Question about switching to LED

I searched the forums but did not find a specific answer.
If I want to change out my standard 12v 1124 interior bulbs to LED, can I use any LED as long as it matches the 1124?
I have no dimmers in the coach.
Thank You.

Yes.

Additionally, I would suggest paying attention to color temperature- "warm" versus "cool".

If you like the look of your lights now, go "warm". If you like harsh white lights, go "cool"

Anyone know what the replacement bulb number is for the pancake lights? Looking at LED bulbs also.

Welcome to iRV2
First post I see.
Listings for led bulbs usually cross reference to the bulb number they replace , I'm not sure what bulb you mean by " pancake " , but if it's small bulb with wires wrapped around a glass end where the bulb pushes in ; that bulb number is 911, and there are a multitude of replacement styles.
The bulbs are available in flat one side mounted leds , 360 degree leds and entire 2" square led boards with a wire and plug in.
If this doesn't sound like what your after , please post a picture of the bulb your after.

Thanks Skip426. Sorry I assumed most rv'ers knew what a pancake light was. You are correct in assuming the ones with the wires. I appreciate the input. My Monaco Knight has a couple of these lights in the closet and the bay's and I prefer the coolness of the LED's. It was my first post. Been searching mostly for the last couple of years. Thanks again and happy trails.

LED's

Be sure and replace red colored lenses with RED LEDs. I learned this after buying several white LEDS to replace turn and break lights. I believe this is also true about amber lenses.
You will also need to replace flasher unit.
