LED Lights in place of the type 921 bulbs

I just ordered 14 (they come in qty 2 so I ordered 7) on Ebay. I hope they are bright enough. Very few of these LED listings list lumen output on Ebay.

The item number on Ebay is 300517613226.

Now the waiting begins!

I expect them to not be as bright as the stock bulbs but I was also juggling cost vs output. I don't want to spend $10 plus per bulb. 14 of these cost me less than $12 so worst case I hate them and I am not out a whole lot of money.

Well I got the bulbs and they are fairly bright in front but not to the sides. I will need to try something else.

Check out some of this guys posts on LED lights. From what I`ve read, he knows his LED lights and gets them from Command Electronics. I have not installed any as of yet. -Lee

In my posting, I should have mentioned some of the quirky things about LED lights. All LED are directional to some extent. Some are very directional, like a flashlight. The least directional will cover about a 120 degree pattern. When considering which way to go, try to find out if your particular mount orientation will work with that LED's directional pattern. One thing is sure, the light pattern will not be as wide as a filament light.

When the LED makers specify the light intensity, that number is for the on-axis beam, and off-axis is always less, just a matter of how much less. Some times they will publish data which will show you how much drop-off occurs off-axis.

The LED light pattern and intensity vary widely from model to model. It would be nice if there were more consistancy.

Wow, $25 a bulb! My last Jayco I had for 10 years and never replaced a bulb, except for an outside running light bulb. I think I'll just wait to see if any burn out before I look at replacing them on my new 2010 model.
