I use 40 LED (flat w/ tape backing) SOFT/WARM whiteLED light bulbs, for the 3 ceiling fixtures, and the one over the sofa. The 40 LED flat soft white bulbs are a pretty good match for the old incandescent bulbs. I originally had some of those BRIGHT WHITE (actually blue) bulbs and DW made me remove them as fast as I installed them. The BRIGHT WHITE LED's are rough on the eyes, especially when trying to read. Above the bed I have a few 28 LED SOFT WHITE light assemblies that are just right for night time reading. I was able to get the 40 LED Flat bulb assemblies for around $4 each (Amazon). I sent a few back that claimed to be soft white, but were not even close. I installed 2 66 LED round soft white bulbs in the light above the table.

DW could not tell the difference until I told her to look up, so she is happy and that makes me a HAPPY CAMPER. With all the LED lights turned on in the trailer, the battery monitor dropped 1/10 of a volt when turned on and stayed there for over an hour (got tired of waiting). Can't beat that! These 40 LED bulbs come from China of course, and they sell out fast. I will be ordering a bunch more of the 40 LED soft white bulbs once they get new ones in stock, no expected date yet.

Here are the pics of the leds compared to the incandescent. Can you spot the difference?

If I pull out a bulb and bring it to Walmart, can I match it that way? I'd definitely like to replace them all (if affordable)

I don't think they would and if they did you wouldn't be happy. When picking out leds keep in mind you want at least 250 lumens or more. If you want to have the same warm color as an incandescent look for ones that are 2700 kelvin. The ones in my pics are 3200k and 350 lumens the one over the sink is640 lumens 3200k. If they don't have a lumen rating and a kelvin rating I won't not buy them. Imo

Hey Rebecca....

I have the X23B and I replaced my bulbs with some e-bay LEDs from China. I love them, they have a the warm white look of the incandescents and the intensity is just as bright. I went with the 36 led bulb configuration. Price is under $33 bucks for a 10 pack with free shipping. The adapter they include fits in the socket and are mounted by peel and stick tape.

We bought LEDs from e-bay. 15 replacements for under $25. We love them. They are a little whiter than the incandescent but they are much cooler to the touch.
