I've been researching and looking at LED lighting options as well. As a test I recently purchased a set of these. They have that awful "blue" tint and are nowhere near as bright as the bulbs they replaced. I'll probably just put them in the fixtures in the kid's bunks.

Thanks to some posters here I checked out that eBay seller and saw these. Disc shaped, directed downwards, warm white and seem like they should be fairly bright. Does anyone have any experience with this type of LED light? I checked ledwholesalers and they sell what seems to be the EXACT same bulb at a whopping $10 a PIECE. In my opinion, that's a bit too pricey for a single bulb. I have around 23 bulbs in my TT.

I'll probably purchase a few as a test.

after switching to less, consider solar panel on your roof. A 80 watt should keep your batteries fully charged with less, the only time you need generator is for a/c which you may not if you are in the mountains.

The warm whites have a greenish tinge compared to incandescents. That may or may not bother you, so a test is a good idea.

The cool whites are a little bit whiter than full daylight, so if you're thinking of those a test is also a good idea.

I replaced all of the 15bs auto bulbs in my TT with either 36-SMD 3528 or 48-SMD 3528 in warm white color. I used the higher lumens output panels in areas that needed better task lighting and the smaller panels in areas that didn't. I made my own fixtures that have a clear glass lens. I couldn't be happier. Most of the LED SMD panels sold ny Asian sellers on Ebay come with three adaptors to fit the RV or auto sockets.
