How exciting! We are really enjoying our trailer If you're asking about the LEDs, I wanted them fast so I bought mine from 'GRV-LED' off of Amazon.

For the ones over the kitchen area and above the bathroom vanity, I chose the 24-5050 SMD super bright warm white. They are 3 watts and the lumens are 320-350. Link is: Amazon.com: GRV T10 921 194 24-5050 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White AC/DC 12V -28V Pack of 2: Automotive

For the rest of them, I chose the 24-3528 SMD super bright warm white. They are 1.5 watts and the lumens are 90-110. Link is: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Personally, I liked how they turned out Some may like a more bright or luminous output than the 3528's so keep that in mind when choosing, but I would definitely choose a warm or natural white over the cool white to avoid a blue hue - this is not from personal experience but from what others on the forum have recommended

I hope everything goes well for you

If not, I suggest replacing the LEDs in the fixtures that are causing your problem with new ones (the RF interference issue should have been fixed - even in the cheap import ones - by now).
My Wildcat came with LEDs so this would be a warrant issue. I talked to my dealer and they told me it needs to be rewired to a separate circuit. But I think your right, new LEDs will do the trick. Where's Wildcat Chris when you need him. (working for Jayco) But I do have all the Wildcat numbers to call.

I know for a fact that re-wiring was not required; just light replacement.

1 word of caution if you buy on Ebay make sure they give you a tracking number if they don't cancel the order before the 30 days are up or you lose I found out the hard way had bought from 1 vendor and it turned out to be a scammer. I t was only a few dollars but I chalk it up to live and learn. I thought I checked him out from the reviews he had but they can be manipulated by the seller to look good. So be real careful I am going to buy from Amazon from now on I rather pay more and get what I ordered..
