My 2014 rig came with all LED. Except for the fridge bulb. It burned out and I replaced it today with LED from Amazon. $1.89 plus shipping.

Do these LEDs work with dimmers? Our 2012 Discovery has dimmers on all overhead lights.

Some work with some dimmers others do not. Not all LEDs nor all dimmers the same. My dimmers reduce the voltage. My cheap LEDs dim 3 steps on a 6 step dimmer.

Buy one and give it a try or wait for a response from someone with the same RV as yours.

When using LED's both lights will only work if one LED is shining down and the other LED bulb has to be plugged in and face upward, thus loosing total brightness ? why?
This is because LED bulbs are polarized unlike regular filament bulbs. In other words they have a positive and a negative terminal. If you can get at the wiring in the light fitting, swapping the red and black wires on the "upside down" side should fix the problem.

To be certain simply make sure the description says dimmable. As stated above not all are.

I struggle to see the value in switching to LEDs unless you do a lot of boondocking and want to max battery life... but that's why I have a generator.
Cost aside, I don't like the light they give off. Even the warm ones. And many seem to flicker or pulse.
I have tried all sorts of bulbs at home including compact fluorescent, and none seem to really last longer or make as nice a light as incandescent bulbs. I did change many of the bulbs in our TT to a lower wattage as the originals are just too bright. I keep an assortment of 2w 4w and 6w on hand from the landscape lighting department at Home Depot. Cheap mood lighting. LOL

I replaced all my fluorescent tubes and other bulbs in my coach with LED's from Amazon at a small fraction of the cost of many other dealers and they have all worked perfectly.

Good Luck!

I got mine from Aliexpress at a fraction of the cost of what I could find on Amazon or other retail sites.

Check out technorv.com. They have a lot of good info on led lights for RVs. We replaced all our bulbs. The thing you need to be careful ins that the batteries can drop in output which can damage the bulbs. There are some made just for RVs. I also found the same bulbs on Amazon a bit cheaper.

General heat buildup and light fixture heat damage. Even if you don't boondocks, these 10 or 20W halogen fixtures can use a lot of power.

I changed over to "ALL" LED bulbs, took them all back out, except the outdoor "scare" lights, Wife did not like the lighting , nor did I ........ Hard to read a book with the LED's I bought.........Maybe not the right one's, $$$$$$ maybe needed to spend more money..........? I thought I spent enough though........Just did not like the lighting/color of them.

Many large rv dealers have functional displays so you get some idea of color and brightness.
