4X T10 921 194 RV Trailer 12V LED Lights Bulbs 42 SMD Xenon 6000K White | eBay
6000K leds will be like looking into the sun. I would back off to a 3500K to 4500K that is more like a normal cw lamp. Here is a chart to help you https://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF...ml%3B400%3B415

It also depends alot on how much light each person likes.. Some need to have it super bright.. Personally, we have really bright LEDs in the bathroom, above the sink and above the table.. We might change one more in the bedroom too.. Otherwise they are all a bit dimmer and no one minds, since we don't need it bright enough to perform surgery in the trailer...

After doing mine once wirh some REAL cheap china led's and not liking them (not consistent color) I redid whole trailer (again) with diff ones (still china) 24ct smd , 1.2w, 3000k color (closest to incandescent) wedge base NO POLATIRY...these are so much nicer than the previous ones I had...just pop the old ones out and put the new ones in!....fyi in a lacrosse 318 there are 33 wedge base bulbs , the three pin style in the entertainment center, and the 3 bayonet style in the vent hood (1) and over the pedestal table (2)....I didn't replace the fridge bulb ...yet...lol

Oh and the scare light and front cap lights are an automotive style bulb...1157 comes to mind. ..not for sure on that number...its a basic parking lamp..(I didnt swap those as I dont use em, I run my underawning led strips)

sent from fat fingers via a space dish thing with no regard to grammer.

Oh and one more thing, the bag said 250 lumens...anything less isnt as bright as incandescent. ..but my newer barqman lights have lense covers that have a magnifying/focusing portion in the middle of the lense....I noticed my fil jayco didnt and it made the bulbs look dimmer in his unit.....

Ok...thats all I can recall...im leaving on vacation (non camping) and killing time till I leave...

20x T10 W5W 194 501 168 LED Light 5050 SMD 13 LED White Tail Side Bulb lamp USA

I got ones like these for $20 and they seem plenty bright enough for us.

The one on the right is the led and the other is old bulb, as you can see the room is plenty bright with the leds

my original ones were "whitish" like that.....prob 5000k....wife nixed them quickly as they seemed too "hospital" for her tastes...(she works there so hence the association )lol....the HID projectors i retrofit in my F250 are 5500k and its a VERY white light.....higher numbers go into blue and then purple....the higher K do seem brighter, but at the sacrifice of perceived color output.....some people like the bright white.....we didnt.....good thing you can buy em in all diff colors..my biggest issue was slight color diff from bulb to bulb in same lot....so i had to hand match em for color.....no biggie..

Our current fifth wheel was our first camper with all led's from the factory...what an improvement vs incandescent lighting in all aspects: light intensity output/low heat output/low voltage use, etc.. Sweet!

The real white ones are the original light bulbs, the one that looks blueish is the led but picture really makes them look more blue than they are.
