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.
3200k Warm White. Warm Tube are not as common, but some like the extra warmth of this kelvin range. For 6000k Cool White see part number T5-Tube-CW or for 4500k Natural White see part number T5-Tube-NW.
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.

The warm white tone and frosted make these a perfect replacement. No bright abnormal white light. Using them in the bedroom and under the counter. Easy to replace so the coach lights looks stock but with the efficiency of LEDs.
The instructions were easy to follow. Am going to be upgrading entire coach now.
We love the warm light output and how quick it was to wire in the separate drivers. M4's directions were easy to follow (although it probably helped that I'd seen the RV Geek's video of how they did their rewiring). Highly recommended.
I bought this product (warm white LED tube) to replace fluorescent tubes in my RV and was not sure if the light temperature was correct. Well, in short, I am delighted with the warm, cozy feel this light produces. Although I have had limited opportunity to test this product - a week here and there - when i did, it worked just fine with no flickering. I think this is the answer to limited power draw from batteries in situations where no external power is available. I also bought natural white tubes and likewise, they are working very well. They provide a brighter feeling light than their “warm” counterparts, which is what we wanted. I’m quite happy with the performance of M4 products. I have a feeling I’ll still be saying the same thing a few years from now.
Upgraded all of my RV interior lights with LED from M4. I am extremely happy with the results, lighting is far better than the original light bulbs. The most difficult part of the entire project was getting two (married) people to agree on the color ranges to use and where to put them.
after using the cool white bulb in the bathroom, which is brighter but o k for the bathroom i installed the warm white bulb in the main area which was just a little brighter than the original but i was interested in power consumption so everything is o k. however i would like the bulb to be a little brighter
M4 Note: Natural White is in the middle of Warm and Cool. Brighter than Warm visually, but not as sterile as Cool. Warm 3200k, Natural 4500k, Cool 6000k, we have all three.
Exactly what we were looking for but couldn't find anywhere. Easy to install with the directions provided. Warm white light is so much nicer than the old cool white tubes.
Very happy with the M4 service and will definitely use them again.
Instructions were easy to follow. I'm happy with the product and the color of the light. I ordered more.
Easy to install. Color is nice warm white.
I only used one bulb in the fixture and it is plenty bright.
Ordered two 12" LED T5's to check them out. The "blubs" were received very quickly. The printed instructions were easy to follow. I I had them installed in a matter of minutes. Happened so quickly, my wife thought something must be wrong. They worked great. Ordered four more T5's two days ago. Received this evening, already installed and working great. We are very pleased with the output. Brighter than the florescent bulbs at a quarter of the power.
