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.

Wonderful replacement for the indirect lighting in our Airstream 290 even though the florescent fixture was broken. One wire connected each end and the bulb works perfectly.
Easy install really impressed but a little pricey.
It's been on my list to finish the fluorescent tubing conversions on my boat, and M4 not only had all of the lengths I needed, but provided excellent instructions for bypassing the ballasts. Everything worked the first time, the brightness and color are excellent, and our amp draw for 8 tubes is about 1/4 what it was before.
Had one of 4 T8-36-NW fail after 6 months. Contacted Steve who gave me a couple of troubleshooting tips. The tube still failed to light so Steve quickly shipped me a replacement at no cost. Could not be happier with Steve and M4 Products. Steve and M4 Products continues to be outstanding to work with. Can not go wrong with M4 products and Steve's support.
Replaced my old florescent lights in the kitchen dining area of my 2005 Monaco Camelot and WOW, what a difference with these 36" LED Tube lights. Steve, at M4 is easy to work with and is a wealth of knowledge. Shipping was quick, instructions were excellent and the installation was easy. New lights were much brighter, no flicker and no static on the AM radio. Can't say enough about the quality of the products from M4. Can't go wrong with these lights or M4 products.
The light is perfect for our motorhome. It lights up my kitchen like it was broad daylight. Love it!
I installed the new LED tubes yesterday and they work excellent.
The installation was easy-pezzy, just hooked the hot wire to one wire on "one end" of the tube, and the ground to one wire on the other end of the tube, and that was it.
They are much brighter tHan the old lights, and draw much less power.
I'm a happy camper for sure.
Changed out the old tube lights in my bathroom. WOW, what a difference! Easy wiring, one wire to each side of the fixture, mine has two separate fixtures. Thanks Steve
I replaced the four 36" florescent bulbs with LED tube lights, 4500K. Very easy to change out and eliminated the ballasts (one of which was bad). The light from the LED's are brighter and put out a more natural light. They are definitely worth the money. We now have most of the fixtures in our RV retrofitted with LED's and are very happy.
