2012 365BHS light bulbs???

Thinking about changing the inside bulbs in our 2012 365BHS to LED's. Are the bulbs with the 2 wire pins considered G4's? There's a place on ebay that sells "24 SMD white light" LED's for $2.10 each. Figured for the price they might be worth trying.

Thanks in advance.

careful, the white lights are very bright. If you want light like you currently have look at warm white.

According to my Bulb Cross Reference Chart, you are correct. The double pin bulbs are G-4 bulbs. You may want to consider the warm white (or 3500 Kelvin rather than the 5500 Kelvin) rather than the white light. I have heard some folks complaining about the white light being too bright and giving off a light that is a bit too "institutional" and blue. Speaking for myself, I have the warm white and am very pleased with the light color and output. Hard to believe a bulb can put out that much light with only 1.5 watts.
Good luck

X2, be careful of the "Bright White" LEDs, you want most likely "Warm White"

If you have the Halogen Puck Lights, the G4 LED is the replacement

This ebay site (http://www.ebay.com/itm/200751678998...84.m1497.l2649) sells both warm and white. I like the clean look that the white LED's put out, but don't want it being too overbearing. Decisions, decisions....

Are you sure you have 20 of those style lights? I only have 2 bulbs in my camper with the 2 pins like that and then 21 of the 921 style bulbs.

jdorant,

All of the overhead lights, except over my kitchen table in mine are these G4 type bulbs. Think I only have about 12 fixtures in total, but for the price I will put the extra ones up just in case I need them.
