LED replacement bulbs for boondocking

Hi fellow campers. Looking for interior LED replacement bulbs to be energy efficient & reduce battery drain while boondocking.

We like the warm glow our current incandescent bulbs throw so around 3,000 lumens. 194 style bulbs. Checked Amazon and not finding it. Appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks

LED replacement for 1156 two-pin halogen

You might want to consider the following if you are looking to replace a two pin halogen (1156). Good communication with seller.

LED replacement for 1156 two-pin halogen

Just posted this for another message. This seems to be a good replacement for the 1156/two-pin halogen bulb. Seller experience was good. Needed seven for our 16' scamp so ordered a couple extra. No long term results to report.

3,000 Lumens is a whole lot of light! Lumens are light output, not color temperature.
An old style incandescent bulb is approx 2,700 K (degrees Kelvin).
Bright white is about 3,000 K
Daylight bulbs are about 4,000K
Other daylight bulbs can be found at 5,000K.
Basically, the higher the color temperature the more "blue" the light appears.
I think you are going to be happiest with the lower color temperature, 2,700-3,000K
Remember, Lumens are light energy output. Color temperature in K is the "color"

You can put a “jell” in the fixtures, it is a colored film we use in the movie business to change the “color” of lights, I used it in all of my lights in my trailer to get rid of the obnoxious blue led lighting that the factory led out out, I’ll try to post the exact name of the jell you need,

I use these. Not cheap, but they've worked well for me, and are similar to incandescent.

if your trailer uses 1156 (bayonet mount older-style car tail light bulbs), I've had very good luck with the ones from www.superbrightled.com ... My Casita has nothing but.

I've also used their bulbs in other form factors, again, very good results.

edit; I just saw that you said 194 style bulbs, dunno how i missed that. here, try a few of these...

warm 3000k, 85 lumens, 360 degree pattern, voltage regulated...
https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...tributes/10831

and IF your fixture will take them, these are 170 lumen, with all the light coming out one side, 3000K, also regulated
https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...0-lumens/2804/



I mention voltage regulation, as the voltages on our trailers tend to meander around quite a bit depending on whether you are on the power converter, or solar, vs strictly on your battery. unregulated LEDs change brightness with voltage, and can flicker and stuff, while regulated bulbs will be a constant brightness anywhere in the 10-30VDC range.

My Scamp also uses only bulbs from them. Some people have been critical of me for spending more for their products, but in almost every case I have found that I got my money's worth. If nothing else, I recommend going to their website for technical information. That information is also part of the value that I have paid for.

For the warm glow, you want a color temperature for the bulb that does not exceed 2800K.

I would highly recommend Dan Brown at www.LED4RV.com

All the bulbs I have purchased from him work perfectly and perform exactly as I want them to.

Excellent selection and customer service.

Mike

Yup. Bezos needs the money. He's not a trillionaire yet.

Most LED bulbs you buy are not the kelvin they claim to be. I use only M4Products lamps as I find them to be spot on. I use the Natural white which is neither yellowish nor bluish, just a pure white. Old eyes need all the help they can get.

https://m4products.com/

I have bought some 194 replacements for marker lights on a trailer from superbrightleds and found them to be quality, but for other lighting needs, i stick with M4 because of the accuracy of color and quality of the product.
