I'm going to assume my 2013 RV trailer has the 921's.....for all the overhead lights. In our old tt (2005) those bulbs sure burned hot....I was thinking about replacing the 921's in my new tt to #1). help keep the interior cooler and #2). save battery power. We have a stay in June that has us on battery power for 4 days. Last summer during a 5 day non-electric campground stay (Smoky Mtn.) the battery only lasted 3-1/2 days...
Like you, I don't understand that stuff either. Just know that the LEDs that I bought are just as bright as the OEM 921 bulbs that I replaced. They are also WAY cooler. I can touch the lit LED, the 921 would leave a 3rd degree blister on my finger tips.

Over the past year I have replaced just about every bulb for led lights. I want to be able to camp dry and use so little power. I do like the white light better than the original bulbs.

I found the LED bulbs I used to be equivalent to or maybe a tad brighter than the original 921 bulbs (maybe a little whiter than brighter). I know there are brighter LED's out there, but these seem to be the closest I have found to the original 921's.

Thanx....

I paid a visit to my TT in storage today to double check my bulbs. They are 921C's...So with the above posts I think I'll go ahead and buy some off FeeBay.

Tell me about it...been there done it....

As far as switching over to LED's for my lighting. I have a ? about why the "back light" in my radio / CD player stays on all the time even when dry camping. In our old 2005 Aerolite tt we could get 5 nights dry camping even with taking showers each night. The new 2013 we get a max of 3 to 3-1/2 days before the frig will no longer cycle because of a low battery. If I take the fuse out for the radio, a red light comes on at the fuse panel telling me I have a blown fuse. I'm thinking about gaining access to the back of the radio and putting in a on/off switch to switch it off when we dry camp. We have 4 nights reserved at Mammoth Caves in June so that will be a test to see if these two mod's will help....The only other thing would be to get a bigger deep cycle battery or a small genny...

When the frig would no long cycle because of the low battery, I hooked up the the tow vehicle to the tt and top charged the battery for 15-20 minutes twice a day.

The new radios/CDs have a constant low draw to keep the the memory alive.

I would chose at least 13-5050. 25-1210 will possibly be dimmer. As its only equal to 8-5050. I have 13-5050 and they are great replacement. I would rather go brighter if possible. That's why I was not changing to fast. Leds are not rated by Watts and i had to try different combinations and the 921's are limited to 13-5050 while 1141's are available in much higher intencity of 25-5050 or even up to 102-1210.

I put Led disc in all my lighting and the out side lights as well. Mine were a flat disk and had 10 leds on each. Light is a bilt bluer but will save on the juice for sure. I got a 10 pack for $ 13.25 each and ended up ordering 2 packs and have a couple of spares. PJD

I ordered a 10 pack from an ebay seller and got the wrong connectors. I sent him $4 and he sent me 10 of the correct connectors direct from China. Can't ask for better service than that. The lights work great. We put one in one side of every light in the camper and have 1 to spare. I got warm white, 24 LED's on a flat surface we are supposed to sticky tape to the top of the light. So far we haven't stuck them up yet...Fear of commitment issues I guess. ;-)

That sounds great. Maybe you want to post the ebay link or seller number for others. I am likely going to do this some time after I pick up my trailer this spring.

This is the seller we used and the same connector I ended up with. Mine has only 24 led but I would like the 36 also. The light from the 24 led's is plenty and my husband thinks they are very bright. He has blue eyes and could probably see great in a dark cave....I think the light is just right.

Thank you tibbar:
Those in the link are actually 48 LED lights. But no matter, I just wanted the seller so that I could order the lights that will fit my situation. Thank you.
Also, did these boards fit inside the dome lights in your camper or did you mount them outside the fixture?
Bruce

The LED's fit inside the dome lights. They have a peel and stick back but we haven't stuck them to the top of the fixture, they are just laying on the plastic dome. I didn't know quite what to order and went by the light output mentioned in the bulb description. I did know I wanted "warm white". This seller has a ton of different ones to choose from.

THanks, I kind of like the whiter light...not sure about the wife though...I will set up a consult with her before I order. I have saved the seller.
Thanks,
Bruce
