life is important to those of us who boondock often. Interest in LED lighting
as a way to extend our time out appears to be high. Complaints about the low light level and cold color of several of the LED interior light options have perhaps kept folks from trying them.
I find that sailors are a great source of information because their sailboats are really just fiberglass
trailers without wheels or a tow vehicle. They are searching for solutions to many of the same problems that trailer owners are.
My brother, a dedicated sailor, sent me this in response to a question I had about LEDs.
"Practical Sailor had a brief review of an LED replacement for boat cabin lights
. It's made by Sailor's Solutions and is called the Sensibulb. They liked it because it had a warm, golden light and ample for berth lights when used to replace halogens. The light was not quite as intense as a 10-watt halogen but it consumes .18 amps as opposed to 1.5 for the old halogen (apparently it replaced an 18-watt halogen?). It's $40 and fits a standard halogen socket or a standard 12-V bayonet socket with a $2 adapter. Check www.sailorssolutions.com."

I have not seen these lights and they are more expensive than others mentioned on MFROG, but perhaps their characteristics would make them worthy of a look.
