LED Light Bulb

I want to change out my original filament style 12V light bulbs to LED. I don't want to change the whole light fixture I just want to change the bulbs. I would prefer something a little "warmer" than the traditional LED Blue. Any suggestions?

I replaced a lot of bulbs in an older trailer. There are many options for bulbs, and for color temperature too. Some of the bulbs look peculiar, but they sure work.

I think I got mine from superbrightled.com, but I am sure there are other sources.

Personally I like the higher color temperatures. Lots of options in 3000K lights, though.

Lots of choices. Probably 1156 bulbs. You can get warm white which will be similar to the incandescent bulb.

LED Light Bulb

In 2015 I replaced the indoor bulbs in my Bigfoot motorhome with these bulbs from LEDwholesalers:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003TKI4VU/
I thought the warm white color was pleasing. In fact, when I purchased a new Bigfoot trailer in 2017 I didnít like the light of the LED lights that came with the new rig and missed the LED bulbs I had installed in the motorhome.
I believe LEDwholesalers makes various types of bulbs.

Cheaper, inferior bulbs will have a single voltage. Not good. Get LEDs that have a voltage range at least to 16 volts. Bulbs without a range tend to self destruct with the higher voltages seen when charging.

Following up on my previous post, here is the direct link to the LEDwholesalers page for the bulb I used. You could probably contact them with any questions.
https://www.ledwholesalers.com/v2/in...7&search=ba15s

Iíll also mention that we lived in the motorhome with these bulbs for 4 months as campground hosts powered by a portable solar suitcase and a 2000 watt inverter generator as backup. We have used the motorhome in RV parks with our 30 amp cord and at home for guests plugged into 15 amp power. We never had a bulb go out

I feel itís notable that the company is still in business 7 years after I bought my bulbs.
However, Iím sure there are many more options out there today, so shopping around is wise. I just thought I would share our experience

Yes, very true.

Thereís too many 12 volt design bulbs to list. Every RV has a variety of styles and wattage. You have to remove each and every one you want to change, to see what youíre equipped with to investigate an alternative.
