I just replaced all of my interior lights with LED as well

What a huge difference they made and are don't get hot like the stock interior lights..! Purchased some on Amazon. I don't have the name brand in front of me but I researched and looked at the reviews of the LED lights I purchased and I am quite pleased with them ..!

Hope you have better luck with LEDs than I did, tried a half a dozen LEDs & all but 2 didn't last 60 days before half of each bulb didn't work. I've only replaced 4 halogen bulbs in 4+ years which those 4 cost about a third of 1 LED, I'll stick to the halogen.

I replaced all mine as well and am quite happy so far. One thing I noticed was that they all caused multiple yellow "streaks" projected everywhere and it was really annoying while reading a book. The solution is to place a piece of single ply toilet paper over the clear part of the lense. Voila, no streaks!

I replaced all our 20 watt halogen with these from Amazon. No issues at all. First I tried were wafer. I personally didn't like them.

My wife wanted lights over the couch, above the bed and a couple other places that wasn't bright so I purchased a 10 pack of led reverse lights from eBay and they were perfect. We hardly even use the other brighter standard bulbs at all.

I'm wondering if we maybe purchased the wrong kind. We changed all the lights in our previous RV with LEDs. We didn't like them. Too bright. We like to softer light of the standard bulbs.
Anyone have any pictures of the two to compare?

I have had a couple of the LED lights in my 305SKP fail...I have been replacing them with a surface mount LED I have purchased at Command Electronics The light is the K9020 Double Omaga Interior Lights with warm LED $39.95...I get the one with the black switch (3 detent switch) off, one side lit, both sides lit...I find it to be very bright, when both sides are lit, but more like an incandescent light, but I can turn one side off if I want it to be a little less bright...I have had good success with these lights...

Update: I've had to replace 4 of 18 of the LED light "packs" so far after 4 months of use. In all a solder joint failed and the same diode(?) fell into the lense. The company has sent replacements. I took a picture and told them they might want to inform their Chinese manufacturer.

I replaced all of mine with relatively cheap ones direct from China on ebay to experiment and have had no problems with several months use. You have to select the brightness and number of LEDs and also the color temperature to get enough and the right color light out of each one. I like it bright so prefer 5050 LEDs as close to 5000-5500 color temp as I can get, which is daylight as opposed to yellowish or blue white. I also put some 5050 string lights around the tub and vanity to light up the dark bathroom and we love it. Nobody has mentioned that you can burn a couple of bright LEDs and the converter fan doesn't come on, since they use so little electricity.

I think quality control is getting better and maybe the price also.

I bought mine on eBay over five years ago with no problems. We use our RV about 6 months a year.

I asked Kohree to replace all 18 LED panels in the 9 lights I bought through Amazon. I told them that hopefully the new ones would have the "updated" solder joints that will not fail in the future They are sending all new LEDs.
