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. 5 stars 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2015

    Excellent product and excellent customer service. I had to exchange because I ordered the wrong size

  2. Exceeded expectations 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Jul 2015

    Like the 18" T8 LED Tube Light the light output was much brighter than the fluorescent bulbs it replaced. I was a bit perplexed when the bulb didn't light until I noticed the bulbs had clearly marked polarity. When installed properly they worked great. Since installation, they've had many hours of failure free operation.

  3. Great investment 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2015

    I bought these because the drivers went out on several of my fixtures. This was by far less expensive than local RV stores and were easy to install. Mine had double tubes so I had to improvise some wiring but wife is happy so I'm happy.
    Thank You and I recommend this product very highly. I will be ordering more

  4. Worth the money! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jan 2015

    Went in great and such an improvement. So glad we switched over to LEDs. Steve was great and helped with what we needed. I have a Class A HR Imperial and so pleased with the change over. I was not sure the light would be better but WOW what a change. Don't let the price stand in your way of doing this.

  5. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2014

    Easy conversion. Do yourself a favor though and solder the connections to the old fixture rather than just use the wire nuts. I was pleased with how much light this bulb puts out. No more fighting with the fluorescent fixture to make it work. This is a great product.

  6. Install 5 Star Review

    Easy to install and they work great.

  7. fluorescent retrofit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Oct 2014

    these led's tubes seem to be much brighter than the cool white fluorescents they replaced. Installation was simple due to clear instructions. Overall handling of my order and shipping was exceptional. cannot say enough about M4 Products and their professionalism. it was a pleasure. looking forward to retrofitting my sister-in-law's rig.

  8. excellent conversion 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Sep 2014

    These new LED's are much brighter than the old fluorescents. I found the replacement to be quite easy. I did not use M4 instructions which I found difficult for a novice to understand but used the "RV geek's" video to replace the 12 inch tubes and it could not have been easier. Yes, it is easier to replace the 18 inch tubes, and I would like the additional light of an 18 inch tube, but I will NOT hesitate to replace my other 12 inch tubes with M4 conversions when those bulbs/ballast/transformers die.

  9. Need to replace ballast with another devise 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2014

    The lights work well. But the installation is much more tedious than the 18 inch units. I will only replace other fixtures if forced to. But will upgrade all the 18 inch units

    M4 Note: The LED driver that protects the LEDs in an RV environment needs to be external on the 12" tube due to size limitations. The driver is small, and has two wires in, and two wires out. Overall, the conversion is wired the same, it just adds this in between the wires to the tube as described in the details. Please see our instructions that are online at the link above in the description.

  10. T5 cool white LED replacement 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2014

    The LED tubes were shipped and arrived very quickly. The pricing and the shipping costs were low. Installation was easy, although I soldered the driver leads and used shrink tubing on the joints versus using the wire nuts. My old two 12" fluorescent tubes drew 1.07 amps versus .44 amps for the two LED's, and they appear to be much brighter. Since we boondock a lot anything to reduce the battery load is a benefit.
