This is a LED retrofit light for 12" Florescent Tube Lights.  Due to the size of these smaller tube lights, an external driver is provided.  This driver converts 10-30v DC RV power to a clean 12v DC power for long tube life.  Other brands of retrofit tube lights have a wire and the driver hanging out the side of the tube, we choose to provide the driver separately and we utilize the natural pins on the end of the tube for power for a much cleaner looking installation.  Since the driver occupies the space of your previous ballast, you will never see the wires or driver while looking up at your fixture. 

6000k Cool White.  For 4500k Natural White see part number T5-Tube-NW.  Though not as popular, this tube is also available in 3200k Warm White part number T5-Tube-WW for those that want a Warmer Look.

You will need basic 12vDC wiring skills to install these tubes, or have them professionally installed.  Wiring is basic, each driver gets a positive and negative wire connected, and each driver has a positive and negative wire that need to be connected to the end of each tube.  View the full detailed installation instructions here  Not recommended to be used near HAM radio or in close proximity to sentive radio or tv equipment.

  1. Easy install 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd May 2018

    I found the M4 Youtube video closely mirrored the provided instructions and made the whole install/conversion a VERY easy process.

    M4 Note: Just a quick note, the video you found is probably made by TheRVGeeks and featured M4 tubes. Great to hear it helped though!


  2. LED beats flourescent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2018

    Easy and safe to install. DC polarity needs to be observed, otherwise existing switches and fixture can be used. Probably not for the complete idiot to install but an 8th grade understanding of electricity is all that's needed for this quick and easy replacement repair or upgrade. The proof will be if it endures the bumps and bangs of road life and slide out manipulation.


  3. Brightens the trailer incredibly 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2018

    Amazing how such a little tube can change the inside of an RV. Replaced all my 12v overhead fixtures with these lights and made a huge difference in the ability to see, read and clean. Not the easiest installation, but well worth it.


  4. Modification was simple. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th May 2018

    Modified my standard 12V ballast lights to the LED tubes and it was a simple process. I replaced 4 tube bulbs in 2 fixtures--took me about 35 minutes total--it would have been less but I had to drill out 2 rivets where the old ballast was. All of the lights on my 41' Tuscany have now been converted to LED and my power consumption has hit rock bottom. It's incredible really. We can boon-dock for 3+days and never need to run the generator. The whiter light is much more to our liking and the fixtures don't get burning hot like they did before. Awesome products.


  5. happy 5 Star Review

    installation fairly easy - results truly amazing. most difficult part was removal of old ballast- and that wasn't difficult


  6. Quick and easy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Mar 2018

    I am pleased with this product and happy with my purchase. I was a little anxious with the added work of wiring in the driver for the 12" build, but after reviewing the enclosed instructions and watching a YouTube video, it was a quick and easy install. One note; would be cool if a "+" and "-" sticky were included in the kit in the event the bulbs are removed after install, without making note of which direction they were as these 12" bulbs are like batteries and need to go in the correct direction. But without the sticky, a sharpie works fine. Will add, the guys at m4 are very supportive if you need their assistance with anything.


  7. Great replacement bulbs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Mar 2018

    This project requires rewiring the existing fixure. Each bulb has a driver that takes the variable voltage from your RV and provides a steady 12 volts DC. Just follow the easy instruction sheet that comes with your bulbs. I highly recommend M4 and their products. Reliable service and products!


  8. 12V LED 12" tube 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    Converted 12 V fluorescent to 12V LED in my RV.. Bulbs and drivers were hooked up just as M4 recommended and Boo Yah!!! Lights work perfectly. So I just ordered 12 of the 18 inch tubes to convert remaining RV ceiling lights. Quality of the bulbs were exceptional!
    I will continue to use M4 in the future.


  9. Too soon to rate the product BUT 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2017

    I called and talked with Steve who was quite patient and talked me through the details of tube bulb installation requiring a bit of rewiring. That all went smooth. However, I then realized there was no power coming to the light switch (thought the previous bulb just burned out and I was converting to LED).
    So - when I remedy getting power to the light switch I'll be able to evaluate the bulb performance.

    If the bulbs workout, that will be a product and company worth recommending. Stay tuned.


  10. Great replacement. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2017

    These bulbs are much brighter. Seem to be cooler to the touch.
