so i am on an LED kick lately.... the one light assembly that i cannot get to perform well with an LED bulb is the yellow porch light right over the main door. has anyone had any luck with this conversion? normally i wouldn't raise such a fuss around it, but this light is probably the on the MOST at night on my camper. so far i have tried these combos with poor results...

. this bulb doesn't have an obnoxious amount of individual led's like some of this style do....but i figured it would still do the job. i was wrong... i would guess i get around half the light output of the good ol' yellow lens/1156 standard bulb

. same exact bulb as my last test....only yellow. i get a little more output from this combo with the clear lens.....but still far from the standard equipment

. i thought this would be my ticket. i have a few of this style bulb in the inside of my camper on the ceiling and they work pretty darn good. however, not the same results outside.
i'm not sure where im going wrong here.... is it the fact that i'm not using the 20 dollar bulbs.......or is it just a lost cause. i have found this bulb LEDTrailerLights.com - L05-0012 RV LED interior / exterior porch light 1141 1156 1003 dayligh white
, but i don't know how this would perform any better than the last example i provided above.
id greatly appreciate any input on other peoples experiences with the porch light!
