While some vehicles may work OK with LEDs, chances are the LED bulbs will not draw enough current for the turn signal flashers to operate (the flasher operates thermally). Also, with more and more functions being controlled by the vehicle's computer, it's possible the low current draw of the LEDs may fool the computer into thinking the bulbs are burned out, which may give you an error code or other warning.

converting to LED's

No problem vol445. In matching up bulbs, just compare base and type. FYI, most vehicle bulbs are 1056 or 1057.
As for interior bulbs - many are the G4 base.

When we were in Quartzsite last year at the RV event, I bought a couple of each color of LED available....warm white and cool or pure white. We tested them out in the MH that night and the warm white replacements were nicer to experience. They made the wood paneling in the MH look pleasingly warm while the cool white bulbs made the wood paneling look washed out and not very attractive. As we were camped with about 15 other MHs, they all took a look at the difference and all chose the warm white as the better color.

We have converted all of our interior Halogen to the Warm White LED's. We tried the Pure White first, but as Full.Monte has found - the Warm White look much nicer. What is amazing is the cost of these bulbs. Camping World, Bulbs+ and others are asking $15 or more - Per Bulb. The exact same items are available on E-Bay for $15 for a pack of 10 - and that includes the shipping.
