What Number is my Incandescent Bulb

I have a 2105 Forest River Wildwood 26RKSS. I want to replace my incandescent bulbs with LEDs. I pulled several of the bulbs out of the fixtures but none have any numbers on them I am assuming that they are 904s or 921s but they do not say. They are the two pole slide in flat ended bulbs. Not the kind that you push in and turn.

Any ideas?

The push in bulbs are generally 921s. I replaced most of them with LEDs last year with a modest improvement in illumination but a considerable improvement in electrical efficiency. The ones I got from Amazon were mostly white with a few that had a more yellowish cast mixed in. They were easy to install as long as you held them by the base only.

The ten pack on Amazon is about $22 and goes by:
Grv T10 921 194 24-3528 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White AC/DC 12V -28V Pack of 10

I was just looking at those on Amazon. I think I'll get a 10 pack and try them.

Thanks!

FYI: LED bulbs are kind of like florescent tubes - they come in "cool white" and "warm white" versions. Some people love one and hate the other. If you like the yellower-type light that the regular incandescent bulbs give off, look for the "warm white" types. If not, go with the "cool white" variety

Everyone has their own taste.
Myself, I like the warm white style for reading which is similar to the light from a regular filament bulb. Most people find the cool white variety brighter and more like fluorescent lighting which may work better for you, depending on your level of visual acuity. If there is a RV dealer near you, have a look at the LED lighting in some of the new units to see what style you'd prefer.

I just bought a 10 pack of Cool White and a 10 pack of Warm white on Amazon. We'll see which I like better.

Thanks.

Personally, I would NOT recommend these LED bulbs. Purchased these off of Amazon.com and they worked for a few short trips, but they didn't last long. The bases are thin and they don't handle vibrations well.

Replaced them with the same as heavynlori suggested and haven't had any probs since.
