By far the Best "LED" lighting replacement available

I have been told and read numerous threads as well as researched many sites and I can not figure out who has the best, cheapest "LED" light replacements! We just got back from the huge Quartzsite extravaganza and there were several different vendors (all busy I might ad) and I could not get the time or attention to discuss! Please if you know of a good site or have used a reliable vendor to replace our "Very Hot" lights with the softer LED lighting...I would sure appreciate your knowledge!

This is what I need:
12v20w (quantity 13)
12v10w (quantity 12)
RG921 (quantity 6)

I was hoping to create this thread to have a common place to learn about the ever changing LED lighting.

I have not been able to find LED lamps that are similar in color to the incandescents. Even the ones at 3200K are too white. They need to be around 2700K like the household 120 lamps that provide a nice warm glow.

Hi Palazzoteam,

This is probably not the right place to post this but since you mentioned that you wanted a thread to " learn about the ever changing LED lighting" Here's my question, what are these campgrounds going to look like at night once we all have this LED lighting? I'm thinking Vegas maybe. Our coach came with Led in the awnings, LED under the slide-outs and LED under the perimeter of the whole coach. We've parked next to folks where the LED lights changed colors and flashed all night. From what I've seen on these forums, there are going to be a lot more LED RV's on the road this year It used to be just a scare light and maybe a campfire, now I'm wondering if it's going to look like Saturday Night Fever!!

Any thoughts??

Is there going to be a " quiet time" for LED lights??

I think that we are talking about interior replacement lamps, but just to be safe, I do have 27' string of outside LED's. It provides much better lighting than my OEM outdoor light.

I should have clarified: these are all for indoor use (not changing colors)... With that said I do like the LED strip that folks are adding to the awning(not changing colors continually however). I'm mostly wanting these for extended battery life (dry camp a lot)

The inside LED lights are great, less power consumption, heat, great deal!! We've been to a few shows, and wow!! outside LED's are on everything from a pop up to a Prevost!! There are several threads on this site where people are going crazy adding outside LED"s. Jeff Foxworthy talked about rednecks and "shiny things" These new LED lights might be the ultimate RV " shiny thing" I think we'll all get a chance to see when the RV parks get full this Summer. What the heck, it might actually be fun!!

I went to "M4 products" for my LEDs. They explain a lot of things about lights, most of it way over my head! Look them up, it may help you decide what to do.

I did M4 Products as well. Beware, on my previous TT I did the economy units


and did not realize they were only 150 lumens. In my current FW I have the Cool White (bright white) 5050's



in the range hood, over sink, and bathroom fixtures for the pure white 5500 Kelvin light they produce and the Warm White (soft white) 5050's everywhere else for the warm white 3200 Kelvin light they produce. Both 5050's are 360 lumens and equal to the stock bulbs.

I also use M4 LED products to upgrade all my interior lighting. They were very responsive and helpful and had competitive pricing.

I have had very good success buying my LED change overs on ebay. The prices have been great and I have had no problem with the quality. Studying the brightnesses of the bulb is the key. G4 LED | eBay

Spent time on M4 products web site last night, lots to learn....I have a call into them(confusing to me) but really good site....keep the comments/referrals coming please! I would have thought that most folks would prefer the softer light...but sure see more bright white light(is there some advantage over soft)?

I replaced the inside halogens with these... quite happy with them (though they are whiter than the halogens).
