What LED lights are on your rig?

There are a million different types, sizes, brands, styles of led that I can go with. What are you using on your rig, where did get em, what size, manufacture??????? Anything special you learned on the install? Are they any good? Opinions please, I figure i'm gonna need about 60ft or more.

I bought a roll of waterproof (mistake should have got the non water proof) LED's and I'm replacing the florescent when the ballast goes out. I got them from these guys:

I have replaced my 20 W halogens with hockey puck leds from EBAY. The biggest thing I've found is you want 200 lumems to be the same brightness as the halogen. I prefer the "warm white". I've also found the fewer, but larger LEDs on a substrate are better. For $ 3-5.00 each, I take the risk buy 2 or 3, test them then order more.

I am slowly replacing all my 1141 type lamps with assorted LED's. ECO-LED ****CW units seem to work well

I replaced the 10 watt Hockey Puck downlights with the same ECO unit but without the bayonet adapter.. MUCH more light, very little heat less power consumption

I replaced the tail/stop/turn lights with Barjan' LED's (identical pop in replacement units)

I plan on getting some back up lights to replace the Florcesents on a replacement basis, Starting with the big one over the sink cause it is a PROBLEM chid (it generates too much electronic noise on my favorite ham band)

I'm liking LED's.

I should have put exterior in the original post....
Clicky....didnt realize it would make a clickable link.
I realize what they are for, just trying to get feedback and suggestions.
Have you used these yourself?

You have to cut off the waterproofing if you are going to hook up the lights. Sometimes you cut too deep and loose an LED. Unless you NEED waterproof they are not worth the trouble. They work fine if you'r careful when exposing the part you have to hook the solder less connectors to where you have to solder the wires on.
Just a step you don't need to take if you do not need waterproof.

I replaced all the fluorescent tubes in our coach with LED replacement tubes. More light with half the current draw...what's not to like about that! The ballast is not used, so there's one less component to worry about.

We've been very pleased with them.

I will be upgrading to these soon:
The Brightest Ba15s LED Light Bulb Replacement - Warm White Color - 2nd Generation with 66 LED's - Single Contact Base - 10-30V DC : Amazon.com : Automotive
They are a bit pricy but the reviews on them are excellent and they put out 300 lumen and are plug-n-play with most standard RV fixtures.

I have a mix of those and their smaller brother in my RV and love em. They are the first I have found that give the warm look of tungsten and are plenty bright.
For some of my fixtures I used one of those on one side and the smaller on the other for just the right amount of light because two of them were just too darn bright. I can't say enough good things about them for the improvement in our RV.

Here is the smaller one and it is still 200 lumens:
Brightech LED BA15s - Warm White Color- Bayonet Base 36LEDs SMD Bulb - 2nd Generation with 36 LEDs - Replacement for #1156 1141 1073 1093 1129 93 - : Amazon.com : Automotive
