    I'm looking to replace the bulbs in my MH with LEDs. I have 10W bulbs at present with a 4mm pin pitch. The majority of LEDs I have seen have a 5mm pin pitch. Has anyone had any trouble fitting these? I assume I have standard light fittings (2006 Autocruise Starfire).

    standard LED bulbs are available that are exact pin equivalent. there really are only a few variations, so its pretty straight forwards

    no problems changing to LEDs from halogen
    the pins are flexible enough to accommodate any difference in pitch-you wont regret the switch to LED

    We have just replaced our lights to LED's from Aton lighting in Melton Mowbray, cost dash £7.49 but if you buy a large amount they give you a discount, we bought 16 cost £100 with discount. They will be at Lincoln finale motorhomes show
