LED Conversion 2013 230FBS Tracer

I just finished converting all incandescent lights to LED's but not without a moment of head scratching and maybe a little cussing.
The lamp over the dining table requires two 1056 bayonet type bulbs. Initially the LED (HOT SYSTEMô 1156 7506 1003 1141 LED SMD 18 LED Bulbs Interior RV Camper Cool White 6-pack by HOT SYSTEM) did not work.
After trying two more with the same results, I put one in the work light near the trailer tongue and it worked fine so I checked the lamp with my multi-meter and discovered a reverse polarity.
I simply switched the hot and ground wires at the wire nuts in the lower end of the lamp and they now work fine.
I guess with a bayonet style bulb, polarity is not taken into consideration so just wanted to put this out there as an FYI.
