http://www.superbrightleds.comwas the website I used. I think there are several others out there. I used the PCB series bulbs to replace the overhead lights in mine. Lots of options to consider (amount of light, color, base, etc.). They are not cheap though. I haven't looked at the reading light bulbs yet, just the overhead lights. Those cut too deep into my wallet. Since I dry camp a lot, I needed to conserve the batteries, so I targeted the main living area bulbs. I'll work on the other as funds are available. I was impressed with the amount of light they put out and you can't tell that they put any drain on the batteries.

These are the brightest LEDs I have come across. You should find what you want here.

I changed out the 110V over the dinning table with one of their doubles. I found I could unhook one side because it was so bright. I wish I had come across these before I bought so many from

For you guys that have the led lights. Areyou having any problems with them? How long have you had them?



I ask because I have had lousy luck with the few I have tried. I bought a couple of overhead replacement bulbs about 4-5 years ago and they lasted about a month before one stopped working completely and one started blinking.



I figured they were new technology and I'll try them again when they get the bugs worked out. So about one year ago I bought a complete overhead light and a reading light bulb at an RV show. Both were about $15-20 and were much brighter than my first ones.



The overhead light has about 25 led's and 5 of them stated flickering after a couple of weeks. The reading light just started flashing on and off a couple of days ago. So now they are both in the junk drawer.



Since I do a lot of boondocking, I would like to eventually use more leds butI probably won't buy any more until I can find some with a long warranty and a place I can return themif they fail.

I dealt with Command Electronics and they were very helpful and really fast to ship. I would recommend them.

<t></t><table border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" width="584"><t><tr style="font-size: 9pt;"><td valign="top" width="450">Double Omega Interior Lights with Warm White LEDs






These complete light assemblies feature two of Command's warm white

LED module with 30 LED's per board producing an amazing 1,020 Lumens.

Drawing a fraction of the electrical current, each of these boards run

150 degrees cooler than the standard 921 bulb. The light output 42%

brighter

than the standard 921 bulbs and the color of the light is excellent (no

blue tint!) Electrical draw is reduced from 2.8 amps per double light

to

only 0.94 amps.





You can also upgrade your current Command Electronics Omega Double Light using two of the K-0026 kits below. Click here.

campsurveyor, At the price of these LEDs, I think you should not order any until you are sure of what you want/need. My understanding is they are non returnable.
Also, I don't know of any "one bulb" that would qualify for a reading light.

Ridgeman, I don't know what you have for LEDs, but you shouldn't be having trouble like you described. I have not had trouble with any of mine----so far. (say that and it will jump right up and bite me)

Here is my company We are going a few at a time.eventually we will change them all to warm white.
http://www.jclampstand.com/index.php?md=products
I'm big on the use USA stuff and Jirah is a biblical thing so they really would have to mess up to make me mad.I will admit I had to solder a lead on 1 of the lights they sent me but I pulled on the connection as I was hooking it up and I re-soldered the connection it works fine.The light is a little different on LEDS I will admit but we can live with the difference for the amperage draw we experience while boon-docking
