Ernest, dont worry much about what's made in China. I've been having some LED strips under my coach for the last two years made in China. Still going strong.

I just switched out my 921's with LED from M4 Products Natural White Elite LED's:

Elite Series Wedge Base Retrofit Bulb

They cost a bit, but I'm please with the results and plug-n-play replacement ease. At 0.13 amps and about 100 lumens increase, this should ease my dry camping battery drain (my wife leaves the lights on in the trailer just like at home! )

Hi Ernest,

I bought mine on eBay from this seller over a year ago. I replaced all interior, storage bays, and exterior bulbs, except running or marker lights.
I didn't pay a premium. All made in China and still working great. More importantly, they hardly get warm.

To avoid wasting my money, I did a little research around the forums and learned to pay attention to the light color, or color temperature of the bulb as described in the Kelvin scales. LEDs are made to match the color of incandescent bulbs at 2700-3000K (Warm/Yellow, I used these on most fixtures). If you prefer a whiter light, look for bulbs marked 3500-4100K. For bluer white light, look for bulbs marked 5000-6500K. These last ones hurt my vision but are great for (IMHO) indirect light such as the bulbs under the microwave illuminating the stove, inside the storage compartments or the hook up area. The warmer LED bulbs were not bright enough for me in these applications so I went with the whiter/bluer for indirect applications.

Here are some other sources on eBay to choose from.

Good luck!
