Light Bulb Obsolete

We bought a new 2014 Jayco Eagle Premier and cannot replace a light bulb
It's a 5th wheel with a kitchen island with 2 lights that hang over the sink.
One burned out prematurely and I have not been able to find a replacement.
It is a 12V 25W with a BA15D base. This is similar to a standard automotive 1076
The problem is the 1076 is a lower wattage and doesn't light the area like the bulb installed by Jayco.
The stock bulb only has 12V25W markings.
Jayco says I can buy the bulb from my dealer but my dealer and several other RV dealers only have the 1076 bulb
I have searched the internet and have not been able to locate the same bulb.
There are a couple I have found that are 12V25W but the bulb is not the same and it seems all of them are on back order or foreign suppliers.
I have considered an LED but they to expensive to experiment with light levels.

Here's one that may work: BA15D Bulb

Does the bulb you are replacing have two contacts on the bottom and two filaments?

Thank you for your reply but did you even read my post "It is a 12V 25W with a BA15D base". Yes I searched BA15D because searching for a 1076 will only give you 1076 bulbs.
I found a automotive supplier that sells a 3 watt LED 1076. $8 for 2 shipped
Thats cheap enough to experiment with a LED option. If it works I'll post the supplier web address.

Thank You bought 4

Sorry - My browser didn't show your BA15D as a link
I bought 4, Shipping was twice as much as the product
Hope I will be able to test both options LED and incandescent.

Bobbywires, you might take a look at Amazon the next time you are making a purchase where the shipping is so costly. This is not an advertisement for Amazon, but personal experience for the last year has shown that free shipping through the Prime membership pays for itself, if you can find the right product.

Howdy Bobbywires,
I came across this website yesterday. I may prove helpful, and possibly lead you to a good source for lighting.

You can usually match a bulb on Graingers web site since you have the type #.
