With mine I stripped bulbs and ballasts and used stick on LEDS from Ebay. Only about 5 bucks for a 15 foot roll and another 5 bucks for connectors. You can cut them whatever length you need .Been couple of years now and they work great. Just be sure to get the right chip and colour. EBay has a great article on it. I think I ordered 3528 with 600 led per roll. Also used some 300 per roll but had to use 3 strips per fixture instead of 2. There are several different chip intensities and spacing so be careful what you order. Bought a roll of cool white and roll of warm and used them in different areas. also believe there is a utube video on installation.

We outfitted our MH with M4 Elite series bulbs as they use Samsung LED's. Before changing from the incandescent bulbs I measured the power consumption with my Fluke amp meter, it was right @ 27a with every light on. After the LED conversion it measured only 4.1a. I also noticed that the converters cooling fan never kicks on now, so I've saved +23amps\hr which is great if you boondock like us. We used the 5500k Cool White, but I have since replaced some of the lights we use at nighttime with the 4500k Natural White as their less harsh on the eyes at night. These were Top Rated LED's by several Web & Magazine articles.....

I also changed every light in the RV and basement with warm white LED lights off of
EBAY and all from China. All have worked fine and you can't tell the different in light from the original bulbs. For the fluorescent I used the double LED strips in a 15 foot roll, cut then into lengths that fit inside each fixture, wiring 4 to 5 stick-on strips together at one end to connect to the coach wiring. Its' a DIY project but these fixtures seem to be as bight as the fluorescent bulbs were. Total cost was maybe $50 to $60. For example:
10x 1156 Car Warm White 5050 SMD 27 LED Tail Brake Stop Light Bulb 12V MA238 | eBay
Double LED strip warm white roll, use non waterproof in selection :
