Default LED lights

I'd like to have brighter lights in several spots in my Trailer. I'm referring to the standard white ceiling fixtures. I'd like to change the 921 bulbs to LED bulbs.


If anyone has done this what bulbs did you use? I've read reviews and the quality of some of the bulbs are terrible. Your experience would be appreciated.

Go to Amazon and get "Warm White" replacements. Just type in your bulb number and LED into Google. I use "Brite White" for countertop lighting but too bright for ovehead/lamp lighting.

So bright white for kitchen counter. What about reading light above bed? How about dinette table where a computer is used and wife does coloring?


Do you recommend a certain brand?

No certain brand. Buy a couple of each color and see what you like. It's all personal preference. There are some of the erlier one's that are almost ice blue in color. I don't like them.

Look at the Lumens that is a measure of brightness, then the Kelvin or just K that is a measure of whiteness . I used a Lumens meter but was changing out the fixtures it took 2 of the square adhesive ones to equal one incandescent

Reminder. I did not check base of bulb before ordering. My BT Cruiser has the wedge base not metal. Had to reorder.

A few weeks after I got my Motor Coach, I replaced all the lamps in my coach with white LEDs. I am extremely happy with white LED lights.
