Led bi pin bulbs

Does anyone know how many watt ETI uses in the bunk lights?

Are you trying to replace the bulbs, or possibly get some brighter or dimmer ones?

Many HALOGEN bi pin bulbs for puck lights are 10 watt, but the replacement lights that are LED (round disc the size of a quarter or so) draw less than a watt.

Note that pin thickness and spacing varies. You will need a micrometer to measure the existing pins and determine the pin spacing. I highly recommend M4 Products for LED lights for RVs. Quality product that lasts, and consistent color from one type of lamp to another, so if you go for warm white, its the same throughout, no matter the bulb. Same for daylight color.

They are 12 watt bulbs per the difficult to read lettering on the side. I replaced mine with 20 watt (12v/low voltage) landscape lighting bulbs (purchased at Lowes) for a little over $6 apiece. They are warm white and a little less harsh than the originals, a slight yellowish tinge perhaps.

To late for me to edit, but the landscape bulbs do not draw 20 watts; they are 20 watt equivalents and I think the packaging indicated they use 2-3 watts.
