The best LED's I have found so far are these LEDTrailerLights.com - RV LED T10 wedge base LED - 906 912 921 LED replacement but their price is too high. They have a nice warm color and they seem to run cooler than others I purchased. I could get 15 of the LED's posted above on eBay, though, for the price of one from ledtrailerlights. LOL.

At 10 for $10, you'd just toss 'em. I bought 100 from them and, out of the eighty or so that I've used and installed for friends in the last year, no failures.

When I bought them, they didn't have the plastic finish on the base, just bi-pin, so I've used them in multiple apps, breaking the bulbs out of the sockets and re-using.

Hey! What can I say. I'm retired (or retarded).

But, seriously, the marine-type, isolated ground lamps cost $30 each, and my boating buddies bring copious cervezas for the lamps!

Used them all last year and I really notice a saving on the batteries using about 1/3 the amperage for light.

At the cost, you can't buy these to save money even though they last much longer but rather to save battery for extended stays. I get a week on 4 batteries with some to spare being careful and that's watching a dvd at night and using satellite radio during the day for a couple of hours.

Amazon has a lot of 12v LEDs.

I've swapped out all overhead lights with the same LEDs bob7794 mentioned. I'm putting the 24 LED bulbs in the single bulb sconces by all beds/bunks:

They have the right amount of light for reading, but you have to be careful putting them in the sockets as I broke one off at the base trying to push it in the the socket from the top of the "paddle."

The lights worked great last week. Much less draw on the batteries and very little heat.
