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.
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.

Easy Install, use wire nuts or solder and heat wrap, I have used the 12" and 24" kits and been happy with both. Both lengths can be turned for more or less light, I like the cool white for overall lighting in RV.
Although many time more expensive than just replacing with conventional tubes, the LED conversion proved to be brighter and uses less battery power. Both a welcome improvement, longevity yet to be determined. Very happy with this product.
The RV Geeks video helped me best for my particular light. Once I figured out which wires went where, the process went pretty quick. The light output is awesome. Instant on! No delay or warm up time like the fluorescent had. I will continue the replacement process throughout my RV:)
Tech support and products both fantastic we upgraded fluorescent fixtures on our boat very straight forward
Great company to deal with. Fast shipping
Great product! Easy install and brite white light. We converted all in our motor home.
My 2008 Arctic Fox TT has 1 fixture that uses this bulb. I'm not an electrician, but that has never stopped me from attempting to do my own electrical work where it makes sense to do so. Since we are talking DC voltage my stress levels were lower. I contacted Steve at M4 and he is great at walking you through the modifications using the provided instructions. My lights are working properly with the new T5 LED's and I am very satisfied!
Great product, easy to install!!
I bought 4 of these to start and was impressed with the ease of installation. At first they wouldn't light but, I turned the bulbs end for end the way the instructions said to and they worked perfectly. So, I bought 6 more.
