On our 2010 we replaced everything with LED and never had issues. In those days we had a member that sold them, but nowdays they seem to be available everywhere. The only thing to be careful of is that cheap LED bulbs may affect your TV reception.

We use led bulbs from superbrightleds.com and like their products.

I replaced our incandescent bulbs with cheap led ones. Every time I turned on bedroom lights, over the air tv went blank...led bulbs produced radio frequency interference. His was confirmed by a friend who was a retired Chief Engineer as a local tv station. Also, the cheap bulbs burned out too quickly.

I found these bulbs in Ebay: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Volts range from 12 to 14 and they do not interfere with tv signal. Also much brighter than cheep ones. Nice warm color.

That is something else you need to look at, color. In the kitchen area and bathroom I like 6000 degree bulbs. They are most like daylight. And in the rest of the camper 4000 or lower. They are warm white.

I bought Phillips T10 fitting leds at Wal-Mart and they are much brighter than cheaper online leds for sale. I found out that I had to switch to incandescent anywhere near the TV because it messed with the picture.

Tell me which lamps you're going to choose, now, too.
