So, of course, a new complete lamp has to be purchased as they don't sell the cover on its own. It comes with around a foot of wire attached , complete with bullet connectors. However I was informed by Jandi that the only way to get at the bullet connectors was to strip out the kitchen lockers! I felt this was rather drastic so hit upon disconnecting the old wire at the light fitting, stripping out the new wire and reconnecting the old wire to the new fitting. That worked a treat and the new and flexible fitting went on with no issues at all.
Top Tip, Andy. Thanks.

Being a new to the Eribafolk forum I am reading all sorts of posts to feed my interest.

The post discussing chandeliers made me chuckle - I have the vision of Grandad and Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses being employed to change the awning light for some magnificent chandelier.

I've just fitted some LEDs and your spot on the bulkhead bolts do get in the way. Instead of cutting the bolts I have just left the bulbs resting against them - they seem to be working ok. However, I also fitted LEDs in the two spot lights and part of the reason for this was to stop them getting so hot. To my surprise the LEDs spot light bulbs also get hot (although not a hot as the tungsten type) should I expect this?

Hi I have replaced the bulbs in my lights in my triton 420gt with led bulbs from Ultra LEDS which fit without any modification and give a great light and as they are led don't get hot like a normal bulb. Don't get the cool light bulbs as they have a bluish light the warm bulbs are the ones to go for. Check out the web site if it is of help. http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/g4-48-led-war...-360-lumen.html

Update to this topic back in 2014 I bought some led bulbs from
And they worked and still are working very well in my Triton

Earlier this week I ordered some more identical ones to go in some other lights in the van

What they sent me was a load of crap in plain white boxes with the name scrubbed out with a black felt tip marker
The first two I tried burned out in less than 5 min the next two I tried flickered so badly I had to turn them off

What really pee's me off is ever since then I have been recommending them to other members ............... hopefully this will set the record strait.

The top box in the picture shows the original ones and the bottom box what they sent me this week

I have had to do a 20 mile round trip to get some ordinary G4 bulbs for my awning light and I'n not best pleased as you can imagine.

So if you buy bulbs from http://www.ultraleds.co.uk be prepared not to get what you ordered.

The first time I ever stayed on campsites in Western France, this was in the sixties,we met lots of French families who were living on the sites during the summer season whilst they let their homes to holidaymakers.One of these Mamans showed us how to cook Moules Mariniers in our pressure cooker, one of that holidays revelations,my Mum used to bring tins of M&S Stewed Steak and Chicken Supreme, which was very good but the Moules were fantastic and so exotic.In those days we were campers, hiring our tents from Townsend Thoresen who ran the ferries.

At this particular site was a mens urinal, up against the wall of the communal all sexes washroom,around it was a waist high wall. I remember a little English girl from two caravans up walking passed, only the top half of my Dad was visible,and calling over , "Hello Uncle Bill, are you filling up your kettle?' and he replied "No I'm emptying it!"

At one of these sites we saw a huge family arrive in a meubling removal van, which looked as if they had brought all their home furniture, and proceeded to holiday in that. Camping families also had fridges with them, canaries and rabbits in hutches,some had small portable fences with plastic flowerbeds, TV's and fluorescent blue lights to attract and zap the flies, it was fascinating to me as to date all the camping I had done was in the scouts, cooking on open fires, with wet pits etc.

When we arrived at a new site it was my brothers job to check out the loos and washing facilities, he would rush back and advise us they were all squattez -vous, as he called them.Some of the sites on the cote d'Azur had a bank H Van Citroen that came round each morning.I also remember a fishmonger hawking round "Pulpo, Pulpo" octopus, he would cut the beak off and whack out the ink manually on his builders wheelbarrow, we also learned how to cook that.

Very happy days, I still think that no other country does camping like the French.

Apologies if it has been covered before but I am trying to remove a washroom light in my Triton in order to replace the bulb. I have read the handbook about pressing the lense next to the lugs but cannot get any purchase to pull as stated. Anybody completed this task?
