    3870 Salon Fluorescent Lights-gctid387548

    Several years ago, there was a post about the salon fluorescent lights around the windows. I think they came from a supplier in either Arizona or New Mexico. Only one of mine works and there is power to the other three. It must be the ballast, but it might be cheaper and easier to just replace the lights. Anyone know the supplier.

    Thanks,

    Allen

    Allen,

    I remember several posts from a few years ago where the poster had his rebuilt and provided a link to the company that rebuilt them. Do a search and I bet you will find it.. Depending on budget, replacing everything with LED's is a great way to go, more light and less battery use..

        I took the guts out of mine and replaced with 5 LED pannels with 48 LED's per pannel Much more light and the total cost was $15!

          Last time I repaired the fluro's I noticed they came from a company in L A California, however I agree with Bill if you have to spend money to replace them I would be going down the LED road and there has been numerous postings on that.

            More info please on brand & where you purchased.

            I think Thin-Light was the manufacturer of the original lights. They are available at most RV dealers.

                Thanks, all. I found the information. Rope lights seem to be the answer.

                  I bought rope lights from a place called CB comcepts on the net. They have everything you need to install except the screws. You can even get dimmers for them if you want. I haven't installed mine yet so don't know how bright they are, but will post when they are installed. I bought the plastic track to snap the rope lights into instead of using the mounting clips.
