Around and around we go...
The one big plus for LED lighting is the possibility of using a
smaller/less expensive DC/DC converter.
Headlight on HI = 130W
Heater fan HI = 250W
Misc 12V = 60W
TOTAL SO FAR = 440W
4 marker lights = 5W x 4 = 20W
4 turn signals = 27W x 4 = 100W (intermittent - can use "peak power" from
2 brake lights = 27W x 2 = 50W
2 tail lights = 5W x 2 = 10W
Center brake light = 5W = 2 = 10W
TOTAL LIGHTING = 90W/190W (intermittent)
So LEDs can reduce your DC/DC requirements from 530W to 450W.
