I've tried a few different ones. Your lighting is PWM which means the dimming occurs by sending power to the bulb at a certain number of pulses per second. The incandescent and halogen bulbs don't flicker but most LED bulbs will flicker when the lighting is dimmed. They work fine at full bright and flicker more as you dim it more. I think the ones I used were G4 10 watt equivalent.

If you find some that don't flicker when dimmed let us know.

I use dimmable LEDs and have no flicker. I have no G4s that I know of, and found this that might work:

The OP has the Intellitec Multiplexing System with Pulse Width Modulating lighting. Does your coach have that system?

Check these out.

https://www.amazon.com/Green-LongLif.../dp/B006E5JIJY

Over the past few years (Yuma Flea Market) I've replaced all of the halogens in our '06 Dynasty except for the bedroom bulbs which don't see a lot of service. (I have lots of "used" spares, now).

Three take-aways.

First, the leads are a little long so you have to cut off about 3/32" or so.

Second, whatever you do, BE SURE AND GET BULBS RATED FOR WELL OVER 12 VDC. These are rated for an operating range from 8 volts to 30 volts. Some charging systems can produce instantaneous values that can be fatal to LED's.

Third, these absolutely do work well with the mid 2000's Intellitec multiplex system devices. Knock on wood, but our failure rate has been phenomenally low! In fact, out of about 30 that I've put in with an average age now of probably 3 years, we've had zero failure. (We "live" in our coach approximately 50% of the time, so these lights have been extensively used.). We did lose a couple of the early attempts that were not rated for the higher voltages. But these "Green" Longlife devices have been great, for us.

These bulbs are for 110-220 volt use. Id be surprised if these would work in a 12 volt application.
I wonder if the Amazon description is correct.

I just ordered a bunch of LED bulbs from M4Products. They are a small company from southern California and they are RV'rs themselves. They reply to questions almost immediately. Their website is extremely helpful, showing pictures with measurements and details helpful to finding the right light or bulb.

These are the bulbs I switched to, and the same place I got them !

One thing I noticed; if I dim them at all, I can hear them buzzing!

With Intellitec PWM dimming you do not need dimmable LED's as it is always sending 12 Volts to the bulb.
