Had not thought about landscape lights. I have tried different pancake lights but did not find what I liked except for the one with the pins that were to short. Another example of what you can learn on the forum. Thanks

We got our 1076's from SuperBrightleds.com. Site is very informative and ships quickly and cheaply.

Pulled the trigger on LEDS from General RV when the ones from China I ordered were shipped wrong. Expensive but so far worth the extra expense of checking them out before purchasing.

Please let us know what product you land on and like. I have been holding off for more than a year since there are so many bulbs in my TT that I want to change out.

The heat from the lights in the summer bothers me and since it's summer, well you know, out of sight out of mind.

I have bought most of all my led's from random ebay sellers out of china. The only Issue I had was with my 1076 chandelier bulbs over the dinette. I purchased 4 of those from my local dealership and fingers crossed they work, as the one's from ebay (2 sets) didn't work.
Just to report back the 4 1076 bulbs I bought from my dealership work perfect. Cost more than the ones I bought off amazon, but they actually work so that is a bonus

I couldn't bring myself to spend $10-12 per bulb when I have something like 23 to replace. (And, I am a slave to Amazon Prime.)

I just ordered 1 pack of these:

GRV T10 Wedge 921 194 30-5050 SMD LED Bulb Lamp Super Bright Warm White Dc 12v Pack of 2


As far as I can tell, the thirty 5050 SMD LED should give me a nice bright light. The Warm White might be a little too yellow vs. what I have now (based on their specs: Light Color: Warm White (3000 ~3500K)). So we'll see.

I really kind of like the idea of natural white but am afraid of them looking too white. We'll see- I do know that in the bunkhouse, for 2 of the fixtures that I want something that's absolutely as bright as possible. It's frustratingly dark back there with the Reflectix on the windows.

Based on the recommendation of someone on a different thread (wish I remembered who) I purchased 20 of these, which gave me one spare:
10x Warm White 1156 BA15S 27SMD 5050 LED Light RV camper Car Backup 7506 | eBay

Here is a side by side photo. On the left is the LED and on the right is an incandescent.


I am quite pleased with the price, the fast shipping, the brightness, and the color of these replacements. I highly recommend them.

I need BRIGHT light. My toy hauler area is too dark. The bathroom is too dark and honestly so is the bedroom. I changed the living room to LED and I am ok with them since I don't need it as bright in there.

I think I might have the solution to that with the bulbs I bought. It's significantly brighter than the bulbs I took out.

I'm going to order more for our dark bunkhouse and I'm interested in seeing how it goes.

I plan to shop their other products to find ones that aren't as bright for more intimate areas (where the light is close to your head and too bright would be too much).

I really kind of like these. The true test will be when my wife gets home, of course!
