Same here. We went through 3 different led types until we got these. They don't fit in small fixtures but do fit into the original fixtures and are a bit brighter than the original non led bulbs and produce the same yellow light as the originals.

I opted for the 30-5050 SMD LED. It looks amazing- it's a bit whiter than our existing lights (but not blueish at all). It's still nice to look at. But it's soo much brighter. I only bought 2 as a test- but I'm definitely going to swap out most of ours with these (not all, because I want some fixtures to actually be a little darker than they currently are).

Here's what I bought:

Swapped out a floor register that was breaking. Bought the wrong size for the second one but now know what we need.

Went to Ikea and Home Depot and placed an Amazon order- so there will be much more to come.

Changed out the factory shower valves (flimsy and stuck out too far) for real valve.

installed a remote switch and moved temp control...

I finally got tired of running outside and turning on the hot water tankless heater... so I ran a few wires from the stitch wires and added a new lighted switch to let me know when it is on / off. ( it also makes a little floor lighting when going to the head at night. ) I also added the temp control to the panel so I could change temp depending on the season. Not a bad job, it really makes life a little easier.
This panel is under the stove out of the way and will not be messed with.

Added a door stop for bathroom door. Finished my sewer hose holder fence post mod. Valcroed the panel under the bathroom sink for easier access.

Added some weatherstripping around the basement doors (wonder why there was none?) And placed a small fridge in the basement on the awning side

Ended the night with dumping tanks and getting our ladder to be beach ready, beach cart, chair, and boogie board. I'm going to have a friend follow me to look for movement. I'm not happy with how much is on there, but we'll see...

Did the roller make a big difference.
It's pretty bright in the bunk!
