LED tail lights/running lights?

I have a 2014 Salem Cruise Lite. I'd like to replace the tail/running light bulbs with LEDs. Can anyone tell me what LED bulbs I should get? What's the number of the bulb in the tail lights?

Thanks,

They are probably 1157s. If you are looking for bulb replacements, look for 5050 series. If you want the brightest LEDs, look for cree type.

I replaced mine with commercial lights like these. They should last the life of the camper and are high visibility lights. Kind of expensive but you'll only do it once.

Race-mart were fast, and inexpensive; check them out

We got our LED markers from sales@race-mart.com in June, 2015 for only $5.25 each.
I popped off old lens, pulled old bulb, and plugged the new lens light-cover and all, in their place. There was no need to replace the mounted base, break seals, or have to re-caulk anything. It was really easy and at this price, really a good deal.
Our Flagstaff 8528IKWS took these matching lenses and replaced easily.

I am Very concerned about "The Other Guy" seeing our Brake/Turn lights in the "Daytime"! I replaced our Stop/Turn with LED's early in the game! They, RV Company's use the Poorest rear light's in the world! Youroo!!

I replaced the tail/brake lights with 1157 red LED's from Walmart. They were like $15, but I figured I could easily return them if they didn't work. But they did word, and provide a brighter light vs. an incandescent. And the high-rate flash with the turn signal is a benefit as well. I have the large Bargman #92 style. I also added some aluminum tape (the true shiny duct tape - not the rubbery type) inside on the back of the housing first to add more reflectivity.

As for the running lights, I tried to replace the incandescent 194 style bulb with an LED version, but the LED bulb was too tall to snap the lense back on. So I bought the flat style LED bulb, but they were too low and did not provide any light in the 360 degree area to illuminate the lense. I don't remember the lense model # I have, but I am still running incandescents. If I strike it rich this spring, I'll replace my running lights with a LED replacement lense.

I plan to add a 3rd brake light up higher on the TT to further alert of my braking intentions. I'm sure I'll used an LED strip-type light.
