Just received my LED's from superbrite so far I like what I see. I wont be able to install them on the TT until the 27th but here are some pics of a quick test I did.
Here is the darkest area I could find.

Here is the WLED-WWHP6-TAC

Here is the WLED-WWHP10-DAC


I'll follow up once they are installed.

Just installed 11 LED's purchased from Superbriteleds.com. I used four warm white HP10-DAC bulbs in the overhead fixtures, two HP6-D bulbs over the table, and five 921-WW12's in the RV's remaining fixtures. Tonight, we'll see if everything is bright enough.

The first picture shows a ceiling fixture with a stock 921 on the left, and the 10 element LED on the right. The second picture has a 6 element LED on the left, & 10 element on the right.

I found the 36 LED pads the correct size for us, although some have had good luck with 24 LED pads. You are the first to test smaller units.

The new lighting scheme was mostly successful, but Linda wants more light in the bathroom. Just ordered some of the 36 LED pads, and plan to try them in the main overhead fixtures & relocate the 10 element units to the bathroom. Now I just have to wait for the slow boat from China for delivery.

I just upgraded the six 921 bulbs in my 625D pop-up to these:
LED 6 CHIP 921 REPLACEMENT RV BULB | eBay

I puchased these because they have the circuitry to drive the LED bulbs properly with a constant current. These gives longer LED life, better reliabilty and constant brightness as the battery voltage changes.

Installation couldn't have been simplier, slide the lens off, pull the 921 bulb, push in the LED replacement, slide the lens back on.

To my eye the LED replacements are not quite as bright as the bulbs. But the bulbs look really orange-yellow compared to the white of the LEDs.

The main reason I changed to LED was that if we had two of the lights on and turned on the third the other two would dim because of the current draw. Now that doesn't happen.

Overall I am very happy with these LED replacements.

Replaced mine with the 36 LED units. I went with "warm white" as I can't stand the bluish tint of regular bright white LEDs. I'm very happy with the results. My current measurements show them to draw about one-third the current compared to the incandescent bulbs. I just ordered some single T10 LED replacements for my two reading lamps over the couch. I'll report on those when I have them.

Here are the 36 LED units:

Here are the singles:

My 36 element LED's also just arrived, & I installed them in main overhead fixtures. Looks like we'll have plenty of light now.

I relocated the 10 element units to the bathroom and table fixtures, and the 6 element units are now over the sink and exhaust hood (tight fit!). Our next trip is next month, so we'll see how everything works then.

TimeFurnace,

The white "wedge" connector (T10/921) shown in the photo fits my fixtures. Not sure what you have in your RV though. The only thing I had to do to secure it was put a piece of double-sided foam tape on the back to stick it to the metal reflector in the fixture. Takes a few minutes to do each one. Very simple.
