Looking at LED outside floods. ? Good? Bad? It has 750 watt 120 v now. Needs some input please.
I replaced all the interior 12 V lighting with LED. Very happy so far..

I did a modification to get these lights from Jegs. They no longer make these lights. But here is what I did. I also set the lights up so when I put the truck in reverse the back and rear side lights also go on. It set up with some relays and they are all made to switxch on one by one.

Really good thinking with the reverse lights turning them on. I like it. The hardest part of installing the little ones I used was running the wires. I like those long fixtures too.

I was thinking of getting flood pattern 50" light bars and using them...two or three along the side of the trailer. Can install mounts along the top rail and easily remove the lights....still undecided though...

I have had these for about 5 years now. They fit right in and have a plug that plugs right into the normal light bulb terminals. Took 2 min to install the first one and way less for the other 3.

I went through 2 sets of those, one bulb didnt last and I didnt feel they were bright enuff. Switched to the Solara ones and its basically like night and day .

While doing some trailer upgrades and repairs I replaced the 8' lights with the costco 4' LED motion sensor with remote control. x3 Turned out really nice! very bright and totally adjustable. I kike that I can leave the switch on, walk in and they are on. Has time feature too. Replaced all 12 volts with LED! Nice!! Next are the floods. Ramp door broke a torsion spring, ordered from 365 Garage doors...Nobody local will sell just spring assy! They want to do a service call and replace it all. I am hands on and not cheap but really! 650 bucks vs 60!

Those Solara's are bad to the bone. I even have them at the house. Went right into the buckets.
Electric bill came down 28.00 a month.

On the Solara ones how do you know which ones to buy? They have 3000 cool white 5000 etc which ones are best for our trailers to light up the pit area? Thanks

On my new house and shop I will be using LED exclusively. Much better lighting, cheaper to operate and I like the brightness and color of the light. Plus they last longer than typical lights so in long run will be cheaper.
I have already converted much of the lights in my trailers to LED.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.
