    I need a replacement lamp/bulb for one of the interior lights in mt RV.

    It has the following identifcaton on it:

    Hi Bryan

    If they are like mine they are just standard 12v x 21w indicator/flasher lamps


    PS

    Bulbs go in the ground:Laughing: :Laughing:

    you nit-picking Jim,:Rofl1:

    we all know if it goes in the ground its a bulb,
    if its a load of garlic cloves its a bulb,
    if it gives off light its a bulb,
    if you're an anorack its a lamp,
    and in some countries, its a GLOBE. no answer to that one.:Eeek:

    if youre a sparky its a lamp,
    if youre a mechanic its a bulb.

    who... meeee .. nah.. pedantic maybe .. but BULBS go in the ground .. end of

    If I had gone to the store as an apprentice and asked for a dozen bulbs I'd have been sent to the garden centre .. and had long weight .. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    But were you ever sent for a glass hammer?
    A bag of rubber bolts?
    A set of left-handed spanners?

    Ah, the joys of apprenticeship! :Doh:

    None of you have picked up on the obvious
    Uk bulbs/lamps/globes will give out European light:Sad:
    Is this acceptable, or even suitable for an American RV:Doh:
    Bryan I would be worried, very worried:Eek!:

    Ohh yes, I have very fond memories, best days of my life :BigGrin:

    Tartan paint

    Sky hooks

    Long stands

    Left handed screw driver

    and a grumpy old storeman called .. Hinny Owny , (haven't any)
    so called because it was his 'stock answer' when it was out of stock.. :Laughing:

    As Geo says - European lamps are a bit different - I mean will they dip to the left or right - even inside the RV?

    Will they appreciate that they have to work on an American switch which is in the switched off position when compared to a European Van. Will you have to switch them off in order to switch them on? :Eeek:

    I'd go for broke and change the RV instead - much easier.

    theres a bloke on ebay sells converters for european light.....

    its a little sock you slip over the bulb/lamp/globe and it turns EU light into US light. (makes it a little dimmer:Rofl1:)

    only works on a certain wavelength so it wont convert US to EU light.

    so now you've all been enlightened. :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Yeah, I heard about them too but I was told they made the lamp light bulb too hot so that they burnt out a lot quicker than normal.

    Apparently it was a scam put forward by an electric company trying to get over the credit crunch!

    And why are globes always spherical when everyone knows that the Earth is an oblate spheroid?
