LED tail lights are the way to go for sure! Im going to look into some for inside lighting.

Take it to the limit!
For one, the electric saved is worth the price. Second, the heat given off is well worth it. My plastic lenses started melting with the reg. bulbs. You can get good cheap bulbs off Ebay from China (where they all are made) just make sure they have the amount of light you need and are the right color. I replace all 48 of my bulbs with LED's and it makes a big difference. I use the 36 led bulbs that are warm white. You can leave them on for days before your battery drains.
In my life I've spent my money on women, booze, Harleys, guitars and traveling, the rest I just wasted...

One more componet that benifits from LEDs is the 12 volt converter. They take a big load off this expensive item any time you have a light on (12V).
Quality LEDs are not cheap. I am slowly changing my entire hauler over and it will run a little over $800 before I finish - OUCH!!!
Start with the lights you use most. This will gain the most savings. Then as you have the money and time, change the others. You may find, as I have, there are a couple lights you want to keep as they are but most of them will be changed over.

It is unnecessary to pay huge prices for led's. The ebay ones referenced earlier in the thread are just fine.
Been there done that.. You get what you pay for... I tried all the e-bay bulbs a few years ago, after they all failed, and one even tried to burn my trailer down. I switched to Rigid Industries LED's and have not had any issues! Scr3w E-Bay cheapies!!

By all means take care of which bulbs you buy. I was an early adopter and quickly found I needed to have units with a wide range of voltage acceptance. At that time I was paying $27.00 per bulb on Ebay (including shipping, which the seller WOULD NOT combine) which was about a 33% savings over his "stand alone store" where he would combine shipping. Those are now available for reasonable prices on Ebay. The Rigid Industries are most probably made in China and marked up 500%. I do agree they work well, but I don't think spending $800 to relamp an RV is a good or wise use of funds.
