thanks! did you use the larger ones or the little pucks? i like the little pucks but i wonder if they would be enough light for the kitchen. i know led's are bright though. I have tried to add a pic of the lights i want to replace. i think they are pretty standard low cost set. perhaps the low domes would be better for what i need than the pucks?

Hi Cyndi - I'm not very helpful when it comes to lighting, however, I just wanted to tell you I love the colour you painted the interior of your trailer. Did you use that colour to match the outside, or did you also just love the colour?

thanks. I didn't paint it, the entire interior was molded yellow fiberglass like the outside. It has grown on me. At first i hated it b/c it was way too much. I covered the floor in cork and that toned it down a lot so now it is not so overpowering. I like the yellow, i've been told people recognize me on the highway b/c there arent that many 'egg yolk yellow' ones. (that's what craig calls it)

swego.com Look at the Cabin lights. They have one model that is plastic with an on board on/off switch. I have them and they are fabulous!

Hi Cyndi, First a little info about L.E.D.'s. There are basicly 2 types of L.E.D. Modules to choose from - Narrow Beam & Wide Beam. Narrow Beam will give you the most light output but cover a smaller surface area so you have to use more 'Units.' Wide Beams will cover more area but won't put out as much brightness. It is best to determine what your needs are first, either ambient lighting or task lighting. You can often get Pucks at Wal-Mart that run off their own battery &/or wired. They are just a simple Peel & Stick application. If I remember correctly a pkg. of 3 Pucks was about $12.00. I have wired neon type L.E.D. lighting which is flexible & can be used for under counter or perimeter lighting applications. The light output is pretty good & available in various colours although in my opinion it isn't suitable for task lighting. For a few dollars the Wal-Mart variety may be worth a shot./Glen

I liked the 3rd one down (the warm ones are more like the original bulbs, while the 'cool' ones are more like florescent lights).
