They aren't as bright as the incandescent bulbs but will be fine for most of the fixtures.

For the main fixtures, I've ordered these to see if they are brighter

I bought those and they are about the same as the incandescent bulbs slightly brighter. I am happy with them.

Was it the weight of water that did it? Or was it the wind that tore the awning?

We (myself, DW & 26 year old son) feel it was a micro-burst. The end that pulled from the roller was on the upper end of the slanted awning for the water to drain off. However, the support pole (Blue Hawk painter extension poles) bent about one foot below the roller. So, it could have been a combination. Fortunately, about 2' of the awning pulled out of the roller, which allowed us to still use the awning until it was replaced. Funny thing is - this happened at the same campground where I hit the 4x4 pole almost 20 months earlier. Also, I've made heavier poles now.
Upside? I was going to have to replace the non-power end of the roller and patch the awning. Seems as though something hit the awning close to the end, ripping a hole in the awning, and broke the white housing at the torsion end while the trailer was in storage over the winter. Of course, no one took responsibility. I'll have proof, if there ever is a next time.

Finally got to pack the camper for a trip! Staying in the yard but the grandkids like to live in the trailer while they're here. Lol
Really not going anywhere this year. Boo hoo hoo hoo!
