Led lights

I have an 18 MS 38rssa. One of my bathroom led lights went out. Are you guys using the original style of lights or have you found a better kind of light?

I replaced all of mine with Falcon puck lights. Fit in the same hole. They have spring clips to hold them in, but they had holes for screws. I removed the spring clips and used the screws from the old lights. I got tired of replacing those Command Electronics circuit boards. It’s only been 2 months since I replaced them so too soon to tell. But I like the light ares spread on these.

All of the reviews I read were positive except for one who claimed the lights dimmed when he flushed his tecma toilet while on battery. I installed one, turned off the AC at the pedestal and tried it myself. No problem.

As John pointed out, the Falcons will do pretty good job for you. We used two packs of these some years ago in or Raptor.

Can I just replace the board or do I have to replace the whole light fixture?

You can replace just the LED boards. I bought some from Command Electronics. As the old ones start flickering I’ll be replacing them with the new boards.

I called Command Electronics and explained what was happening. I was asked to send a picture of the circuit board. I did and they said it was part of a bad batch and sent me 50 replacement boards N/C. I was replacing on an as needed basis. Ticked me off that I was replacing some boards 2 and 3 times. I called them again and they sent me 25 more. They still kept failing. My search then began for a replacement light altogether and found the Facon lights.

5050, I'm guessing at your post.
"So, how are these lights? I need to replace the 3 clip dim ones over the center of the coach. They don’t want to be bright, I need just the lower watt ones. Any suggestions or just go with the Falcon?"
I also post sometimes with the IPhone, but just a little punctuation helps when we're trying to read a post.

They are the low light over sink in center of the RV they only have 3 little crystals so they are just accent lights the ones that pop up when you search for them have 6-9 led crystals in them that’s what I was asking the falcon light is it replacement to go with
