Sometimes the lamp fixture guts can be removed leaving the shell and wiring so a new LED array can be installed. I removed the fluorescent parts from their fixtures and added LED strip lights. What a difference in light cast and AH consumed! Over time, I've replaced all my boat's fixtures or bulbs to LED and my electron budget has vastly improved.

Amen! I have just about changed all of my fixtures to LED, I find it much better lighting and low Amp draw.
