Formerly in the LED industry, I consider Philips Lumileds Luxeon, Cree and Nichia the "top tier". Osram is pretty close.

Parting shot - RFI testing the LEDs

Had some time this afternoon so more out of curiosity than concern I went out to the trailer to do some RFI testing of all the LEDs I have recently installed.

Starting with all the LEDs off I monitored the VHF/UHF amateur bands with the Kenwood V7A that lives in the trailer permanently. I opened the squelch on both bands and turned on all the LEDs. I did not notice a perceptible rise in background noise. A local repeater gave its voice ID and sounded just fine.

So I moved on to the Concertone AM/FM/WX radio.

I started the test of each band with all LEDs off and then turned them all on. Again, no rise in noise. I listened to weak stations and empty channels. No appreciable noise that I thought I could blame on the LEDs.

And then finally the off-air TV. No problems. Even with all 10 remaining $1.50 Chinese E-bay LEDs lit, no detectable RFI.

I didn't test amateur HF radio as it was just too much trouble to drag the TS-570 out to the trailer and set all that up. Maybe next time we go camping. But I don't think there will be an issue.

Have converted 3 campers in past 4 years to 100% LED lighting.

Have nothing but good things to say about the cheap 48smd LED panel lights that I got from Ebay. 10x 48 SMD Warm White Light Panel T10 BA9S Festoon Dome LED Interior Bulb Lamp | eBay

I have them in all of my overhead lighting and have never had a failure yet except for occasional release of double sided tape which I remedied with a hot glue gun to secure the lights.

For lights over reading areas, couches, and tables, I used cheap ebay wedge base bulbs which also have been great. I prefer a more white/bluish lower intensity light over reading areas and the dinette table 20x Warm White T10 921 194 RV Trailer 42 SMD 12V Backup Reverse LED Lights Bulbs | eBay

You can spend 8-16 dollars a bulb but I won't. I'll save top tier for the liquor I drink and not my interior lights. As cheap as those Ebay lights are, replacements are cheap if needed but I have yet need to replace one.

Want to replace bulbs with LED's

Anyone have a 23ss, 2012 ROO that they replaced all bulbs with LED's? If so, how many total bulbs were replaced and with what number # LED(s)? What did final cost end up? Appreciate your input.

Leds everywhere

Good information.
As Amazon Prime member, there's a lot out there.
In my MH replaced the lamps for the outside amber, (with white, although amber may have been a better choice) the lamps for the cook top, much brighter now (although I worry about them getting greasy) and the dome lights in the driver, passenger area--again, much brighter. When the whether turns warmer, will replace the under step lamp, and the white light over the dump station and water connection.

Where and when possible I opt for the warm white for interior lamps.
