Lights interior 2001 Mainship 390

Does anyone know of a conversion for Mainship 390 original equipment interior lights to updated new energy efficient light bulbs or light fixtures.

First off, welcome to the forum Alto. Generally bulbs can just be changed for almost any existing light fixture to LEDs. I have changed all of mine and had no issues getting replacements. If you don't like the fixtures then that is another issue. There is a huge variety of new fixtures available on line or at most marine stores. Have fun!

I took my lead from Temptation who directed me to:https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...disc-rvb/2703/

I didn't use this site b/c I found another that had a brighter LEDs (i think 3 watt) for a better price. Shop around. I replaced all of my interior lights on a MS 430 with the G4 (36 bulbs). You have to cut about a 3/16" off the pronged to get it to fit correctly. The difference is incredible. My wife who digs at my obsession with lights, was very impressed with the result at 1/3 the wattage!

Now I'm looking for a similar solution for the 30 courtesy lights that I need to change over to LEDs.

LED bulbs draw little power. The admiral made that change early. They plug into the original fixtures and look just fine.

Marinebeam.com is another useful shopping site for LED replacement "bulbs."

In addition to lumens/wattage equivalents/etc.... you'll want to pay attention to color temperature. For example, "warm white" (about 2700K) approximates soft incandescent bulbs... whereas "cool white" (~3500K and up) begin to look like operating room lights.

I purchased two red/white combo bulbs from Sailing Solutions (I think). They turn on a low red, flick the switch again and the turn brighter white. The appeal to my multi-tasking side. I'd like to get more, but they were pretty pricey.

Search DRSA (retailer) and "Mako" (fixture) -- see if those are the lights you're after.

Any luck in finding the replacement covers? I need to replace mine also. Appreciate if you would share replacement info if you was successful.

Thanks

I suspect the DRSA Mako lights were used across all the Luhrs Group lines...

look at under the counter light sets at home depot. I found some for my Carver that sound like yours. The set was cheap enough to just use the covers.
