Electrical bright bulbs led for inside lights boler

We have rear top lights not working; looks like they are also chained like the rest of the lights. Will go to the first light out and check connections at that point first.

Want to switch the interior light bulbs in old style fixtures with led for less power draw on battery. The ones I tried do not shine as brightly as the original bulbs any recommendations?

Now that all people in the stores are wearing masks and the virus is under control in Canada they have opened up camping. We are getting ready Seems you have to have a toilet of some type and a way to wash but we have our own washroom

marker lights are in parallel, one out should not affect others. For interioir lights I found flat panel led arrays the stuck on the inside of the fixture and had a bulb adapter like this one:

Your trailer fixtures probably have 1156 bulbs that produce about 400 lumens of light. You need an LED with equivalent shape and output and a color range of 2700 - 3000K. They are available at various sites.

So you suggest a cheap Chinese LED then warn that we wont like it... hmm

There are LED lights with warm light like incandescents. A reputable company that provides real specifications is my choice to get good lights that I like. Such as superbrightleds. LEDs from eBay, Ali Express, etc is a crap shoot at best and junk at worst.

yeah, I second the emotion re: Superbright LEDs. most of their LEDs are regulated (they will say something like 10-18VDC or 9-30VDC or whatever), and these won't flicker when you are on the power converter and its voltage varies as it charges your house battery.
