No more so than "Best" and "Expensive"

My question is which would give the better value?

We purchased our G4 replacement bulbs from Hero-LED. The G4 20w "equivalent" bulbs we purchased were sold in packages of 5 for 17.99 a package ... which translates to roughly $3.60 per bulb. The 20w "equivalent" bulbs are constructed using 12 SMD5030 LED segments. I read good things about 'em from several folks on a forum someplace - and felt that the $3.60 per bulb price point sounded about right ... it ain't at the very bottom ... nor is it at the very top. We've only been using them for a week or so - and are happy with the "color" and the brightness of the bulbs we purchased. We didn't suffer any "out of the box" failures ... or any "infant mortality" on the 60 or so bulbs we installed - however, it's still too early to form an opinion about their durability. But, it's so far soo good at this point.

I replaced all coach lights with these 36 LED panels. I soldered the panels into the fixture and glued them to the fixtures.

These put out about the same light as an incandescent, and about the same color. These are warm white, cost about $2 each in lots of 10.

I also added dimmers on a couple of them.

Ordered 921 LED lights from Amazon.cz and paid less than $2cdn per Led. Work great.

if the do not work when you first install just turn around as they are polar sensitive.

LED Retrofit Light Bulbs for RVs and Trailers


For the 1141 replacements I have three ceiling fixtures with two each, the outside "porch light" and a single bulb fixture over the shower. For those I ordered Two of the Goldstars 11568305 LED replacement from an Amazon seller, 250 lumen (about the same as a new 1141) to try them out. I was impressed and ordered a 6 pack of them from a different seller on Amazon. These have 1141/1156 bayonet base and a flat panel with aobut 24 LED elements in them. Nice plastic housing, nothing exposed, and it swivels in the base, so no matter the orientation of the bayonets on the base, you can point the light where it needs to go. The translucent plastic lenses on the light fixtures serve to spread the light to the sides, so the flat panels work really well on the ceiling. Only regular bulbs left are a 921 over the stove (afraid heat would damage an LED there) and one 1141 in the water/dump service bay light, not worth changing it.

Goldstar flat panel LED 1141 replacement.

Don't buy any that are rated at only 12 volts!
Make sure they are rated for 12 to 24 volts.

I replaced all mine on my last camper and on my current RV a little over two years ago with the Gold Star brand on Amazon. Everything got replaced including the compartment, bathroom vanity, and spot reading lights. All work fine and no failures.
