I ordered 11 and replaced all of mine and I like them very much. They are just a tad dimmer than the 1141s, but about the same color and bright enough to read by.

I love the LEDs. Have five installed right now and five on back order.

They should start shipping this week, according to the website.

On March 15 I placed an order with LEDTrailerlights.com but have not received anything except the paypal conformation email. I requested an update a couple of weeks ago an did not receive a reply. I read something on the web page about a backorder but thought I should at at least receive an email confirming my order. Am I the only one with this problem?

Thanks

Apparently not. I've read posts from others on the other forum that have the same complaint. Apparently, we overwhelmed the owner with orders, and then he had to go out of town for family reasons.

Fortunately, I submitted my order early on and have received my lights.

Folks who know the owner say he is reliable and to be patient, you order will be filled as soon as the owner receives more lights from his supplier. Monitor the website for updates.

I ordered on March 17 which was much later than many who ordered. I'm certainly looking forward to receiving mine but probably the older orders are being filled first. Since the latest news is posted on their website, it's OK with me if I'm not personally notified of expected date of delivery. I'm sure my order will eventually reach the top of the list. Soon, I hope.:)

Several years ago I swapped out my lights with LEDs. These were "waffle cards" with 36 leds to a card. They were about 1/2 as bright as the incandescent lights so I began wiring two together. This has worked fine. About three years ago they came out with a card twice as bright with only 9 leds per card. I can now stay out 3-4 nights, using the furnace sparingly, with no fear of battery let down. My grown children call the trailer the "fish bowl" because of the color of the lights. I got mine from www.superbrightleds.com and had no problem with shipment.

I ordered my LEDs after the 'special' had expired but they still gave me the good price. This was over a month ago, they said they would send when available. I just received mine a few days ago and put a sample one in and it works fine. Slightly less bright than the standard bulbs but a nice soft white color.

I have some on order, and I emailed them the other day, and received an answer from Doug today. He said his next shipment will arrive around the 28th of this month.
