Cheap $1.49 LED direct 921 Replacements

I have a bunch of the Chinese import/eBay variety installed in my 184bh, so far the biggest issue has been an iffy socket connection from the little pigtail connectors.... But light output and brightness has been great along with substantial energy savings.

I may either add some solder/tin to the leads on the "bulb" leads or add some copper paint from a rear defroster repair kit, seems like the thin wire on the connector is making iffy contact at best. Not a bad upgrade for $50 even with some tinkering time required.

OK, trying a couple of others....just ordered two of these.

There are a couple of fixtures in our 5er that we feel we need bright lights (over the sink and over the table and a couple of reading lights) otherwise dimmer mood lighting would be fine. That's what I used the last purchase experiment on. Will report back in a few weeks.

Thanks for the info. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you think of these options.

Best regards,
Doug

Just put these two in, over the kitchen sink where my wife wanted bright light. She was very happy with what they put out. I'm dragging the RV to town and back in a few days so want to see how they ride. Also, I'm wanting to take a photo when dark of the three bulb types in there, the first two LEDs we got (dimmer) the original bulbs and these. Will post if it turns out being worthwhile.
So far though, a winner. The package says 260-280 lumens, and compares the original bulbs as being 21 watt to these at 2.94 watts. Is nice that they do swivel so can be oriented as needed.

Thanks for the update.
They're a little pricey, but at least they're an option for the areas where equally bright is a necessity.
Looking forward to any pictures you get. It will also be nice to know how well they hold in the fixtures during transport.

Best regards,
Doug

OK, got a photo of the three bulb types in the RV. I've numbered them in the photo. #1 is one of the original non-LED 921 base bulbs. #2 is the first LED I mentioned in this thread, not so bright but will be good for general room lighting when coming and going from RV at night, or when watching TV. #3, over the kitchen sink, are a couple of the most recent LEDs. Hard to tell in the photo, but these are two flat panel style of lights, each has 20 elements and all are facing straight down, so much brighter when below this than the photo shows.Click image for larger version

Cosmik Debris,
Nice post. Thanks for the pictures.
Thanks for everyone that has contributed to this thread.
There's such a wide range of options and prices.
Make sense that a combination of options posted here can be utilized in a way to meet specific needs, reduce your power consumption and get the most bang for your buck.

Best regards,
Doug

So, had reason to drag the 5th wheel to town and back, one mile each way on dirt road and the lights stayed seated and were fine. If someone wants bright LEDs, swivel base, and don't mind the cost, these are winners.

Seems these might do the trick for those areas you don't need the really bright stuff; same family as Cosmik Debris posted but less bright:
