LED for the ToyHauler

I am looking for some help making a decision. I have purchased 6 LED lights (1156 connections) HERE and found them nice but a little on the white/blue side. The color temp is 5800-6300, but the Lums state they are 500, so some good light.
I am currious on what others have used, where they have purchased them, and what the experiance has been. What type of light color temps you enjoy.

I am looking towards replacing the exterior light under the awning with LED and perhaps adding more and welcome all and any feedback.

Well, I went with bright white for all my outside lights and they are plenty bright. Inside went with warm white. In the bathroom, went warm white but with the 36 led panels and really bright in there now!

No cause the light housing is not big enough for the panel.

I went with these- they are bright white and give pretty good light.

How did you put those in your bathroom lights? They are not BA15's?

They give you the different bases to connect with and the back of the panel has the good 3-m tape to hold it to the fixture. Only drawback is the wire is unsightly and in the way but I don't care. As long as DW has plenty of light to primp to, I don't get yelled at! I think I put them in my storage area too.

Yes, however the adapter on the link you provided was a BA9 connector 😢
Didn't notice until they arrived. It was going to cost an additional $7 for the BA15s adapters... I found another local US seller and they had a similar product at a great price so ordered them (again) from them
