Great LED Bulb Replacements!!!
The 2015 season hasn't even begun and we're already hard at work readying the Foxx Land Ark for upcoming adventures. This is not only our first season as campers and owners of a travel trailer! One of our first projects was to replace all the incandescent bulbs in our coach... every single one of them (picture attached).
After my DH spent hours researching the seemingly endless variations of LED bulbs on the market and I spent hours reading bulb reviews, we decided on a 20-pack set of "Warm White T10 921 194 RV/Trailer 42 SMD 12V Back-up Reverse Light Bulbs" on eBay from seller LEDKINGDOM-US. Based in the United States, this seller has a 99.6% rating and more than 17,000 rated transactions. These bulbs are marginally brighter than the original 921 incandescent bulbs, but deliver the same warm white color as the bulbs they replaced. Each 921 bulb consumed 2.5 amps and each LED bulb consumers 0.25 amps with a much longer life span (we hope and expect) and a much cooler burning bulb.
Please look carefully at the 921 bulbs in the picture. Our coach is new to us, but it had a previous owner who bought it either when the 2014 model came out in 2013 or some time in 2014. Notice how many of the bulbs are darkened and some even have a reflective glint? This is due to the heat they put off in the fixture, some of which had begun to melt the fixture housing in which they were installed. Granted, a 2.5 amp bulb is not likely to start a fire by melting the fixture, but it's a cost none the less.
The best part of finding these great LEDs? We paid just $20.29 and the bulbs were shipped for free to our Illinois address, arriving on time as the auction stated. The auction continues for a little more than three hours from now (5:38PM CT, 02/20/15)... so don't delay. Ebay auction number
