Default Type of bulb/Antenna

For some reason I can not locate the actual type of 12V bulb that is being used in my camper. I know some folks are using LED to save power. We have a 2009 189FBR. Does any one know what bulb works please?
Also has anyone had to replace that FM antenna? Ours broke off and want to replace. Looks to be only about 10 to 12" tall.
Thank you.

Take a sample to NAPA Auto parts or other automotive parts dealer and they will help you with getting the same type of bulb. Just curious why you wouldn't switch to LED, they are easier on the battery but also put out allot less heat which is a benefit when using air conditioning or try to keep your RV cooler. Just my opinion. Not sure what antenna you are replacing but I would check with them as well. Silverado

I bought these bulbs several years ago for my 2010 FBR. They match up to the color and intensity of the original incandescent bulbs. Don

I highly suggest avoiding the cheap LEDs as I almost burned my RV down using them. Buy a quality LED bulb. They last longer and are safer.

I strongly recommend LED bulbs -- the latest versions have great color temp and are very bright. And I have used the m4 supplier mentioned in the previous post -- they have an office in the USA and are very good about answering questions via email.

They are 921 T-5 wedge base bulbs. As others have mentioned there are lots of options for equivalent LED bulbs if you choose to go that route. And I agree that staying away from the cheap ones is a good idea. I haven't heard of them causing fires before, but I have heard of them causing radio & TV interference.
