Lens covers

My lights are so bright in my travel trailer. Very annoying.
I have the hard wired LED lights. They are way too bright. Instead of replacing them (sounds costly) does anyone know how to order new lens covers that might be a little darker. Or, does anyone know of something that is safe to put inside these lens covers to dim it?

I would look for an LED compatible dimmer. If the switch is "part of the light" then maybe you can replace the element with a "softer" LED. I'm just thinking out loud as I am NOT an expert on LED lighting.

I have 8 different lights I here so I’d rather not have to put a dimmer on each one. They are push button and hard wired. I think the cheapest way would be to get darker lens covers but I just can’t find them.

You can buy spray tint at the auto parts store and spray them. Just make sure you spray them all the same, so some don't come out darker than the others.

order replacement bulbs on amazon or ebay, it won't cost that much to just change them out. Now if you go to the parts store, yeah, those buggers are expensive
