Interior LED Lights?

For those that have changed out interior lights for LED's, where's a good place to get them? Is it a simple swap-out, remove old ones & put in new ones, or is there more to it than that? (Just got a 2014 Sport 16.)
Thanks!
Irene

I bought LED bulbs on EBay. Simple swap out.

For the halogens in the ceiling lights, I ordered my LED's from Airstream, but for the under cabinet lighting, bath area, and closet, I ordered the complete fixtures (look exactly like the factory installed) from Amazon. Also replaced the step light. Lat thing to change is the light in the rear access storage area. Hugh energy saving since we boondock and get power from solar.

This is my go-to site. They specilize in many AS lighting products. Customer service is great:

This one I use for unique stuff where I am looking for something LED4RV doesn't have:

I got them very cheaply on Amazon. Be careful to get the soft white kind or you probably wont like them. I just replace all bulbs, not fixtures. And those outside already have LEDs in them. I think there are 13...

I got mine from Airstream, lady very nice walking me thru. Swap hard up inside the cabinets, even with trifocals and bending around backwards with my left handedness, those little prongs were tough to get in sometimes and very delicate.

I thought the 2014 coaches all came with LEDs. Am I missing something?

The FC's sure do, maybe the sport is still using halogen?

The Sport (16 at least) uses the bayonet style push and twist 12 volt regular bulbs inside. Easy to find and replace, no hunting for tiny holes.

I would also check the color temp of the new LEDs. I found using 3700 to 4000 K for general lighting and 5000 k for task lighting worked well for me!

A bit off topic, but since you bring this subject....
We have 2016 FC 19 and it allready comes with LED, but the light is so bright and white that it feels like a hospital. Can those be changed to something warmer?

Looking to replace my led lights on my 22fb. I took the housing apart and found everything soldered. They dont make it easy to replace. Do these leds not blow out?

First mod I attempted and completed on my 2015 22FB was switching out the factory installed incandescent heaters for LED's. I replaced them with a combination of warm and bright LED bulbs throughout. I just popped the lenses off the fixtures, pushed in the bulbs and turned. Out they came.

Why do you want to replace them?... and WHICH lamps are you replacing? (Outside running-lights? Interior dome lights?)

Your last sentence indicates they are not "out"... so,... again, why do you want to replace them. They last practically forever.
