LED Dome lights

I'm looking to swap out the energy sucking 921 bulbs in my Scamp with LED lights. I'm looking at these on Amazon and was wondering if anyone else has used these? I'm just wondering if they'll fit in the dome fixture. Has anyone used these in their dome lights? I have a 2011 13' Scamp.

Mike I don't think you will be happy with any LED lights that are less than 300 luminous.... or at least thats been my experience and few other I camp with.

I recommend these.

GRV T10 921 194 24-3528 SMD LED Bulb lamp Super Bright Warm White DC 12V Pack of 2

I found them a little tight going into the fixture, with care needed to insert them.

After installed you can forget about them.

For reading I found 200 lumens warm white adequate but some shapes, like the ones you show, would not fit my fixture. I went with these.

They are not just LEDs but include a power circuit to keep the brightness constant at varying voltage levels and are polarity neutral. I added a piece of circuit board so the would fit the socket better and a piece of double sided tape. They are pricey.

The ones you are looking at appear to have the same voltage circuitry and have a color temp cooler than mine. If they will fit your fixture I would try them. They certainly are cheap enough. Raz

I also found the flat types that Raz has pictures to work better than the round type the OP was considering.

Also like the warm white inside the trailer vs the cool white.

I changed the existing incandescent lamps in my Casita to LED's The interior LED lamps are 360 lumens /warm white . the exterior lamps are 420 lumens / cool white . They provide ample light for our use . The LED lamps put out little if any heat which is a benefit in warmer weather . Not cheap but worth the cost !

I have had good service from the paddle type with voltage regulator shown by Raz. I also like the 36 and 48 diode flat panels with base adaptors and 3M high tack foam adhesive on the back of the panel. They fit handily in Bargman dome fixtures using the T11 adaptor. I still use the stalk type in an outdoor fixture because I have a couple but won't order more.

Agreed. Mine are 280 and bright, but I wouldn't go much less.

Also agree. I think Jared and I have the same lights. Not bad, but only slightly dimmer then the incandescent equivalent. Lots less power though.

I actually got these for the three dome lights:
Amazon.com: 2 sets of Gold Stars 92111802-02 LED Replacement Light Bulb 921/T15 Wedge base 120 Lumens 12v or 24v Natural White: Automotive

I put these in the reading lights and for the outside light:
Amazon.com: HQRP 4-Pack BA15s Bayonet Base 15 LEDs SMD 3528 LED Bulb Warm White for #93 #1141 #1156 RV Interior / Ceiling / Porch Lights Replacement + Coaster: Home Improvement

We just got back from a 4 day trip in Yosemite and found the dome lights put out more than enough light and the reading lights may not be as bright as the originals but it's perfectly fine for reading. The same bulb that is being used for reading is also in the outside light and I couldn't be happier with the results. The best part is the fact the battery barely took a hit at all! I can turn on one or all of the lights and not worry about the battery.
