RV Vanity Bulbs -> Anyone tried these LED replacements?

Hey everyone,

Figured I'd start a new thread on this. We've replaced most of the bulbs in our coach w/ LEDs except for our vanity lights. By vanity lights I mean the three above our bathroom mirror that look like this:



I'd like to replace with a similar-looking bulb and since it's visible I'd like it to be a covered bulb (not bare LEDs) in preferably warm white color. So far I've found 3 potential replacements, but I'd like to ask if anyone has actually tried these & what the light was like.

Here are the ones I've found:

These look good and are bright, but I'm worried about color temp (4000K is really higher than I like)
http://www.rvledbulbs.com/product-p/18-0914.htm

Here's a warm white, but lower lumens. Not sure if they are bright enough
Green LongLife 9090105 LED Replacement Vanity Light Bulb with 20-99/1156 base 130 Lumens 12v or 24v Warm White : Amazon.com : Automotive

And these ones are warm white, but look a bit odd
welcome to jclampstand.com!
See JC-24SMD-AB-P VANITY BULB about half way down

If anyone has tried any of these I'd love to know!!

Nina

I'm way too Thrifty to spend that kind of money for any Light bulb regardless of How long it may last! Presently We have 3 Of The Corncob (Exposed LED)Style Lamps that provide plenty of Light.

In retrospect if I had been able to find the Ordinary Incandescent Bulbs when I needed to replace just One I would have just carried on with the High Draw Bulbs as We rarely use those particular Lamps. I Broke off One of the Good Bulbs while attempting to remove it from the fixture. I was trying to move it over one space...Duh!

We did all of ours a while back, I guess we got lucky as we liked all our replacements. The first link looks identical to ours, but can't be sure they're the same. Ours are all frosted on the outside and the 3 put out plenty of nice light.

Put all strip lights in the flouresents, 2 strips per fixture which has worked well. There are 1 or 2 I think I'll add 1 more strip to for more light.

We use the ones from rvledbulbs.com and we like them. They are a bit brighter than the originals but still not glaring. The DW approves and that is the ultimate test for me!

I recently purchased 3 LED 200 lumen bright light - not natural - bulbs for the bathroom vanity. My wife loves the brightness for putting on make-up.
They are the star bright bulbs. They are LEDs on a half circle truck light. To us they look modern and are very pleased.
We also have been converting all our bulbs to LED. Good luck.

This is what I used in our vanity strip: http://www.rvpartscenter.com/Product...ID=191&CID=691

They adjust do you can aim the output.

I bought them at Quartszite for about $20 each.

I go down this road too. Upgrade the lighting where you 'live,' and I hope you're not living in the 'Loo.'
