Festoon Light Bulb

The little festoon light bulb in our floor aisle light burnt out and I am having a doozy of a time finding a replacement. The ones that I thought would match from CW are too thick, although I liked that they are LED. Anyone have to replace that little stick of a bulb and find a suitable replacement?

Well what that thing burns out expect to stand around scratching your head. Thanks anyway.

We're taking our coach to the dealer next week to have our washer/dryer installed... I might make this their problem to solve.

I went to Auto Zone and bought a dome light bulb. It fit right in.

Later when I upgrades the LED replacement I got was a little larger but I made it fit and it seams to work.

Take your old one with you to compare size.

Almost all auto parts stores carry them. They are the standard dome light bulb for a lot of Ford's. Was in a WalMart last weekend and saw a bunch in the auto section that were regular bulbs and lot of led's. I bought a pack of 3 because ny frig light was out and all these were led's. Put one in the frig and the other 2 in my Ford truck.

All of the 14V 4W bulbs I've seen at walmart and auto stores are like this:
GE 4w 14v 194NA/BP2 T3.25 Miniature Automotive Light Bulb - 2 Light Bu – BulbAmerica

I need this shape:
FESTOON BULBS, FESTOON, FESTOON LAMP, FESTOON LIGHT, FESTOON BULB, XENON FESTOON, XEENON FESTOON LAMP, XENOON FESTOON LIGHT

Thanks for the suggestions though, I'll check again. I did ask our dealer to replace the bulb when we have it in for service, told them I haven't had any luck finding bulbs in stores and didn't want to keep ordering bulbs without seeing them first hand. I'll keep checking in stores too, I would like to have extras for when the new one burns out.

I have the same type of lights in the cargo part of my Jeep Liberty. Not sure about my Berkshire. Take a look at the link below...they work great on my jeep. I ordered mine from carid.com.
