Thia is the seller I used on Amazon. Very happy with all products. I used the warm white all around and have had no failures. Many come in 10 packs.

Shame, you're really missing out on a lot of great deals. I've been buying from Ebay for many years and have never been disappointed.

All my LEDs came from Ebay. 15 flat panel bulbs with 48 LEDs each. $21 total cost. We're on our 3rd summer with them and they have been flawless. Even if one or two die, no real loss.

I Google the bulb type that I want to replace (bulb type) like I was trying to get the same bulb as a replacement looking for specs for color and lumens. Color is measured in Kelvin (K) and the lumens indicate brightness. The 921 bulb seems to be real popular in TT's (they look like an old flashbulb to me). A replacement bulb is around 260 lumen and 3000K.
This link only shows lumens
LED's may also be advertised with a color description (cool-white, bright white, daylight...), I avoid these and look for something close to the specs for the original bulb.
So, in the above example if I find an LED replacement for the 921 and the seller says it's 250 lumen (slightly dimmer), 3100K (2800-3200K is a pretty good color for my tastes) and has a good rating I'd probably order some. They like to sell them in lots of 10 or 12 and I like to order extras.

No need to hammer on it. All I did was point out that he's missing out on good deals. If you choose not to use Ebay, that's not my loss.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the info. I've only made one purchase on eBay and that was many yrs ago. It went well, there were no issues. Maybe I'm a little old school. I've heard too many stories of sellers ripping off buyers and Vice versa so I just have no interest in eBay.
Sometimes there is just too many choices and I get a little bit of paralysis by analysis. I know you take a chance buying anything on the 'net.
One thing in Canada we take a big hit on the $$ if paying in US funds.

These are the ones I use. Not the cheapest, but not all that expensive. I've never had one fail yet, and never had the adhesive come off either. Color and brightness are true to the original bulbs in my trailer. I just usually order a set whenever I'm ordering something else from The Jungle (Amazon) and over about the last year or so I've almost got my entire trailer changed over.

I tried several of the other cheaper offerings and wasn't satisfied until I found these. The others had a high failure rate, color was off, or brightness was off. Whatever you buy, make sure the Kelvin rating is listed numerically; the terms "white" or "warm white", etc. are somewhat subjective in my experience. I ordered some cheaper elements that were labeled "warm white" and were WAY higher than that; I would have put them at "bright white" at least. They made my trailer look like a mobile crime scene lab!
