LED exterior Lighting on HW296

On our new 2018 HW296, we have the rectangular rear exterior lights (running, brake, etc). Some of the other new HW296 trailers had the round real exterior lights.

Anyone know why the difference? Are they both LED?

Thanks

My rectangle lights on my 17 aren't led. So maybe the new round ones are the only ones so far

"I was told" by the sales guy all lights were LEDs on my 2017 HW27KW were LED. Well... They arent. All exterior lights (except the LED strip) are standard bulbs.

It appears as if only the round ones are LED.

You can replace the exterior bulbs with LED "bulbs" and significantly reduce power usage of the exterior lights. I have done this in my A-frame so that current draw and voltage drop (to the battery) are reduced while towing with lights on. And the LEDs in the tongue and porch lights are brighter when we are setting up in the dark.

just my experiences
