Expert Answers about Bright Ideas

  • Interior LED Trailer Lights That Won't Get Hot
  • LED lights such as # 277-000119 draw very little power so they do not get all that hot. They may be warm to the touch but not hot like a regular incandescent bulb. The LEDs in these lights have an aluminum structure around them to dissipate heat. This is shown in the video I have linked for you. For a similar light we have # CPL33C which also has a metal flange on the back which will help dissipate heat. I have linked a video of this light as well.

  • Lumen Output and Color Temperature of Bright Ideas Surface Mount Puck Light
  • The Bright Ideas 6-Light Surface Mount LED Puck Lights # 277-000119 has a lumen output of approximately 1200 and a color temperature of 3,500 degrees Kelvin. It does not have a switch of any kind. For the same light with a power switch use part # 277-000120. For a trim ring you can use # 277-000121 in black or # 277-000122 in white. It is able to be connected to a 12 volt dimmer switch that is designed for LED lights.

  • Mounting Hole Diameter on the Bright Ideas 18" Surface Mount LED Strip Light # 277-000166
  • I went out in our warehouse and grabbed a Bright Ideas 18" Surface Mount LED Strip Light # 277-000166 to measure the holes and found they are 3/16 of an inch and are 1 inch apart measured on center. The mounting holes do have metal sleeves ran through them, but I still wouldn't recommend using rivets as a way to secure the strip. Bolts and nut would be ideal.

  • LED Light Strip for Use on a Boat Trailer
  • LED light strip # 277-000169 is not really meant to go under water. It has bare wires on one end and a connector on the other end to plug in another strip so the potential for a short is high. I recommend something different such as # CM93296 which is waterproof and will hold up nicely being temporarily submerged on a boat trailer.
