Default LED bulbs

Folks,
I want to replace my inside light bulbs with a LED version.
Anyone know what is the base for the overhead lights? Or which LED bulb works.
Thank you.

I bought a batch similar to these a couple of years ago. They work great. I had to "squeeze" the wires on most of them to make better contact, but other than that - I would definitely order them again (although 20 should last my little trailer a long time!)

All the LEDs are on one side (instead of circular), so all the light is focused downward.

Default Delicate wires

If a particular LED bulb does not work, don't give up. The wires on the wedge bases are very delicate. Using a needlenose pliers, carefully straighten them and then bend them out from the base just a little bit, so that they make contact with the metal inside the socket. Peer into the socket with a flashlight -- you can see how the contacts are designed. The bulbs do not like being plugged in and out often, but you should not need to do so.

Default LED bulbs

I got some 923 replacement lamps from M4LED. They were the small lamp type with about 7 led's around the whole thing. They work great, but are not as bright as the incandescent lamps. So I put them above the bed and under the cabinets where we did not need it so bright. I just ordered the flat plate lamps that have 12 led's on one side. They will adhere to the lamp housing and have a pigtail that plugs into the lamp socket. Going to install next week. M4LED is highly recommended. Good product. Ships fast

GRV T10 Wedge 921 194 25-3528 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White DC 12V Pack of 10

I used these LEDS. They are 'corn cob' and have the same brightness and color of light as the bulbs I replaced. The price was pretty good.

Default Know what you are buying

I would definitely recommend you do your research. I recommend the circuit on board which has LEDS facing down only.

Nearly all the ones on eBay and amazon are the 100 lumen variety from China. I bought 20 of them but find them them dim compared to regular bulbs. I finally found 350 Lumen ones on dhgate (a Chinese ebay). Here is the item:

It is available in Warm white and cool white but be aware that the warmer the LED the less usefull light it puts out.

I haven't yet received them but will be sure to do a review of the seller and bulbs when they arrive.
