    Hi there,
    I own a 2012 elddis autoquest 145 the main living quarters lights are LED but the spot lights around the sides are halogen, does anyone know if I can get retrofit LED lamps to replace them? How much they are? And where to to get them from

    Thanks

    Yes. All halogen spots can, and should, be replaced by LEDs. They can be found anywhere selling a reasonable range of LED lightbulbs. You just need to find out what type they are (i.e. MR16/MR11/G4 etc.). G4 can be a bit more hit and miss, but the MR types usually just fit.

    Replacements using 5050 SMD modules are a good choice. 3W are good for most motorhome applications. Match the colour temperature with those you've already got. Warm white is a lot less harsh, although some prefer pure white for reading or because they think it looks more modern.
