I put an LED bulb in my porch light, tried it and blinded everyone, and put the incandescent back in. Like baglo, we rarely use ours, and when we do, don't really want it blinding. Maybe to grab a beer out of the cooler when I didn't have my headlamp on me. It would be nice if there was one with a dim night light feature as well as full strength, like some interior ones have.

We have an amber cover we put on the porch light, bought from Little House Customs, that works well. The 21' standard porch light is LED. Maybe on the 5er also.

I have seen those amber covers from a distance before. Definitely way less glaring. I think that the bulb I got from superbrightled.com was just too bright for there, maybe the Escape one is not so bright. We rarely use our porch light though, even when real dark, as we can usually see enough to make out the white trailer, and if not usually carry headlamps/pen lights.

I got an amber bulb, but only the bugs could see it.

We let our amber lense go with the Casita. Will definitely be looking for one for the Escape. We weren't sure it was the same lense, anyway... although from this discussion it sounds like it may well be.

I emailed Escape today, and Crystal showed Reace the link to the light I posted above, and Reace said they could install that. Expensive, but just might be worth the weatherproofness and simplicity. Course, I never have seen one, so I might ought to see what they are like before I have them install it and then find out I hate them...

Black frame lights are standard.
