I would go with the 42 LED version for max power savings. Same brightness as the 25 LED version but close to half the power. But even the 25 LED bulbs are 90% less than the stock 921's.
I've decided to replace the two lights above the couch, I was not sure if I really wanted to in case the orangish original lights were better for reading. However after realizing how much heat the give if, I've decided to replace them with LED. After replacing these last two lights, my entire X20E will then be outfitted with LED (on the inside).

Looks like dl-autotech does not have any more of the 42LED 921 bulbs I bought last time. I'm getting 2 of the 28 LED bulbs. They look to be the same as the 25LED but with 4 LEDs on the end instead of just 1.

It just amazes me how much heat the original bulbs give us.

Two night out at a site without electric.

Ran the fridge, water heater, lights, and water pump, going though almost the whole fresh water tank (~26 gal or so). At the end of the camping trip, the gauge still showed full battery! I give a lot of credit to the LED bulbs!

Or a bad guage? I'm surprised the battery wasn't down at least a bit after running the water pump through a tank of water (assuming the fridge and water heater were running on propane).

With a few things running it would show 2/3, with everything off at the end of trip, it was full.
