I had changed out all of the fixtures in my last trailer. Had only one LED panel partially fail in about a year's worth of use (we snowbirded last winter). In other words, constant, day in, day out usage as opposed to the weekend use for most RV'ers.
Replacing the lights in the new FW is definitely on the list and that 1st link showed a sales price so I can save about $40.

Cablerum, I also ordered some smaller bulbs similar to those, I just wish they had their Lumen rating on them. My goal is to replace the switches in the dual fixtures to on/off/on. On side will have the bright lights and the other side will have the dimmer bulb. Biggest issue I am having is I cannot locate a drop in replacement switch, I know they are out there. When I get the trailer back from the dealer next week, I will pull a light down and try to find a manufactures mark.

I bought some of those and get hot, very very hot, like 185 degrees!. Wished I had not bought them. I've used some of other LEDs that were not the panels that are not very hot at all. Not quite as bright but you could actually touch them when they were on.

Yep - get your sample - test it - and then order quickly from the exact same vendor and preferably the same actual auction. Things change fast on ebay.
