This is a 12VOLT tube. Some RV and Boat fixtures (Thinlite) use a 120v florescent tube light which uses a ballast that converted 12vdc to 120v to light the light. With this light you must eliminate this troublesome ballast and just supply the tube with 12v power, positive to one end of the tube, ground to the other. A simple fixture rewire is required. Do not install these into a 120v environment or they will be damaged the the warranty void.
Rotatable End Caps so they will fit in fixtures with either horizontal or vertical sockets with a simple 90 degree twist of the end cap.

Easy switch on galley light ..just identify power & ground out of roof and bypass ballast- it will die eventually. Light value very good, easy to rotate ends to fit proper direction, either end pos or neg. Very good design. A must upgrade even if just your original tube just goes out.
I have electrical experience and the tubes were easy to fit for me. They work well. These tubes are not cheap but I do not know if they are expensive either. So far, I am very pleased.
I replaced 2 fluorescent tube lights over our RV kitchen area. My wife loves bright light and the are a very bright with white light but still easy on the eyes with the frosted glass tube. I highly recommend them and they draw about half of the watts of Fluorescent tubes that they replaced. These were real watts that were measured using a very accurate battery monitor system that use a ground shunt. Love these lights. If your looking for a softer light with a slight yellowish hue, I would order the same lights in the natural white light, 4500K
It was just what I needed. No one else had it. Came quick. Very well boxed. Exceptionally pleased.
good fit. almost too bright. I should of went with a 5000k lamp!
I recieved these they are well labeled and have easy to understand instructions. Quality well designed product. Definitely as described with reasonable shipping and delivery.
Conversion was quick and straightforward. Really impressed by the quantity of light.
Having replaced my florescent bulbs in my kitchen light so many time I lost track, I decided to go with the M4 Tube light replacements. Ordering was easy, arrived when I thought they would, and installation was a piece of cake. Chocolate to be exact!!! Now I've ordered another set to replace the other set of lights in the kitchen and expect the same results. As soon as I can I'll replace more lights throughout the RV. Great product!!!
