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. 

4500k Natural White.  For 6000k Cool White see part number T5-Tube-CW.  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. Brighten up the RV 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th May 2019

    Replaced 12 inch florescent bulbs with LED. Instruction were good and YouTube video really helped. LED is much brighter. Have only used a small amount so will see how things go in next 6 months

  2. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Apr 2019

    Starting to convert as many lights as I can in my Airstream Travel Trailer and found these bulbs. They were very easy to install and the finished look is almost identical to the original look. Unless you look really close you would think that they were the original Florescent bulbs. The brightness was almost a perfect match also. Very pleased with the product. A little pricey to switch over but I will never have to replace the bulbs again.

  3. What a Difference 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2019

    changed over 8 double bulb lights fixtures after 1st one rest went fast. Took a little longer having to drill rivets out for ballast coverbut what a difference in light. after taking ballast out can see why drains batter so fast. thank you

  4. Thin-lite tube to LED 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2019

    12" tube to LED somewhat labor intensive. There are other LEDs at a lower price but previous contact/presention weighed in decision to purchase.
    YouTube series by RVGeeks aided greatly with install.
    To increase space I removed the ballast which did give added room to tuck away the necessary wires. Also, I used a couple of automotive ties to help tidy wires for convenient ballast cover replacement.

    M4 Note: You can preview the instructions on our site. In a nutshell, for each tube there are four wires to connect to a driver. Two out, black and red, one to each end of the tube. Two in connect the the two coming into the fixture, through the switch if you have one. Do one tube at a time to simplify it.

  5. Fulfilled all expectations. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2018

    Easy install if you watch the RVGeeks YouTube video 1st. Bright, instant-on lights. Will order more as my fluorescents burn out.

  6. Really nice lighting! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2018

    A little more work to install but if you follow the video listed on the website it’s a plece of cake.

  7. 12" LED Bulbs are great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2018

    Brought replacement bulbs to convert my old florescent ones. These LEDs are much brighter and very clean light. Keep up the great quality.

  8. 12" LED Replacement for fluorescent bulb in rv 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2018

    Installation was a little more complicated but as long as you take your time and read the directions it will be okay.

  9. pretty good product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Oct 2018

    Of course my fixture was not an easy one. I had to drill out 4 rivets to get to the transformer. The cover covered the entire interior. Barely enough room under cover for all the wires. I should have shortened them for an easier fit. Ordered the midrange brightness, it was perfect. I have to do 2 more it should be a breeze.

  10. What the doctor ordered. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2018

    I’m very happy with the M4 LED tubes we bought to replace the flourescent tubes in our RV. I bought both warm white and natural white and both provide very good lighting with no flickering. The natural white is bright and “airy” and the warm white provides a comfortable, cozy ambience. Although these have been operational for only a few weeks, I’m confident I’ll be saying the same thing further on down the road. M4 replacement LED tubes appear to be the answer.
