Awning light - conversion to LED

If your van uses one of those awning lights, which is rectangular, uses 2x 12v 10w bulbs and has a self contained switch. Lamps with the same base as is commonly used for car 5w tail light bulbs, you can easily convert then to LED equivalent to 2x21w with these...

They are much brighter, whiter and obviously use 1/5 of the power than the old lamps. You just tease off the cover gently, it might be brittle due to UV. I also found the cover on mine was quite badly discoloured due to either UV action or heat from the lamps. The discolouration was easily fixed by scrubbing the cover with a Brillo type pad.
