led light swap

Hi all
looking to change interior lights in my 2011 26` bh jay flight to LEDs.
don`t know much about them but they all look the same as far as plugging into the light fixture, no numbers to go by ? they have a flat end with 2 wires to plug in. no numbers or wattage to go by? are they all the same brightness or can you get dimmer ones? and are they all the same size as far as fitting into the fixture??
Thanks in advance for any advice

Unfortunately it is not that simple. You likely have a couple different bulbs throughout your trailer and you will need to figure out what type you have.

921 and ba15s are common types.

Beyond the getting the proper base to be able to directly plug them in you have all different styles of lights as well. Panel type which is a flat panel with led's on it as well as many different sizes of corncob lights.

Then you get the different temperature or color of light usually measured in kelvin.
Terms like warm white, cool white also reflect the color the bulb gives off. If you like the yellowish light a normal incandescent gives off you need to look for lights with a 2700k rating (warm white).

The type and amount and type of led diodes on each bulb will determine the brightness. The flat panel type with lots of LED's are usually the brightest and the small corncob bulbs are usually the dimmest.

You will probably have to play around and find what you like the best. Fortunately they are plentiful on Amazon and pretty cheap.

Small corncob type.

Brighter panel lights....

You just have to make sure they come with bases that are compatible.
