Thanks for your footwork on this. I ordered some and the shipping was quick. I put them in and you can't tell the difference in color. I also ordered some of the reading light bulbs but they have not arrived yet.

Command Electronics has been a popular place to get some panels, but they were always too bright for my tastes. Recently they have added a smaller panel that is similar to the one I have above, but does have the ba15s adapter....

These 21 LED panels are on this page along with the brighter 30 LED ones.
Just installed two of the 21 LED panels. I like them! I'll be using these for the living room ceiling (three double bulb fixtures). I had two LEDTrailerlights bulbs in one of those fixtures but moved them to the single fixtures (two total) over the rear recliners. Will use the 75 lumen LEDWholesalers that were over the recliners as spares.

KendallP,

Excellent detailed writeup!! You show many of the very same ones I'm been using for around two years.

I converted my Class C RV to 100% LED instead of: Changing my RV battery charger, adding more RV batteries, or adding solar. This is about the best tweak I've made to my rig since we bought it in 2006. They of course provide no significant battery drain, low heat lighting during warm weather, and the ability to leave several lights turned on for better evening ambience inside the RV.

IMO, LED is a "must have" for the boondocker. Going to LED dropped 400W in my 5er.

Just updated the OP with more on the reading lamp bulb. It reads...

More and more folks have now ordered these 1139F replacement reading bulbs and the response appears to be overwhelmingly positive. Here's a thread on it.

I just received 6 LEDs from "A Chinese ebay Store" described in your OP. So far I have installed one over the dinette by breaking the original incandescant bulb and soldering the LED wires to the old base. So far I am pleased with the result. The color is good and the light on the table is is about the same but the peripheral light is less. The price was right, 6 for under $30 delivered. Guess I have to break 5 more bulbs.

Thanks for the great review of LEDs!

Cool!

You can find empty, male ba15s units for sale. This was discussed sometime back; long before this thread.

And the 36 LED Panel now too! And still only 5 bucks.

I'll update the OP.

Thanks!
