Our 2014 (oct) 16 Scap uses # 912 bulbs inside and the bayonette style for the porch light.

So inside and outside are Not the same.

Just received 2 packs of 2 LEDs from Amazon type 912 White and they are super.

Very inexpensive. Fist pair of LEDs I bought at an auto supply place were quite dim and nearly 3x the cost by comparison.

We chose to leave the dimmer one in "potty room" so not to blind oneself at night when turned on.

Supplies enough light for aiming for us guys and finding the seat for the rest of the crew. OK Sorry TMI....

HTH

Cheers,
Bat Dude

Hi Jim,
We have a 2014 scamp. We replaced all our bulbs with led. If you go to the scamp website and look at parts store, new items it shows led lights. It will give you the what base number you need. We took that info and ordered off of Amazon.

Cheapest not always best. I'm gradually replacing cheapos that came with my new trailer. The cheap LEDs interfere with our hdtv signal. Quality bulbs do not.

I discovered that most LED Light Bulbs cause interference with broadcast TV signals.
Which I find strange as my TV is a LED HDTV ! How come it does not interfere with itself ? It does in fact have thousands of LEDs in the screen.

Someone with EE background might actually explain it in some detail, but the interference comes from the circuitry, not from the LED light source itself, and those circuits can vary quite a lot.

LED's have a forward voltage drop of around 1.2 or so volts. With a trailer's battery supply of 12 volts, either a series resistor is used to drop the voltage, which wastes energy, or high speed switching transistors (IGBT), which can make some electrical "noise". As far as an LED tv, the components used to drive the displays are already operating at low voltages, with their internal supplies adequately filtered.

The IGBT circuitry for the LED lights is really quite small, now contained in the devices themselves. Some have better internal filtering to keep the switching "noise" contained, other are switching at frequencies that aren't as bothersome. Sometimes just adding filters to the lighting wires helps somewhat, as the supply wires can inadvertently act as antennas for the noise.

That's as simple as I can explain it.

Definitely the bulbs in our case. Immediate cause and effect when I switch out "bad" bulb for a better bulb. Have replicated the interference in various bulb receptacles though out the trailer.
