Converting RV Lights to LEDs — PART 3 — 18″ Fluorescent Tubes

Convert your RV’s fluorescent bulbs to LEDs! It’s easy and we’ll show you how. We switched our incandescent and halogen lights to LEDs and now we’re converting our fluorescent fixtures too.

Our previous videos about LEDs have generated so much interest that we wanted to share the details about the new way we’re upgrading our fixtures. This video covers the steps needed to convert 18″ fluorescent tubes to beautiful new LEDs.

If you saw our original video about converting our RV’s fluorescent lights to LEDs (if not, you can view it here: http://youtu.be/SAMPQrAu0aI ), you may have noticed that it was quite a while before we shared any more tips about switching to LEDs.

The reason for that is because we were experimenting with converting our RV’s other lights (halogen, incandescent and even other fluorescent light options). But it was a bit frustrating, since options for LED color and brightness can be confusing, and many suppliers don’t accurately convey the information you need to choose the color temperature and brightness you want.

Then we heard about a company on the iRV2 discussion forums called M4 Products. The information on their website was really thorough, and the owner’s fast, detailed response to our questions made us confident that his lights would be the right color and brightness.

After so much trial & error, buying from M4 was the best experience we’ve had so far. Since we were heading toward southern California, where M4 is located, we made an appointment to stop by to see about upgrading more of our lights.

Being a fellow RVer, Steve, M4’s owner, was incredibly knowledgeable about LED applications for RVs, and the quality of his products was obvious. We’ve looked at, and tried, our fair share of LED bulbs, and Steve’s are the best quality and best value we’ve found so far.

Full-Time RVers since April 11, 2003, we share DIY (do it yourself) RV maintenance, repair, travel, upgrade and operational tips & tricks.

While we’re not RV technicians, we’re very mechanically inclined and have learned a lot about RV systems over the years. We’ve handled most of our own minor service, maintenance and upgrade work on both of our RVs.

We meet lots of newer RVers who are eager to learn some basics about using, maintaining and caring for their rigs. After more than a decade on the road, we’re happy to share what we’ve learned (some of it the hard way). ;-) We hope our experience can help other RVers go DIY, saving time & money while experiencing the satisfaction of a job well done. We’re handy RVers, not professional technicians. We’re happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you’re unsure about working on your RV. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.

We sometimes receive products for evaluation at no cost, but our opinions are our own and we only feature products we personally use, love and can recommend to friends with complete confidence.

How to make a WATER-cooled LED light (DIY SUN BLASTER 2.0)

In this video we’ll be making an insanely bright water-cooled LED light that looks remarkably similar to sunlight!
This is because it uses a high quality LED from Yuji which as a high colour rendering index (CRI). Since its completion this project has been used to light every single one of my videos! It’s just that good!

DIY $35 LED Grow Light

Starting to build some new grow lights and experiment with different LED lighting, here is the new hood design using LED strip lights. These strip lights have come down quite a bit and there are now so many U.S. and China made LED’s products out there to try. This is a pretty low powered light so I know it is not going to be equal to the 1000w HID lights but still useful for what I am doing here. I plan to do some side by side comparisons between this light, my CFL lights, and a T5 light down the road but either way I am going to be using these new hoods moving forward. They look way better and are lighter and much safer than my old ones.

Lawyer for Imprisoned Whistleblower Chelsea Manning: Ongoing Pattern of Abuse Led to Hunger Strike

http://democracynow.org – We speak with Chase Strangio, lawyer for imprisoned Army whistleblower Chelsea Manning, about the hunger strike she launched Friday to protest her prison conditions. In a statement, Manning said she would only consume water and medication until she’s provided “minimum standards of dignity, respect, and humanity.” She’s demanding a written promise from the Army that she will receive medically prescribed recommendations for her gender dysphoria. Manning is serving a 35-year sentence in the disciplinary barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. She has been subjected to long stretches of solitary confinement and denied medical treatment related to her gender identity. Strangio is a staff attorney at the ACLU who represents Chelsea Manning in a lawsuit against the Department of Defense.

Islamic terror? Chinese forces kill 28 foreign-led ‘terrorists’ after massive manhunt – TomoNews

XINJIANG, CHINA — Chinese forces have killed 28 “terrorists” they claim were responsible for a deadly knife attack at a coal mine in Xinjiang in September, authorities announced on Friday.

The deceased were reportedly a group of knife-wielding assailants who attacked a coal mine in Aksu, Xinjiang, in September. During that attack, 16 people were killed and 18 people were injured, authorities said.

Free Radio Asia reported at the time that the assailants rammed trucks loaded with coal into the police vehicles, before fleeing into the mountains. Five police officers were among the fatalities.

In the aftermath of the attack, authorities launched a manhunt that lasted for 56 days, in which 10,000 people had participated. The operation ended when one assailant surrendered and 28 others were killed, Xinjiang Daily reported.

Free Radio Asia reported that women and children were among the suspects killed in the raid, which has not been verified by the authorities.

The authorities did not disclose the full identities of the “terrorists”, apart from the two leaders who appeared to have Uighur names. Authorities also claimed the gang was under the command of a foreign extremist group.
