LED's - Finally Found THE Ones for Me

Finally I found the LED's that I like. Not too bright, not blue and as close to the original incandescent bulbs.

So, I tried these first - they were more bright and more blue than the incandescent bulbs - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I bought these next - they were less blue but still too bright for me - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Then I bought these - and finally I am done with my search - They are slightly odd because I am so used to not being able to look at the lights - these only put the light down and out vs the other LED's or incandescent bulbs so you get the light but do't have to turn away from the lights themselves - hopefully that makes sense - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I think I will have to buy a couple more - I bought two 12 packs - but I think I have 25 or 26 lights. I need to count them again. I replaced 12 tonight while testing in the storage lot. With all 12 lights on the voltage dropped 0.1vdc on my meter.

Thanks for posting this review of sorts. I'm picking up a new (left over) 2016 X254 Tuesday and will use your findings to replace any incandescent bulbs in the hopes of achieving similar results.

I have 4 of those installed in the reading lights above the bed and the rear chairs [all singles] because they're slightly brighter than the others. I still prefer the others for the ceiling lights as they are not as bright. Don't forget your outside "yellow" light/step light [if applicable] as well. I left my scare lights alone because I rarely use them.

Yes, I am going to do all the lights. I too rarely use that light, but I figure I am changing all the rest, I might as well do that one too. Same with the one under the steps - only turns on when the awning LED's turn on, but we use them often.

You might consider using different bulbs in different locations, especially since you already have a ton from the first two experiments. For instance, does the light under the step or the one under the orange plastic cover really have to be "perfect"? Just sayin'...

I use warm white predominantly, but have the cool white in the bath and some kitchen fixtures, and in the outdoor fixtures.

I have had your posted choice LEDs installed in my trailer for 3 years now. I agree they are nice. I bought 2 packs and found a couple didn't work right off the bat, and maybe 1 or 2 have failed over the course of 3 seasons. Pretty good if you ask me, considering the cost.
