Good afternoon RV.net sports fans. Thought I would share my new LED experience with you for those that might be interested

Today I swapped out all indoor and outdoor light bulbs in my 5er with new LED's.

With all inside and outside lights on my amp draw went from 37.1 to 4.4. The lights are brighter and not even close to hot like the old incandescent bulbs. I'm very pleased with the brighter light as I prefer it.

Punch that "LED Rating" on your man card. Good work!

I like the price drop in LED replacements. The first LED replacements I bought several years ago from Command were $22 each, now you can do an entire RV for $22.

I looked into it a bit but cost turned me away.

What did you find for replacing the porch / scare lights with?

I tried a few different premade and didn't find any bright enough. I built myself a 1000 lumen led lamp to fit in there, just barely.

I bought two different styles in the links below. I also bought two flood type bulbs for the bedroom reading lamps from a seller at Quartzsite in January for $6 each. My home town guy had them for $18 each. For the two batches noted below I paid $45 for 35 LED's. The LED's in the first link come in 10 and 20 piece packages. I bought one of each.

After trying a bunch of different ones from ebay and everywhere else I found these from amazon to be the best and have replaced all the interior lights with them. They are warm color and actually a little brighter than the 921's. And the first ones that were 'wifey approved' - Need I say more.
