I was replacing my 921 incandescent bulbs with LEDs and when I opened up the bunk area light I saw this LED in the fixture. Man this really throws some light. I know that is power draw is higher than the bulb I was going to install but I didn't see a way to remove it. Is anyone familiar with this? I could figure out how it comes out and I didn't want to break it.

I got some of the "cheapie" LEDs from Amazon and EBay. I love them but I needed extras cuz I had about 10% of them fail within the first year.

But you can't beat the price, I got 20 bulbs for $10.99. I guess I'll see how long they last. There supposed to be made here in the US.

My favorite source for RV LED's is Cabin Bright | Innovative 12 volt LED Lighting.

High quality, excellent customer service, reasonably priced and you order the quantity that you need and no need to order 10% more due to defectives.

I have been using LED's from this company for over 3 years and I full time so mine get used a lot.

My converter fan turned on every time I flipped the light switch on, they were using so much power. I replaced my ceiling lights with these LED and all is quiet, and real bright.

I think they are called flat panel led's. I looked into them a little a few months ago. I can't remember too much about them. If I remember correctly they have double sided 3M tape holding them up. There should be no reason you can't just tear them out.

Why not leave it as it is LED and draws less current than incandescent? Or unplug it and leave it in the fixture and put your new bulb in?

I have no intention of replacing it unless I think it draws to much current. If it does I'll change it with one of the led bulbs I replaced the other incandescents with. I might want to have either that led or another like it for under the counter next to the sink.

I understand 80 Cruiser Rod.

It is like incandescent bulbs of different wattage's. I have ordered three different sets of LED's so far. First ones were not as bright as originals, and flickered after a while. Next set was much brighter and worked great, but were too glaring over the couch and dinette.

But now I have plenty of spares!
