|Discovered last night that one of the cargo lights in the basement had accidentally turned on during travel or when I was packing things up. It's one of those cheap flat lights with a slide switch. The bulb was an 1141 and draws 9.5A. By the time I found it, the plastic lamp cover was melted and a small burned spot had been made on a dog bed that was touching it. Luckily the dog bed was heavy nylon and didn't ignite!
This is not the first time that I've found one of these lights on; the slide switches require virtually no force to turn on and it is easy to do when I am taking stuff out or putting it away.
After catching my breath and saying a few prayers of thanks, I'm now looking to buy LED bulbs to replace mine. The 1141 has now usually been replaced by the 1156; I would appreciate recommendations if anyone has tried some.
