I changed my last TT out and found that the old filament bulbs had started to burn ( a dark brown area) in the ceiling above the bulbs. The new LED lamps are a lot cooler. I found that l I liked the warm white bulbs the best. The plain white bulbs tended to wash out the colors out.
It seems like every bulb I have taken out of my new 320RS seems to be the old incandescent type. I thought they they were supposed to be LED. Guess il start changing them out. I'm having trouble finding 194 warm white bulbs. Any suggestions?

I got 2-20 packs of 921 LEDs from ebay. Just ordered some more for the turn signals and some more outside lights. I have a huge mountain trip planned in July with some smaller trips planned in between. Trying to get everything finished before July at least.

When purchasing LEDs to replace incandescents you MUST look at the color temperature and Lumen ratings to find an LED light similar to the old lights. Color Should be "warm white" and/or 3000 Kelvins or less for a similar hue to old lights. Lumens (light output) should 200 lumens or greater. A lot of the cheap LEDs online are 5000-6000 Kelvins (much bluer and harsher) and 150-180 lumens (dimmer) than incandescents.

Has anyone swapped out the exterior scare lights? If so, which bulb did you use? Big difference?
I swapped out one of mine just to see what the difference would be and It is much dimmer than the old bulb.

Thanks,
Don

Yup...used a Star-Lite 300 lumen 921 replacement. Works good. Changed the lens to clear instead of yellow. Nice and bright now.

Thumbs up

Rigid Industries LEDs inside ... much less draw when dry camping and a lot less heat + more light (bright)

They aren't as bright as I want. I cant recommend them as a replacement. I will probably go back to superbrightleds.com like I have before. Click image for larger version
