LED ligts on tractor trailers suck in the winter, all the snow that blows up behind in the draft covers them, and they don't get warm enough so the snow dosent melt off like incandecent bulbs, Big accident on 90 last year cause of em. I swap the LEDs out for the trusty ol SUPER 40 pop in incandecents.

Yep - as a new driver they were just starting to install those in all the trailers where I worked in '03, so some had traditional lights, but the rest LED. I got to experience that problem first hand, seeing I got hired in the thick of winter.

Hell of a way to learn to drive. Set of doubles, on an unplowed major highway at 05:30 after working all night long on a loading dock with a pallet jack (no forklift for the new guy ...) moving hundreds of tons of freight, tired, empty kite, 20k on the lead ... then watching the kite almost pass me after jacking brakes on after coming up on a plow in blinding snow! :fear: I was instantly warm after that!! :lol: Thank God there were no cars in either lane beside me. My driving career would've ended my first day! Though for sure I was done for. Good thing I screwed around with vehicles as a youngster. Had I stayed on the brakes like most people instinctively do, It would've been game over.

Bjs was having a sale on 43w halogens put out 65w equivallent and soft light, dimmable hallogen bulbs they look just like incandescents, put out good light, they get hot but not as hot as incandescents. They were 2 each. Much better than the 8$ non dimmable led, which still get hot on the large metal surrounding to the transformer.

Hallogen also work much better on the flood lighting and those flood dimmable leds are like 38$. :o

Best part made in usa. ;)

Walmart equivalent ge model is 24$. :shock:

Who is paying $85? I've never seen them over $40. Home Depot is selling the 12 watt for around $25 now.

Yeah for decades I've always watched the weather reports for that part of the country and thanked my lucky stars I didn't live near that small ocean they called a "lake". :)

We haven't got anything measurable since the October nightmare. A couple squalls here & there, but no accumulation. Of course, that didn't stop the state from dumping 5 trillion tons of salt on the roads so far this year ... :mad:
