The outside lights would have no effect on the trailer battery but would effect the TV battery. I think the greatest benefit to having LED outside lights is that they are more brilliant than incandescent lights and illuminate faster. You can replace bulbs with LED but you should use red LED bulbs rather than white, they show up better. Better yet, buy taillights with the LED built in.

Our 2310H came with LED lights all the way around. If you can't see the taillights you have to be blind.

Well oops! I missed the "outside" word. Outsides do not drain the coach battery, well except for the door light. But the LED's tail/stop/marker lights are brighter and last longer. Plus the brake and turn really visually "pop" when the turn off and on which may get others' attention. Not to mention the cool factor!

Thanks for all of your good words guys, we appreciate it.

RichR, we don't have a TV in RV yet so can't really grasp effect of LEDs. Can you explain? Is it like unfiltered flourescent interference? Does it make difference if TV is DC or AC powered?

Thanks.

Sorry, I meant TV to be tow vehicle. TV is the commonly used abbreviation.

Hi Red Baron!
Sorry it has taken a few days to get back to you. The Wisconsin group has not yet finalized the location, but that will be done soon, and I will provide the details. But it will be held for 2 nights of Sept. 9 and 10. We are excited that you and your wife will join us!! Will respond soon!!

Hi Red Baron,
As promised, I have information regarding the location of the camping get-together for the weekend after Labor Day. Please email me asap at mapastobb@hotmail.com since the sites are only being held for us for a few days. Thanks!

Default need instructions

My 22t lift cables need adjusting. When I lower top the front settles first. Do I need to have cables in slack position or can they be adjusted with tension still on the cables?
