the light these heat up really hot they
cool down pretty quickly but they get hot really fast and if you have them on
for an hour two hours three hours four hours five hours they’re going to be
extremely hot he is definitely something to consider as his power draw so I
definitely think LED bulbs are great for that their downsides is they
they are not quite as bright they’re close but not quite
they’re also not quite as orange and that orange color makes you feel like
you’re in less of an office in more of a home what I can say is when I went and
removed a lot of these bulbs I noticed that some were burnt out but
there were also some that were black like this I’m not sure exactly why these
what bulbs were black there’s only I think two or three of them but it looks
like either they were going to burn out soon or they were going to light my
whole rig on fire and kill me in my sleep I would say that you should buy
LED bulbs to replace your current RV bulbs but you might want to look into a
different manufacturer maybe one that doesn’t have this big ole made in China
logo on it maybe try to find yourself an American manufacturer that gives a
quality product it’d probably be safer brighter better just more consistent you
probably wouldn’t have bulbs of different colors until next time guys
make sure you subscribe to the channel I put out awesome videos like every single
freaking day so you’ll definitely want to be a part of it so hit that subscribe
button just do it just do it I know you want to just hit just click just click
it it’s right there it’s right it’s right under this do it give this video a
thumbs up if you enjoyed it and until next time guys I’ll see you later what a day what a day what a day what a
day

  1. yes there are different strengths of LED bulbs and different shades. Buyer be aware. And the cheaper you pay the more they will explode

  2. Hey Sam… Good idea to swap out your lamps to LED…

    Now the Light "Whiteness" is the Kelvin rating, the higher the number 7000 the more white the lamp [up to 10,000]
    The Lower the Kelvin, 2700 the more tan the light incandescence feel… all lamps sold for every need has a Kelvin rating, and is usually overlooked by even pros…
    Simple buy the 'whiteness' you desire, by the Kelvin Rating…
    Every Lamp has these ratings
    — Watt = energy used
    — Lumens = Brightness of Lamp
    — Kelvin = color of lamp
    [Plus the obvious voltage needed to power lamp]

    The other thing, you have a nice RV…
    I would of tied a couple of rags around any ladder top edge, I would lean against my RV… Micro scratches from ladder edge…
    Yes, it has happened to me…
    Thanks for the videos, thanks for sharing….

  3. You are the new bulb, we are the old bulbs. We have been married 47 yrs. But we are hotter (hardee har) We will be newbie RVers. But I don't know how to work the Yu Toob machine😫 Yours would be more entertaining anyway. Keep up the good work!

  4. I have the same light fixtures and found some flat disc shaped LEDs on Amazon that are almost identical to the original bulbs in color and brightness.

  5. There's definitely a difference between LED bulbs. I bought the cheap ones for my RV as well and didn't like them. They burned out quicker than regular bulbs as well. The quality LED bulbs are quite expensive, though. So, I haven't tried those out yet.

    Quesadillas are the bomb! I like to add Sriracha to mine. Yum!

  6. Sam, Steve Brooks (comments below) got it right. There are also differences between manufacturers. I try to find the lumens rating on the bulbs to compare the brightness. Some put it in their literature but some don't. Some put it on there, but don't tell the truth, so it's hit and miss. The best led bulbs for the rv I've found are also the most expensive I've bought. I got them at an RV dealer and they are the Star Lights brand. I knew I was getting taken, but in the end it was worth the $95 to get the brightness and color I wanted. I also bought the 20 for $25 off of Amazon too. They aren't as bright and don't appear to be the best quality either, so I put them in the basement compartments. The lights that I leave on at night if I'm away from the RV are the good quality ones. I have dogs and I don't want to take any chances with something going bonkers with one of these bulbs and starting a fire —- especially if I'm not there. It's not likely to happen, even with the poor quality ones, but better safe than sorry.

    To get the same color of light as your incandescents, you will need to buy a bulb in the color range of 3000 kelvin. The bulbs you bought look like they are in the 6000 – 7000 kelvin range. Sometimes the sellers call this color "daylight". I don't like that color, but some people do. I prefer the much warmer tone of 3000 kelvin, which is sometimes called warm white by the sellers.

    In regards to finding an american manufacturer, I doubt you will find one. All the leds I've seen are made in China. Some are just better quality than others.

  7. Amazon has a great selection of LED lighting. I replaced most of my cfl and incandescents in my house and garage. For garage I got the cheap white led strip ones but for inside get the more expensive nicer ones for warmer lighting. BTW new subscriber, awesome channel! I might hit the road when I'm older.

  8. >>————————–> Most likely many LEDs are a cool blue light and the incandescents are a typical warm yellow. I guess humans tend to gravitate to the warm yellow – after all, that's the color of a wood fire (and recently oil lamps), something we've used to for thousands and even millions of years. It's kinda built into our DNA now. I bet we''ll have "warm" LEDs on the market soon.

  9. I would definitely use some lap seal caulking around the vent, RV's are prone to leak, I'm dealing with what I thought was a pin whole on marker light that has caused major damage on my RV, better safe than sorry.

  10. I switched a few of my bulbs to LED. Yes, they are cooler and use less power, but they're ugly. Not as bright, and not as warm feeling. Sort of torn.

  11. You need to go with M4led bulbs, they are super high quality. Also, you want to go with warm Light for the inside.

  12. Why did you choose a diesel vs gas truck?
    What kind of insurance coverage do you have on your 5th wheel? Thx
    Love your videos!

  13. I certainly don t like the fact that they are not as bright. My motorhome is dark enough as it is and getting less light would be a big NONO for me. Thanks for showing us this though!

  14. There are some that look like small paddles and the lights are on one side. We got those for the ceiling lights and they are so bright, we only need one in the dual light fixture. We are using the round ones for some of the wall lighting and they are not as bright. Lights also come in warm – cool and daylight – kelvin rating.

  15. You can order LED's in various warmths & hues – but they're definitely the way to roll, with regard to not overburdening your electrical system. Especially if you're disconnected from shore power.

    I freaking love the way you express yourself. Quesadilla coma. LMAO

  16. you should look up M4Products. http://www.m4products.com I got all of my LED from them even ones for the outside of my rv. If you haven't seen them, RVgeeks on YouTube is how i found out about the lights and a bunch of other cool stuff for rv living

  17. I tried the LEDs too. They only emit light out of the diode and well, it’s like a fluorescent. Where the light shines is right but shadows really are deep

  18. Thanks for video! Looks like I bought the same exact LED's on Amazon. They burnt out in no time – it began with an irritating flickering which drove me crazy. I also hated the light and I've gone back to incandescent for the time being. Definitely going to check out some of the alternative, higher-quality LED's. Great Video!

  19. No one asked you about ur quesadilla, vents, things to do at that park or delivery. You talk to much and ur an idiot!
