I've been getting mine on Ebay but having problems getting the brightness level I want. I've bought two different sets and neither set are bright enough. If someone finds some that are really bright then it might save me some guess work.

Anyone happen to have a light fixture nearby and know the length of bulb that will fit? I am thinking of ordering these 4X HID White Wedge T10 68 SMD Backup Reverse LED Light Bulb W5W 194 168 921 2825 | eBay and they are 1 5/8" long by 3/8" wide.

I'm probably not describing this exactly right, but here's my basic understanding...

You want to look at the number of LED chips, the brighter it is. The type of chip (eg 5050) indicates the brightness.

This link has 30 of the 5050 chips. They are super bright. Way brighter than what I replaced. I've actually ordered a dozen and have replaced all of my bulbs.

(Edited to correct this link- it was super wrong.)

No that's why I was asking. My camper is on the other side of town at the storage lot. It's the double light fixture that I thought was standard?

Yeah right now I am searching for extremely bright lights.

ependydad that round design might be better than the type I am buying. I don't like the yellow though. I might buy a few of the cool white and see how well they do.

For interior lights in RV, I have helped several folks up grade and although mine were the older round based bulbs I saw no prob putting the 68 smd bulbs in my friends Fleetwood class C.

Also if you roam down that link, those who were looking for Warm White will find 68 smd warm white, 10 for about 7.91 w free shipping

Bob shows the fixture below and I think I posted a picture earlier on the thread. But yeah- my double and single fixtures seem pretty standard. The bulb number is a 921. What I got was significantly larger in size, but there is plenty of room.

These are whiter than what I had before. I was worried about the specs thinking they'd be too yellow but once plugged in, these are definitely whiter. I worried a little that they were too white and my wife wouldn't like them. But, they seem very close to natural light.

EPENDYDAD -- so what bulbs did you end up going with and liking the best? Your last few posts state that you went with two different bulbs throughout the camper?
One being the round cylinder, and one being the flat pancake kind.
I am ready to pull the trigger, but I need like 50-60 bulbs if I want to do all of them.

Wow, I did that second link completely wrong. I have only used the round cylinder:

Ah okay...got it!
Do they really fit in the fixtures alright? That picture you posted with the led and 921 really shows the difference in size!

It's all about lumens. The more lumens, the brighter the lights. What I've seen in the past is the brighter the bulb, the more it costs. That being said, they are getting cheaper.

I wonder if those pancake style LED would work better? Wouldn't that force more light downward instead of the the circular type?

Maybe. The reason I went for cylinders is that the fixture is white which (in my theory) reflects and spreads out the light that shines up against it giving you "more" light.

At least... that's what I'm telling myself.

I noticed in your pictures yours seem to have a metal reflective material behind the bulb. Mine does not have that. It's just the plastic behind the bulb so I don't get any reflection from the back side.

I just put these in the other day. I can't see a difference in lighting between these and incondecent bulbs, although these are a little bit brighter. I ordered 10, and need another 12 but wanted to try them first. I'll be ordering the rest soon!
