One bed has the standard 921 bulb, the other bed has the LED panel. I'm not going to tell you which is which, you decide. lol
I'm guessing the bottom is the LED...

what do I win?......thanks for the post and tips!!!!....I'm looking forward to trying them out. We're not too worried about battery life, but we do notice the excess heat from the fixtures and the fact that the inverter fan comes on when we start pushing the 12V system. Heat is the enemy.....

Yes, This is a great way to cut battery amp draw/energy consumption from lighting and another benefit is eliminating the heat from those incandescent bulbs when you are trying to stay cool. You'd be surprised at how much energy those incandescent bulbs waste into heat (something like 95%). Just some advice...these 168/194 LED bulbs are available faily cheap on Amazon and other sites. The bulbs must be installed with the correct polarity +/- and usually aren't marked (they only work one way). What I do is pull the old bulb out then turn the light on and install the LED...if it doesn't light up; flip it over...its a 50/50 shot. I like the LED pure white lighting over the yellowish incandescents.

Thanks for all the feedback on those lights. I decided since I'm only replacing 4 in the pop-up I'm just going to do it. $10 for four of them, if they work and last even one season I'm good with that...
