I tried a couple cheap ones and one of them shorted and blew the fuse for the bedroom lights.

The biggest issue is the difference in the lights hue.
Leds commonly have a different (type) of light.
Some people don't like it. I like the led smd replacements I have.

If you're concerned about the harsh color/brightness of LEDs, stay away from "super bright" or "bright white" designations and look for "warm white." Those will be a closer color (called temperature for lighting) to the incandescent or halogen lighting most RVers are used to...

i made the mistake of first trial order of "super brights" which were blueish. looked good over the white christmas tree but that was it.

Ordered some "warm white" lights and those are about what was in there. only thing is they seem a bit dimmer..

I have been happy with these from the seller on eBay: "scintiluna_led" The seller even replaced a bad one free of charge including shipping for me without having to return the bad one.

I would say there's three things to look for: first, as already mentioned, the color: look for "warm white" or if it's listed in Kelvins, something in the 3K to 4K range, higher than that starts to get bluish. Second, look for light output: a standard 921 bulb has an output around 250 lumens, so if you want something bright as the stock, shoot for something in that range. Lastly, look for a LED that emits light in all directions. Some of the cheaper 921 replacement LEDs are flat panel or "ping pong paddle" shaped, but they only throw the light "down," not "out" (in an overhead application, for instance.) Most of the overhead fixtures are designed to have light shine/reflect out to the sides, but it has to be that kind of bulb or LED. Good luck!
