RV Lighting Questions

  • The lens on the RV Oval Porch and Utility Light # RVPL5A is held to the housing with some tabs on the lens that fit slots on the housing. To remove the lens you will need something thin and flat like a knife or small screwdriver to gently pry the lens free. The tabs on the lens are located at the top and bottom of the lens so to avoid breaking then start gently prying on the sides of the lens until you can see the tabs well enough to avoid them. The lens can be snapped right...

  • The LED RV Interior Light, # ILL31CB, runs off of a 12 volt DC system. It actually draws 0.107 amps at 12.8 volts. It will not work on a 110 volt AC system. This light is a surface mount light meaning the light will not be flush with the wall or ceiling once installed, it will stick out some. But part of the light from the mounting surface will need to be recessed into the wall. I would do at least 2 rows of 3 running the length of the trailer. A better option for a true surface...

  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled an RV Euro Style Interior Single Ceiling Light with Built-In Switch, # RVIL21, to determine how the lens is removed. There are 4 tabs, 1 at each corner, that hold the lens onto the base. You will want to squeeze in on the sides of the lens and pull back at the same time in the direction away from the switch. The lens will slide back allowing the tabs to clear the base and the lens can be removed giving you access to the bulb. I found the...

  • You should check out the part # AR51267. This is a very similar light that has a dimmer switch on it that allows you to control just how bright you want it to be. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • It should not be too much trouble at all to replace the light in your trailer with a new one such as # 277-000114. If you take off the lenses you will see the mounting hardware. You will likely need to cut the wiring to completely free the light. I would cut it as close to the light as you can so that you have enough free wire to work with. It would probably be a good idea to disconnect the trailer battery prior to cutting the wiring to avoid getting a shock or shorting something...

  • The 921 bulbs are easier to come by than the 912. For a 921 you can use # A921B. For the 912 there is only an LED option, # AR50610. The 912 bulb is polarity sensitive so if it doesn't work take it out and turn it 180 degrees and reinsert it.

  • For maximum brightness out of an interior trailer light I would go with the part # ILL08COB. The raw lumen output rating is 1400 lumen. The effective lumen output rating is 990 lumen. This will be a VERY bright interior light. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • No problem. If your existing trailer interior lights use a 1-wire hookup this means they use their mounting hardware to make the ground connection and the single lead is the +12V feed. Adding more high-efficiency LED lights with 2 wires will only require you to run that separate (white) ground wire to a suitable metal surface on the trailer (such as the surface the existing light are mounted to). The linked page will display all LED type interior white lights suitable for use...

  • Good news, I can help pick out led lights for your livestock trailer. My favorite interior light that I would recommend for you is the part # ILL08COB. This light is super bright and since it uses LEDs instead of incandescent bulbs it hardly draws any amperage as well. Which means you can run it on either the auxiliary power circuit or the taillight circuit on your trailer without worrying about overloading the circuit. This style of light doesn't come with a switch on...

  • Your outside lights are working because they are attached to the running light circuit on the vehicle. It sounds to me as if the 12 volt circuit in your connector is not wired properly or is not present. I would check the connector on the vehicle with a circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, for a constant 12 volt circuit. If you find a 12 volt circuit in the vehicle side connector then you will need to figure out which circuit on the trailer connector goes to the inside lighting....

  • I went out into our warehouse and pulled an RV Euro Style Interior Double Ceiling Light # RVIL22 and was able to come up with a couple ways to remove the lens on this product. Check out the video I put together for you that shows the different ways you can remove the lens. The lens on this product is not super easy to remove, but if you apply force in the right directions it will come off. I also attached a review video for this product for you to check out also.

  • The Optronics LED Rectangular Interior and Exterior Light, # ILL22CB, measures approximately 4.5 inches x 2.75 inches x 1 inch with an effective output of 810 lumens. I have attached an info sheet for you. I spoke with my contact at Optronics and they do not have a similar light available with a lumen range of 250 - 350. My recommendation would be to install the # ILL22CB and a rheostat. A rheostat adjusts the resistance, which reduces the amount of circuit that gets to the...

  • The bulb that comes with the Gustafson RV Sidewall Light # 277-000254 is not an LED, but you can replace it with an LED bulb if you choose to. It is compatible with a 912 or 921 size bulb so you can use the Starlights LED Wedge Base Lamp # 277-000102 for an LED option.

  • The # RVSL21 Scare light uses an 1156 replacement bulb that is widely available. We carry this bulb also, part # 30-90-156. These bulbs have two posts that slide into slots in the socket and then you turn the bulb approximately 1/4 to 1/2 turn to lock it into the socket. There should be 2 wires going to the bulb socket. One will attach to the bulb base for ground and the other will attach to the center of the base at the bottom for power to the bulb.

  • I looked up the dimensions of your Liteco 179 interior light and the closest thing we have to it would be the part # ILL06COB which will be 11 inches by 4 inches. Your current light is 19-1/2 inches by 6-1/2 inches so this would be a bit smaller but the LED lights of this kit would provide a great deal of lighting.

  • Yes, the Gustafson RV Vanity Light # 277-000324 will work for you and would be operated by the switch you have on the wall.

  • We do offer some replacement parts for RV lighting products from Gustafson, items like bulbs an shades, but not parts like sockets and wiring. These can be sourced from a local electrical or lighting supply. Gustafson does not offer such items to consumers since they do not expect their customers to be doing more than installing a light in place of another. You may well find it is actually more cost-effective just to replace the whole fixture than to go through the trouble...

  • In order to wire the Gustafson RV Vanity Light part # 277-000324 to an electrical switch on an RV you will first want to obtain a few items: wire stripers, wire nuts, and electrical tape. Once you have these three items you can begin to install the vanity lights. There are two wires coming from the back of each light on this vanity light for a total of 6 wires. One is for the ground and the other is for the power. You will want to begin by attaching one wire from each light...

  • The bulbs that come with the part # 277-000324 are 921. I attached a picture that shows just the bulbs and you can see the 921 printed on them.
